Convicts is the seventh studio album by the Australian rock band You Am I.

The first single is "It Ain't Funny How We Don’t Talk Anymore", which was released as a digital download on 22 April 2006.

Tim Rogers later said of the album, "It hadn't been a great couple of years, and it's even worse when I look back at it now. I had no confidence at all so I wanted the guitars too loud and everything aggressive and loose."[5]
