"Bent" is the first single from Mad Season, the second album by the rock band Matchbox Twenty. The song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on July 22, 2000, and stayed there for one week before being unseated by 'N Sync's "It's Gonna Be Me".

The song had an interesting reception in the UK market, as "bent" is a slang term synonymous with "gay": the chorus of the song contains the lyric "Can you help me? I'm bent." The song also contains suggestive lyrics in this vein: "Keep breaking me in", a slang term for being sexually penetrated.

This song has no links to homosexuality; Thomas spoke on Storytellers that this song is about two people who are both messed up, but because they're together, it doesn't matter. This was Thomas' first attempt at a love song and he believes it is co-dependent of the 21st century.
