13.13 is the second album by American artist Lydia Lunch, released in June 1982 by record label Ruby.
Trouser Press writes that the album "[revives] the grind-and-caterwaul of Teenage Jesus as filtered through Metal Box-era PiL, all deviant guitar and rolling rhythms. Like her previous stuff, it manages to be simultaneously fascinating and annoying." UK magazine Fact wrote that "sonically it comes over like a more droning, dissolute Stateside cousin of Siouxsie & the Banshees' Juju".
13.13 has divided critics. In its retrospective review, Fact qualified it as a "masterpiece".
