"Midlife Crisis" is a song by the alternative metal band Faith No More, from their fourth studio album Angel Dust. According to singer Mike Patton "The song is based on a lot of observation and a lot of speculation. But in sort of a pointed way its kind of about Madonna... I think it was a particular time where I was being bombarded with her image on TV and in magazines and her whole schtick kind of speaks to me in that way... like she's going through some sort of problem. It seems she's getting a bit desperate." The song also had a working title of 'Madonna'. Patton has also denied that the song is about having a midlife crisis, as he didn't know what one would feel like, but says "it's more about creating false emotion, being emotional, dwelling on your emotions and in a sense inventing them." The song contains a sample from "Cecilia", as performed by Simon and Garfunkel and another from "Car Thief", as performed by The Beastie Boys. "Midlife Crisis" is featured on the soundtrack for the videogames Tony Hawk's Underground 2 and also Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, on the fictional Alternative station Radio X. This song was covered by the industrial metal band Bile on their 2002 cover album, The Copy Machine. It was also covered by American Rock band Disturbed on their album Indestructible (as a B-side track).

Go on and wring my neck
Like when a rag gets wet
A little discipline
For my pet genius
My head is like lettuce
Go on dig your thumbs in
I cannot stop giving
I'm thirty-something
Sense of security
Like pockets jingling
Midlife crisis
Suck ingenuity
Down through the family tree
You're perfect, yes, it's true
But without me you're only you
Your menstruating heart
It ain't bleedin' enough for two
It's a midlife crisis...
What an inheritance
The salt and the kleenex
Morbid self attention
Bending my pinky back
A little discipline
A donor by habit
A little discipline
Rent an opinion
Sense of security
Holding blunt instrument
I'm a perfectionist
And perfect is a skinned knee
You're perfect, yes, it's true
But without me you're only you
Your menstruating heart
It ain't bleedin' enough for two
It's a midlife crisis...
