"1965" is the fifth studio album by American alternative rock band The Afghan Whigs, released on October 27, 1998.

The album received critical acclaim upon release, with many critics praising the band's new direction and Greg Dulli's powerful vocals.

The album features guest appearances from a number of musicians, including former Whig Steve Earle, as well as members of The Dixie Hummingbirds, The Memphis Horns, and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band.
