Nixon is a 2000 album by Lambchop. The album was 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.[9] The song "Up with People" was subsequently remixed by Zero 7.

The sleeve is a painting by Wayne White, a childhood friend of Kurt Wagner who also provided cover art for Thriller, Aw Cmon and No You Cmon by the band.[10]
