Tweekend is the second album by American duo The Crystal Method, released in 2001. The album featured the hit lead single "Name of the Game", which has been featured in many films, television shows and commercials. The other two singles from the album were "Murder" (a.k.a. "You Know It's Hard") and "Wild, Sweet and Cool". The album title is derived from the massive demise of the West Coast rave scene in the late 1990s and 2000s.
