25 & Alive: Live at Brixton Academy is the seventh live album by the band Motörhead, recorded at their 25th anniversary concert on 22 October 2000, at the Brixton Academy in London, but released on CD in 2003 on Steamhammer, their second live album and seventh album released with the label.[2] It was the first live album under distribution with Sanctuary Records and their subsidiary Metal-Is for North America and certain territories.

The concert was filmed and has an accompanying live DVD called 25 & Alive Boneshaker, both of which are exactly the same recordings, but it was not released until 2005 due to mastering problems.[3]

Various guests made appearances on the night; "Fast" Eddie Clarke (ex-Motörhead), Queen's Brian May, Todd Campbell (Phil's son), Paul Inder (Lemmy's son), Whitfield Crane (ex-Ugly Kid Joe), Doro Pesch (ex-Warlock) and Ace (Skunk Anansie).
