Deftones release White Pony

White Pony is the third studio album by American alternative metal band Deftones.

Released in 2000, it marks a significant growth in the band's sound, incorporating New Wave and shoegaze influences with the alternative metal edge the group had become known for. To this end, it is generally regarded by fans and critics alike as their most mature outing and is also their highest-selling album to date.

The album features three successful singles as well as the 2001 Grammy Award-winning track for Best Metal Performance, "Elite."
