"The Moan" is a single by the American blues-rock duo The Black Keys, first released on 7" vinyl in 2002 (ALIVE0047-1), and on CD in 2004 (ALIVE0047-2). The CD is their last release for Alive Records, as the band switched to Fat Possum Records to publish their LP Thickfreakness the previous year.

The original cut of "Have Love Will Travel", which is a Sonics through Richard Berry cover, was first released on Thickfreakness. "Heavy Soul (Alternate)" differs from the version released on The Big Come Up. "No Fun" is a Stooges cover.

The 7" vinyl single has been pressed on several different colors (black, pink, red, purple and most recently turquoise). "The Moan" got its name from time spent working on the N25 South Ringroad in Cork under the tutelage of Engineering Superstar Jimmy "The Moan" Kelly.[citation needed]
