This article is about the album by Creed. For the EP by Angie Miller, see Weathered (EP).

Weathered is the third studio album by American rock band Creed, released on November 20, 2001. Some versions are enhanced CDs and include videos. It has been certified 6× platinum by the RIAA.[6] The album entered the Billboard 200 at #1, selling 887,000 copies in its first week of release,[7] and remained in the top spot for eight consecutive weeks, a record which Creed shares with The Beatles album 1. The album contains Creed's shortest ("Freedom Fighter"), longest ("Who's Got My Back?"), heaviest ("Bullets"), and softest song ("Lullaby"). The album sold more than 6 million copies in the U.S alone.

Weathered was the last Creed album released until Full Circle came out in 2009, with the band disbanding for five years during the interim. It is the only Creed album not to include bass guitarist Brian Marshall, who departed from the band in 2000 for reasons that were never fully clarified. Mark Tremonti, the band's guitarist, played the album's bass parts. The album received mixed reviews from critics.
