Live & Loud is a live album recorded by then former Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne, released on 28 June 1993. At the time, it was to be Osbourne's final album following Osbourne's final tour before retiring, aptly titled "No More Tours". The track "Black Sabbath" featured the original line-up of Black Sabbath, the members of which were invited to join Ozzy as guest stars for the Costa Mesa Reunion shows.

In addition to the standard release in a 'fat-boy' 2CD case, the album was released as a digipak with a metal 'speaker grille' cover and included tattoos, as well as the booklet; the official release was preceded by a single CD sampler issued as a promotional item. A DVD of Live & Loud was also issued, one of the very first music compilation released in that format. The DVD is a compilation of live footage from several shows rather than a single concert: this is evident as Osbourne can be seen both shirtless and wearing different clothes during the same song, while guitarist Zakk Wylde can be seen playing up to three different guitars in the same song.[2]

The album, along with The Ultimate Sin and Just Say Ozzy, has since been deleted from Ozzy's catalog and was not remastered and reissued along with the rest of Ozzy's albums in 2002. This is mainly due to a continuing legal struggle with bassist/songwriter Phil Soussan over the song "Shot in the Dark", present in the three albums. Despite this, the live track "I Don't Want to Change the World" appeared on "The Ozzman Cometh" and The Essential Ozzy Osbourne compilations. Copies of the 1995 remastered CDs are still available on Amazon.com.

Osbourne won a Grammy Award for the version of "I Don't Want to Change the World" included in this album.[3]
