Five Songs and a Cover (A.K.A. 4 Stars) is an EP released by the Foo Fighters in 2005. Released on November 20, 2005, it was exclusively distributed to Best Buy retail stores.[1]

The EP is a collection of b-sides that come from the band's 2005 album, In Your Honor. The title simply refers to the fact that it contains five original songs and one cover song. The cover song is of Cream's song, "I Feel Free", which features drummer Taylor Hawkins on vocals, and lead vocalist Dave Grohl providing the drums. One song on the album, "Skin and Bones" was released as a b-side to "DOA" but became a major part of the Foo Fighters acoustic shows.
