In Your Honor is the fifth studio album by Foo Fighters, released on June 14, 2005 on BMG. It is the band's second-best-selling album in the United States behind 1997's The Colour and The Shape. It consists of two discs. All of the tracks on the second disc are acoustic. Much of the album's theme and content came after Dave Grohl spent time on the campaign trail with John Kerry during the 2004 presidential election. "We'd pull in to small towns, and thousands of people would come to be rescued by this man," said Grohl. "It's not a political record, but what I saw inspired me."

Grohl has stated that the song "Friend of a Friend" was written about himself and his former Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain during the time they shared an apartment together in 1990. Grohl also recorded the song under the pseudonym 'Late!', which was released on Pocketwatch. Despite the sombre tone of the song, it was written before Cobain's death in 1994.

In Your Honor features a number of special guests on its second, mellower disc, including Norah Jones, John Paul Jones (of Led Zeppelin fame) and Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age. Dave Grohl has described John Paul Jones' guest appearance as the "second-greatest thing to happen to me in my life."
