Five Songs and a Cover is an EP released by the Foo Fighters in 2005. Released on November 20, 2005, it was exclusively distributed to Best Buy retail stores.

The E.P. 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 songs, and a 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 "D.O.A." but became a major part of the Foo Fighters acoustic shows, and will also appeared on their Greatest Hits album in 2009. It was played on most of their acoustic tour, on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and when they toured as an opener for Bob Dylan.
