Q2K is the seventh studio album by progressive metal band Queensrÿche, released on 14 September 1999. It was the only Queensrÿche studio album to feature guitarist Kelly Gray, who, in the early 1980s, was in a band called Myth with vocalist Geoff Tate. "Breakdown" was released as the first single off Q2K. "The Right Side of My Mind" was released as the band's first music video since the album Promised Land and has had occasional airplay on VH1 Classic, which also premiered it in a special co-hosted by Geoff Tate.

Rhino Entertainment purchased Q2K from Atlantic Records and re-released it on August 29, 2006 with four bonus tracks. In Canada, the album was released by Anthem Records.

Two songs "Discipline" and "Monologue" still remain unreleased after Q2K sessions.[5][6]
