Cocked & Loaded is the second album from the band L.A. Guns, and their first to reach gold certification. The album includes the hit "The Ballad of Jayne".

This was the first L.A. Guns album on which Steve Riley actually played drums. Although he was in the band photo and listed as a band member in the liner notes of the band's first album, L.A. Guns (because by then he was an official member of the band), Nickey "Beat" Alexander played drums on that album.

The album features guest appearances by Cheap Trick members Robin Zander and Rick Nielsen. In 2006, Zander and Nielsen would also appear on the similarly titled Cocked and Loaded by the Revolting Cocks.
