"Dysfunction" is alternative metal band Staind's second studio album and their first release under the Flip/Elektra label. "Just Go," "Mudshovel," and "Home" were released as singles. The song "Mudshovel" can also be found on their previous album, "Tormented", albeit in a slightly different form; although, this version of the song goes under the title of "Mudshuvel."

The album's artwork is also worth noting as it reflects the album's title. All four band members are depicted with dysfunctional properties related to their position in the band; Aaron (vocalist) is shown without a mouth, Mike (guitarist) is shown with webbed hands, Johnny (bassist) is shown with only one arm and Jon (drums and percussion) is shown with no eyes. Finally the most obvious reference to the album's title is on the cover; the clown's reflection is incorrect.

"Dysfunction" contains a hidden track called "Excess Baggage," included after a long period of silence at the end of "Spleen."
