"In My Head" is the second single released by the rock group Queens of the Stone Age on June 27, 2005, from their fourth album Lullabies to Paralyze. "In My Head" originally appeared on Desert Sessions vols. 9 & 10 in 2003, where it was named "In My Head...Or Something." The song appears in the end credits during the Entourage episode "The Release" and was also featured in the video game Need for Speed: Underground 2 and in the Unreleased beta of Need For Speed: Carbon. The song is available as downloadable content for Rock Band 3.

The video for the song was later castigated by guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen:

...[I]t just happened to be the only time we listened to the record label and it was such a fuck up on our part. The video we ended up with for that song is so lame! It was three of us against a green screen with effects added later. It was like a fucking Gap commercial. It was terrible. Just terrible. We were on the road so we weren't in control of it.
