Freak Magnet is the eighth studio album by Violent Femmes. It was released on February 22, 2000, and the featured single was "Sleepwalkin'."
Originally scheduled for a 1998 release on Interscope Records, Freak Magnet was pulled when the band was dropped from the label, although promo copies with a different track list were released and still circulate. Due to the poor performance of the album both critically and commercially, the band would not record any new music until releasing a cover of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" in 2008, and release their next studio album until We Can Do Anything in 2016. The UK edition was released via Cooking Vinyl in 2000, whilst a reissue complete with live bonus tracks were released via Shout! Factory on May 24, 2005.
