3 Knocks is the only studio album by Australian ambient band, Pendulum. The album was released in 1997, and consisted of two discs. The first disc, called Well Being, contained new material, while the second disc, Exploitation, contained songs released in earlier years (1994 through 1996). Not long after the album was released, the band split up.

Well Being, included their biggest single "Coma", which was released later in 1997 and included samples from the movies Coming to America, A Clockwork Orange, and Natural Born Killers with lyrics also quoting Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. The single ranked #32 on the Triple J Hottest 100, 1997 and peaked at #46 on the ARIA Charts in August 1997. Exploitation included their track "Awesome Party", which samples lines from the movie Wayne's World 2 and TV cartoon The Ren & Stimpy Show.
