"In the Meantime" is a song by English alternative rock band Spacehog, from their debut album Resident Alien. It hit the top of the U.S. Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. It samples the Penguin Cafe Orchestra song "Telephone and Rubber Band".

The song features as a playable track in Guitar Hero 5 (having been re-recorded by the band) and Rock Band 3 (in its original version present in Resident Alien). Also, mashup artist Girl Talk layered "In the Meantime" over the Terror Squad hip-hop song, "Lean Back" in his album All Day.
