Electra 2000 is the second studio album by the Champaign, Illinois post-hardcore band Hum. Originally released in 1993 by 12 Inch Records, the first run was limited to 1,000 copies had the band's name printed in black lettering. The album also included "Monty Python Organ Grinder", an instrumental Monty Python song included as a secret track. The second release contains the same track listing as the first, but slightly different cover art, with red lettering rather than black. The album was released for a third time in 1997 by Martians Go Home and contains "Diffuse" as the final track. The song was recorded during the Electra 2000 sessions, but was initially released on the various artists compilation Feast of the Sybarites.


A music video was produced for "Iron Clad Lou".
