:"For the "Doctor Who" novel, see Head Games (Doctor Who). There is also a defunct computer game company called Head Games, which was later acquired by Activision Value."

"Head Games" is the third studio album by American rock band Foreigner, released in 1979. The album charted at #5 on the Billboard 200 chart, and has sold over five million copies in the US alone. It is perhaps as famous (or infamous) for its extremely lurid album cover, depicting a young, scantily clad girl in a filthy men's room, as it is for its music. The title track and "Dirty White Boy" were the album's big hits, peaking at #14 and #12, respectively.

Miscellaneous

*In Aqua Teen Hunger Force, "Head Games" is one of the abilities of the "Foreigner Belt". This ability allows the wearer to transform their victim's head into a game, possibly limited to Connect Four.
*Another Aqua Teen Hunger Force-related reference is seen on [http://www.adultswim.com adultswim.com] ; one of the games featured on the website is titled "Head Games". The game features the character Meatwad helping Carl through numerous levels in order to get his head back onto his body (hence the name, Head Games).
*The song "Dirty White Boy" from the album was used as the season two theme song for the show Dirty Jobs.
