"The Slackers and Friends" is an album by the ska/reggae band The Slackers. It saw limited release in November 2002 (see 2002 in music), and was later re-released with two additional tracks on January 27, 2004 (see 2004 in music).

The album consists of collaborations with various figures from the ska and reggae scenes, including Cornell Campbell, Glen Adams of The Upsetters, Ari Up of the Slits, Doreen Schaefer of the Skatalites, and acoustic ska artist Chris Murray. The original edition of the album also featured an eight-minute-long hidden track (a remix of the album's other songs) by DJ Cris the Reducer. On the re-release, this was replaced by two additional tracks featuring Susan Cadogan. Several of the songs are remixes of previously recorded Slackers songs, while others are unique to this album.
