Resolver is the third studio album by the American alternative rock band Veruca Salt. It was released on May 16, 2000, on Beyond Records followed by an Australian release on December 6, 2002. This album was the first for the band after the departure of founding member Nina Gordon.

Like their previous album, Eight Arms to Hold You, the title is inspired by The Beatles, in this case, a play on the title of their 1966 album Revolver.
