Dying for the World is the tenth album by W.A.S.P., released in 2002 (see 2002 in music). "Dying For The World" was Blackie Lawless' dedication to all those who perished in the attacks of the 9/11 events, especially heard on the 'Hallowed Ground' track.

The album was written and recorded in less than 12 months. This is very unusual as Blackie Lawless is a perfectionist, normally taking 2 years or more to finish an album and have it recorded.[citation needed]
