The Youth Are Getting Restless is a live album from hardcore punk and reggae pioneers Bad Brains, recorded live at the Paradiso (Amsterdam) Theater in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in 1987 by the VPRO. The show was part of the band's I Against I tour. It remains one of the group's best selling albums.

The album captures Bad Brains in concert at the height of their commercial and critical peak, featuring a diverse mix of violent hardcore punk, mellow reggae, funk, and heavy metal. Two of the reggae tracks are cover songs: Dennis Brown's "Revolution," and a rearranged medley of the Rolling Stones's "She's a Rainbow" and The Beatles's "Day Tripper".
