The Tigers Have Spoken is a 2004 live album by Neko Case. The album was recorded at three live shows, one in Chicago and two in Toronto (at Lee's Palace and the Matador), in the spring of 2004. Guest musicians include The Sadies, Carolyn Mark, Kelly Hogan and Jon Rauhouse. The album was produced by Case and Darryl Neudorf.

The album consists of a combination of Case originals and cover songs such as The Shangri-Las "The Train From Kansas City" and Loretta Lynn's "Rated X". It marked a return to the alternative country sound which Case had moved away from after her first two solo albums.
