Guns, God and Government is the third live video album by American rock band Marilyn Manson, released on October 29, 2002 on the formats VHS, DVD and UMD, documenting the tour of the same name. The DVD contains live performances that switch between visuals of various shows from United States, Japan, Russia, and Europe while maintaining a single consistent music track.

On November 16, 2009, the live performance of the October 8, 2001 concert in Los Angeles, California was released in Blu-ray disc format. The re-release documents the concert in full instead of a montage of live performances as previously released in the 2002 DVD version. "The Death Song" was removed from this edition since it wasn't shown on the pay-per-view telecast when originally premiered.

Both releases contain additional content in the form of a short film titled "The Death Parade" that was mixed by Rogers Masson and Marilyn Manson. It features a backstage look at the band's tour including cameos from such artists as Ozzy Osbourne, Joey Jordison and Eminem.
