13 is the eighth studio album by Die Ärzte, released on May 25, 1998. It is their most successful album, going platinum in Germany and gold in Austria and Switzerland.[2][3][4] The 13th track, "Männer sind Schweine", is their most successful single.

The CD version of the album features a hidden track in the pregap of the first song. This technique was later used frequently - on Geräusch, Jazz ist anders, Farin Urlaub's Am Ende der Sonne and Bela B.'s Bingo. On vinyl versions of Jazz ist anders and Am Ende der Sonne though, the hidden tracks are not lost, but put after the last track.

The album features a large amount of film and TV samples. Samples are used on tracks 1, 4, 5,[5] 8, 10, 12, 13, 16 and on the hidden track.
