Viva is the second and most successful album of Klaus Dinger's (of Neu! fame) band La Düsseldorf. It has both "Rheinita", which was their most successful single, and "Cha Cha 2000", which has become their most famous song.

Different mixes/edits of "Rheinita" and "Viva" were released as a single; the single version of "Viva" is slightly longer and has a fadeout, the album version segues into "White Overalls". "Vögel" (Birds, in German) is a minute and a half of bird noises. All songs are written by Klaus Dinger.
