Tweekend is the second studio album by American electronic music duo The Crystal Method, released on July 31, 2001 by Outpost Recordings and Geffen Records. The album title is derived from the demise of the West Coast rave scene in the late 1990s and 2000s.
The album features the single "Name of the Game", which has been featured in many films, television series and commercials. The other two singles from the album were "Murder" and "Wild, Sweet and Cool".
