Live is a live album from punk rock band Generation X.[1] Recorded on December 13, 1980 at Hatfield Polytechnic,[2][3] the soundboard tapes remained unreleased and presumed lost forever until fortuitously discovered by guitarist James Stevenson almost twenty-five years later. The album features the band playing a series of cover versions, several of which are featured for the very first time on record.
