"Mein" (German for either "mine" or "my") is the second single from the American alternative metal band Deftones' fifth album, Saturday Night Wrist, and their 11th single overall. The song featured Serj Tankian of System of a Down on vocals. The single was released on March 13, 2007.

The song garnered little radio play and subsequently failed to chart well on American rock charts, peaking at No. 40 on the US Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.[1] An NME review derided the track as "boring".[2]

In a later interview on Reddit, Tankian was asked how the collaboration had come about, replying: "Chino asked and I obliged :) We´ve all been friends an toured together for many years" [3]

Music video[edit]

During the week of January 20, 2007, the band filmed a music video for "Mein", which was subsequently leaked to YouTube on March 2. Directed by Bernard Gourley, the video depicted many hip hop influences and breakdancers while the band performed on top of a parking structure with the Los Angeles skyline in the background.[4]
