Insignificance is the third Drag City album by American musician Jim O'Rourke. It was released in 2001. O'Rourke uses Drag City for his more conventional work. It is the third of three albums recorded by O'Rourke to be named after films by Nicolas Roeg, and features percussionist Tim Barnes, Jeff Tweedy and Glenn Kotche of Wilco (both of whom O'Rourke would later collaborate with as Loose Fur).
