"Pendulum" is the sixth album by American band Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1970 (see 1970 in music). It was also the final Creedence album with rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty who left the group shortly after this album was released. The group continued as a trio.

The most sonically adventurous of Creedence albums, the "surprisingly durable" (Robert Christgau) "Pendulum" is noted for its widespread use of horns and keyboards in contrast to the group's previous albums, which were dominated by guitar. A female backing chorus even appears on one track. Among several lesser-known Fogerty gems ("Pagan Baby," "Sailor's Lament," "It's Just a Thought") were two top-ten hits, "Hey Tonight" and "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?" Both songs reached number eight in 1971. It also contains their only Avant-Garde venture "Rude Awakening #2".__NOTOC__
