"Remedy" is a song by post-grunge and alternative metal band Seether. It is the second track on their album Karma and Effect, and became their first single to hit the top spot on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, dropping and regaining the spot for a total of 8 weeks at #1.

The music video, directed by Dean Karr, features the band playing on the deck of a ship that appears to have run aground with fans who were selected via a contest on the band's website to appear in the shallow water below. Interspersed are shots of singer Shaun Morgan dressed up as an evil carnival barker taking a group of people on "the world's most terrifying ride".

It also served as the theme song for WWE's pay-per-view Summerslam 2005, as well as being featured in the video game WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw 2006.

It is a playable song in the video game Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades.

It was released as a downloadable song in the Rock Band Network on March 18, 2010.
