Head for the Door is the third studio album from the U.S. alternative rock band The Exies. It was released on November 30, 2004.

"Ugly" would prove to be the album's single and found notable airplay upon release. The song's chorus utilizes an easily recognizable power chord structure previously heard in Saliva's hit single, "Always", released not long prior to "Ugly."

"Ugly" was also used as the theme song for WWE Survivor Series 2004.

"Hey You" was included in Guitar Hero, and would later appear in Guitar Hero: Smash Hits. "Slow Drain" was featured in NFL Street 2. It is on Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics

"What You Deserve" is included in the soundtrack of Juiced.
