Modern Artillery (typeset as MODERN ARTillery) is the third album by the Australian Punk rock band the Living End. It was released twice for 28 October 2003 as an international release date and 2 March 2004 for a United States release date. It was the first album with Andy Strachan as drummer, since Travis Demsey had left after Roll On.

Who's Gonna Save Us? has been released as a single, and End of the World appears on the soundtrack to Tony Hawk's Underground 2. "Who's Gonna Save Us?" appeared in commercials for Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11.

This album has been released with the Copy Control protection system in some regions.

ARIA publicised that Modern ARTillery had officially achieved Platinum status in Australia in November 2007. All of their other album releases were simultaneously awarded a higher accreditation. Allmusic gave the album a 2.5 (link), and Rolling Stone rated it a 3 (link).
