"Mein" (German for either "mine" or "my") is the second single from the American alternative metal band Deftones' fifth album, Saturday Night Wrist, and their eleventh overall single. The song features Serj Tankian of System of a Down on vocals. The single was released on March 13, 2007.

In the week of January 20 the band filmed a music video for "Mein", which was subsequently leaked to YouTube on March 2. The video, directed by Bernard Gourley, depicts many hip hop influences and breakdancers while the band performs on top of a parking structure with the Los Angeles skyline in the background.[1]

The song has garnered little radio play and subsequently failed to chart well on rock charts in America, peaking at #40 on the US Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.[2] An NME review derided the track as "boring".[3]

Recently, in an interview on, someone asked Serj Tankian about the song: "How did the collaboration with Deftones come by for the song "Mein"?"; Serj answered: "Chino asked and I obliged :) We´ve all been friends an toured together for many years" [4]
