"The One" is a song by the Foo Fighters, released as a single in 2002. It appeared on the moviesoundtrack album for Orange County. The retail single itself was only released in Australia. However, it was made available by import in the US and UK. Promotional singles for radio airplay were sent out to a number of countries including Canada, the UK and the US. The song was also released as a b-side to the CD2 version of the single "All My Life" and in the Limited Edition Bonus DVD of certain copies of One by One. In the UK, 6 different versions of the single were released - 3"cd, cd, mini disc, cassette, 12" vinyl and 7" vinyl. There was, however, only one copy made of each of these official releases and they were give away as prizes. As such they have become the most highly sought after Foo Fighters collectibles.
When it aired on MTV, the chorus was slightly altered. The unedited version goes, "You're not the one, but you're the only one who can make me feel like this / You're not the one, but you're the only one who can make me feel like shit!" The edited version simply repeats the first line twice so as to avoid the climactic expletive.
