"Always" is the first single off the album Back into Your System by alternative metal band Saliva. It made it to #1 on the Modern Rock Tracks for one week in February 2003,[1] and has been Saliva's most successful hit.

The music video for "Always" focuses on a young man who appears to be haunted by a woman of his past, sporadically appearing throughout town. The video ends with the man, enraged with emotion, destroying a telephone booth before collapsing to the ground. MTV requested an edit of the lyrics in the final verse. The line "the pistol shaking in my hand, and all I can hear is the sound" was edited to replace the word "pistol" with "anger" in the video version.[2] Also, this song was played on Music Choice Television.

"Always" was the theme song for WWE's Survivor Series Pay-per-view in November 2002.[3]

The song is also featured in the music video game Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock as a downloadable content song.
