Whatever Happened to P.J. Soles is an album by the alternative rock band Local H. It was released on April 6, 2004 on Studio E Records. On July 16, 2007 it received an Australian release doubled with Alive '05. "Hey Rita" and "California Songs" have become staples at many of Local H's live performances.

The album title references P.J. Soles, an American actress, known for her roles in John Carpenter's 1978 horror film Halloween, the 1979 musical comedy Rock N Roll High School, and Ivan Reitman's 1981 comedy Stripes. The song "(Whatever Happened To) P.J. Soles" was covered by late 1990s New York punk band Latex Generation.[3] The song was featured on their 7" release of the same name.[4]
