Greatest Hits Live (Rip It to Shreds) is a live album by the original members of The Animals. It was released in 1984.


The album documents the 1983 concert tour that accompanied the second, and last, reunion attempt of the original group.

While approximately two-thirds of the tour's shows were taken from Ark, the 1983 reunion album, and one-third were drawn from the line-up's original 1960s recordings, Greatest Hits Live focuses almost exclusively on the older material.
