Mmhmm (also MMHMM, MmHmm, and mmhmm) is the fourth full-length album by Christian rock band Relient K, released in November 2004. This album is especially notable for two reasons: First, it marked their debut on Capitol; and second, it was Brian Pittman's last CD with the band. In addition to being released on Capitol and Gotee, Mmhmm was re-released on vinyl on Mono Vs Stereo. The re-release includes a song originally from Apathetic EP, called "Apathetic Way to Be". The singles "Be My Escape" and "Who I Am Hates Who I've Been", both found on Mmhmm, boosted Relient K's mainstream popularity. Although the song "High of 75" was never released to mainstream markets, it spent fifteen consecutive weeks in the CCM top ten.

Mmhmm earned the group a Canadian Juno Award nomination for Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year in 2006. In 2005, Mmhmm was certified Gold by the RIAA for sales in excess of 500,000 units in the United States. It has sold over 800,000 copies in the United States.

Mmhmm is the fourth album made by Relient k. It has other spellings because it's a strange word. It is different to the bands previous albums, because it's heavier but also softer at times with the music. It marks the time where the band became more serious, using fewer Joke songs than before.

Two things should be noted here: It was their first album on their record label Capitol Records. It was also the last CD which Brian Pitman (Relient k bassist) recorded with the band.

The album was released again, with a new song which was first found on an EP. In 2005, the album was given gold status, because it had sold half a million copies in America. The album had a few singles which were played only on Christian radio such as High of 75 and I so hate consequences
