Darkhorse is Los Angeles based rap rock band Crazy Town's second studio album, released on November 12, 2002.[5]

The album peaked at No. 120 on the Billboard 200 and No. 164 in the UK. It sold less than 13,000 units in its first week.[6]

Crazy Town stated they were not personally disappointed that the album did not sell as well as their last, The Gift of Game, considering they were moving the band in a new direction, away from the pop success they achieved with their number 1 song "Butterfly".[6] Crazy Town broke up several months after the album's release, citing amongst other things including pressure from their record company for a "Butterfly" follow-up.[7]

The second and final single, "Hurt You So Bad", features Rivers Cuomo from Weezer on the track's guitar solo.[8]
