Renegade is the third studio album by Swedish power metal band HammerFall. It was released on October 9, 2000 on the Nuclear Blast Records label and is the first album to feature drummer Anders Johansson. Former drummer of HammerFall and founder of heavy metal band In Flames Jesper Strömblad still wrote some of the album's songs, even after parting ways with the band in 1997. The album debuted on the Swedish charts at number one and was eventually awarded a gold certification.
