"Honkin' on Bobo" is the fourteenth studio album by American hard rock band Aerosmith, released in 2004 (see 2004 in music). The album includes eleven covers and one original track titled "The Grind". The limited edition version includes a harmonica keychain. The sound reflects Aerosmith's blues-based influences and showcases a rawer sound (reminiscent of their 1970s heyday) compared to their recent commercial efforts and was also produced by Jack Douglas, who was Aerosmith's producer on a vast majority of their 1970s' output.

Reaching # 5 on The Billboard 200, "Honkin' on Bobo" has sold 590,000 units in the U.S. as of October 2006, having been certified gold.
