The Lemonheads is an album by The Lemonheads. It was released on September 25th 2006 (see 2006 in music) in the UK and on September 26th 2006 in the USA, on the Vagrant label. Although a "reunion" of the Lemonheads, the album featured none of the original members aside from lead singer Evan Dando. Instead, the album features Bill Stevenson on drums/guitars/backing vocals and Karl Alvarez on bass, both from ALL and Descendents. The album also featured contributions from Josh Lattanzi (bass), Garth Hudson from The Band on keyboards, and J Mascis from Dinosaur Jr on lead guitar.

The tracklisting of the album was sequenced by Evan Dando's wife, model Elizabeth Moses who also appears on the inner artwork.

"Steve's Boy" is dedicated to William A. Stevenson, Bill Stevenson's father.

A limited edition yellow vinyl version of the album was released in 2008, with signed copies made available via the band's website.
