"Send the Pain Below" is a song by Chevelle and was released as the second single from their second album Wonder What's Next. The song is considered their most successful where it first hit #1 on Modern Rock Tracks chart on July 5, 2003 for 1 week and stayed on the chart for 36 weeks, then it hit #1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart a week later on July 12, 2003 for 4 non-consecutive weeks and stayed on the chart for 35 weeks. It hit #65 on the Billboard Hot 100 where it charted lower than their prior hit "The Red" at #56, but "Send the Pain Below" was considered more successful on the rock and alternative charts and it still had more pop success despite charting lower on the Hot 100. Lyrically, "Send the Pain Below" appears to describe a relationship where one person suppresses and hurts the other. It is told through the receiver's perspective.[citation needed]

The song's music video revolves around a snowboarder and his difficulties in striving for excellent performance. The band is seen playing the song in a dark room, with their breath creating fog in the cold air. The video is directed by Jeff Richter.

The song is featured in the video game Donkey Konga 2.
