No Guts...No Glory is the fifth studio album by American southern rock band Molly Hatchet, released in 1983 (see 1983 in music). Original vocalist Danny Joe Brown returns for this recording, with a new rhythm section composed of bassist Riff West (ex-White Witch) and drummer Barry Borden (ex-Mother's Finest). It is their only album not to feature an epic, fantasy themed cover.

The cover photo for the album was reportedly shot at Six Gun Territory, a now defunct theme park in Ocala, Florida.

The album contains the popular song, "Fall of the Peacemakers", which includes overt references to John Lennon. During the tour to support the album, guitarist Steve Holland left the band to be replaced by keyboard player John Galvin.

"What's It Gonna Take", written by Gary O'Connor, was also recorded by the band Fast Forward and appears on their 1984 album Living in Fiction.
