Mad Season, also known as Mad Season by Matchbox Twenty, is the second studio album from American rock band Matchbox Twenty, released in May 2000. The album was a significant departure from the band's debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You, as it moved from a straight rock sound to poppier sounds and experimental rock. While not as successful as its predecessor, the album entered and peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200 with first week sales of 365,000 and was certified 4× Platinum in the United States in October 2001.
