Rachel Haden (born 1971-10-11 in New York City) is an American musician and one of the triplet daughters of jazz bassist Charlie Haden.

In the early 1990s, Haden played bass guitar for That Dog, a band that also included her sister Petra. Her sister Tanya also contributed cello on several That Dog recordings, but did not tour as an official member of the band. Around this time Haden also played drums and performed backup vocals for Beck on the songs Totally Confused and Steve Threw Up. She also played drums for Beck's "Pink Noise (Rock Me Amadeus)".

Later, Haden became one of the four early members of the band the Rentals, along with Rod Cervera and Weezer's Patrick Wilson and Matt Sharp. In 1996, she performed lead vocals on the Weezer song "I Just Threw Out the Love of My Dreams", originally written for the abandoned Songs from the Black Hole album. Haden was Rivers Cuomo's choice to play the "good girl" character, Laurel.

In 1999, Haden contributed a cover of the song "Poems, Prayers, and Promises" to the album A Tribute to John Denver. Around this same time, she played bass and performed vocals as a member of The Martinis, along with Pixies guitarist Joey Santiago and his wife Linda Mallari. In 1999 Haden also contributed backing vocals on "Snoother" by The For Carnation on their eponymous album.

In 2001, Haden toured as a backup singer and keyboardist for Jimmy Eat World and is credited on their album Bleed American released that same year. Rachel was responsible for keyboards, percussion, backing vocals (2001–2002; also present on some Bleed American songs). [1] [2]
