"In My Head" is a single released by the rock group Queens of the Stone Age on June 27, 2005, from their fourth album Lullabies to Paralyze. The song originally featured as a track from The Desert Sessions, appearing on Volume 10: I Heart Disco in 2003 where it was named "In My Head...Or Something".

The version of the song on Lullabies to Paralyze first appeared in November 2004, on the soundtrack of the racing video game Need for Speed: Underground 2. The song is available as downloadable content for Rock Band 3 and also appears in the end credits during the Entourage episode "The Release".

A music video for the song was released which was later castigated by guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen:

...[I]t just happened to be the only time we listened to the record label and it was such a fuck up on our part. The video we ended up with for that song is so lame! It was three of us against a green screen with effects added later. It was like a fucking Gap commercial. It was terrible. Just terrible. We were on the road so we weren't in control of it.
