Houston: We Have a Drinking Problem is the second studio album by Bad Astronaut, released in 2002 on the Honest Don's independent record label. The title alludes to the statement "Houston, we have a problem" somewhat inaccurately attributed to astronaut Jim Lovell aboard the Apollo 13 spacecraft when an explosion in the Service Module endangered the crew. The track "Our Greatest Year" features a harmonica solo by John Popper of Blues Traveler fame.

The album features two covers. "Break Your Frame" is originally performed by Armchair Martian, and "Solar Sister" is originally performed by The Posies.
