Inertia is the second studio album from the U.S. alternative rock band The Exies, released on January 7, 2003. The video to the first single "My Goddess" was directed by hip hop video director Diane Martel.[3] The concept of the video revolved around the band playing in front of oncoming traffic- some of which were doing speeds as high as 70 miles an hour. "My Goddess" was filmed on Highway 2 in Los Angeles County in the fall of 2002.[4]

It is their most successful album, reaching #115 on the Billboard 200. Inertia and their next studio album Head for the Door have sold over a combined 400,000 units.
