World Gone Crazy is the thirteenth studio album by American rock band The Doobie Brothers, released on September 28, 2010. It debuted at number 39 on the Billboard top 200 albums chart, their highest charting position since 1989. The first single is a remake of their 1971 debut single Nobody. Tom Johnston states about the album "This album has been in the mix for five years, but we didn’t seriously start putting the nuts and bolts together until three years ago."[2]

Songwriting was split between guitarists Pat Simmons and Tom Johnston. The latter wrote the title track and he told Songfacts: "Part of the inspiration of 'World Gone Crazy' is the world has gotten a little nuts. And between the wars that we've had, between violence in the streets and most of the cities, what people are doing to each other around the world is not stuff that would have happened 20 years ago." [3] It was the first Doobie Brothers album to be produced by Ted Templeman since One Step Closer 30 years previously.
