Final Damnation is a live album by The Damned. The album was recorded at The Town & Country Club in London on 13 June 1988. It was originally released in August 1989, and was later re-released on DVD.[1]

It was recorded at a time the band were in a chaotic state of no record contract after being dropped by their only major label contract, MCA. Various lineups based on this show would tour until releasing the "Fun Factory" single.[2]
