Nixon is the fifth studio album by American rock band Lambchop. The album was released on February 8, 2000 and became a critical and commercial breakthrough for the band, especially in the United Kingdom, where it polled highly in several year-end polls in music magazines, among them Uncut magazine.[13] The song "Up with People" was subsequently remixed by Zero 7.

The sleeve is a painting by Wayne White, a childhood friend of Lambchop frontman Kurt Wagner who had also provided cover art for the band's albums Thriller, Aw Cmon and No You Cmon.[14]
