If Life Were a Result, We'd All Be Dead is the fifth and final full-length album released by the North Vancouver punk band d.b.s. It was released by Crap Records in February 2000. Although their final full-length, the songs on this album were actually recorded in 1997, before their previous album.[2] The songs were intended to be released on various singles, but this plan never came to fruition.[2]

The band's music on this album has been likened to Lifetime and Jawbreaker, marking an "awkward transition" from the political lyrics of I Is for Insignificant to the more personal lyrics of Some Boys Got It, Most Men Don't.[5]
