Free! Weird! is an ongoing series of free releases by The Residents, on the group's official website. The program of monthly releases began in mid-1999 and lasted until the middle of the following year, with thirteen tracks in all released by the group in this way. These tracks were then compiled on the album dot.com in 2000.

The program has continued on The Residents' website since, from 2017 to the present day, now on a much more frequent basis than monthly and including occasional videos, images and texts. A representative of Cherry Red Records has said that the group may eventually release a Free! Weird! collection as part of their pREServed series of reissues.[1]
