Toyah! Toyah! Toyah! is a live album recorded by Toyah on 17 June 1980 at the Lafayette Club in Wolverhampton. The concert was also filmed by ATV as part of a TV documentary about the band and its eponymous singer.

The album saw its first CD release in 1990 on the Great Expectations label. A new remastered reissue Toyah! Toyah! Toyah! (Special Edition) was released on 30 October 2006 via Cherry Red Records. This expanded edition features extra live tracks from 1980 and from the 1982 The Changeling tour. The latter tracks include those cut from the abridged CD release of Warrior Rock: Toyah on Tour - albeit taken from a different concert of the same tour recorded for "Warrior Rock". Six of the eight bonus tracks are previously unreleased.

The new edition includes an introductory note from Toyah Willcox and a sleevenote by Craig Astley, in addition to rare live photographs.
