Chris Shiflett & the Dead Peasants is the debut self-titled album from Chris Shiflett, lead guitarist of Foo Fighters. The Dead Peasants are his second side project, following Jackson United, and the backing band is composed of different musicians than that of Jackson United.

The album is a departure from his rock/punk background, and is influenced by country, rockabilly, and Americana.

All songs feature Shiflett as lead vocalist and guitarist. All songs are also written by him, with the exception of "Burning Lights", a cover of a song performed by Joe Strummer in a cameo in the 1990 film, I Hired a Contract Killer.
