Batten the Hatches is the debut album by American singer-songwriter Jenny Owen Youngs. Originally self-released in 2005 by Youngs, it was reissued with the bonus track "Drinking Song" two years later by the Nettwerk label. The track "Fuck Was I" was used in the first episode of the second season of the Showtime series Weeds, to illustrate a scene in which main character Nancy Botwin, a part-time marijuana dealer, discovers that her new lover is in fact a DEA agent. This appearance reportedly led to sales of the album increasing from between five and ten per week to between twenty and thirty per day. The album was listed as one of Guardian Unlimited's "Greatest Albums You've Never Heard" in a feature in November 2006.
