Alive and Well is the ninth studio album by heavy metal band Quiet Riot. It was recorded following a reunion of the classic 80's Quiet Riot lineup of Kevin DuBrow, Rudy Sarzo, Carlos Cavazo, and Frankie Banali. It featured eight new songs alongside updated versions of six of their classics, including "Cum On Feel The Noize", "Metal Health" and "Mama Weer All Crazee Now", as well as a cover of "Highway to Hell" by AC/DC. This track had previously been released on the AC/DC tribute album Thunderstruck.

The DuBrow/Perris penned "Slam Dunk" was first recorded in 1991 by Pretty Boy Floyd for the movie Switch.
