Live is a live album from punk rock band Generation X. Recorded on an unspecified date in 1980 at Hatfield Polytechnic, the soundboard tapes remained unreleased and presumed lost forever until fortuitously discovered by guitarist James Stevenson almost twenty-five years later. The album features the band playing a series of cover versions, several of which are featured for the very first time on record.
