Love, Peace & Money (also Love Peace & Money; Japanese 愛、平和、そして金) is the first English-language album by the German punk band Die Toten Hosen (ディ・トーテン・ホゼン ["di tooten hoozen"] in katakana; DTH), not counting the cover album Learning English, Lesson One. It was intended for the Japanese market. Most of the songs are just English versions of other DTH songs.

For the cover, the idea of Reich & sexy was copied. However, the band was unable to find enough Japanese women willing to undress for the cover, so some of the women are just made to look Japanese.[1]

The reason behind the album was that since the band was also famous outside German speaking countries, they wanted everybody to understand what they have to say. They were especially inspired by Argentinian fans, of whom some have started learning German just to understand DTH's lyrics.[2]
