"Crash and Burn" is a song by Australian pop group Savage Garden from their second album Affirmation, released as the album's third single in the beginning of 2000. It hit number one in several countries including Finland and Norway, and it reached the top five in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Sweden and France among others.

In the United Kingdom, the song reached #14, while in the United States, the song peaked on #24. The video is shot in a partially fantastical theme, featuring scenes of troubled young adults interspersed with scenes of the group singing in a warehouse. Messages such as "stay connected" and lyrics from the song, such as "fall apart" appear on the screen. At the end of the video, Hayes uses Auslan to sing the last lyrics of the song.
