"Graduate" is a song by Third Eye Blind and written by Stephan Jenkins and Kevin Cadogan. The b-side "Horror Show" was written by Jenkins and Cadogan as well and later released on the "How's It Going to Be" single in 1998.

The band played this at the American Music Awards in 1998 changing some of the lyrics to "can I masturbate" in place of "can I graduate."

The song sounds as if it is about a typical high school graduation, however, Jenkins wrote it when, in the mid-90's, he wanted to "graduate" from being so unable to express himself, something that he also couldn't do with some of the labels wanting to buy his band.
