Live at the Inferno is a live album by the heavy metal band Raven. It was released in 1984 on Megaforce Records. The song "Live at the Inferno" first appeared on Raven's 1982 album Wiped Out. The album was intended to discourage the band's former label, Neat Records, from putting out a greatest hits compilation.[3] It was the band's last release before signing with Atlantic Records.

According to John Gallagher the title of the bass solo, "I.G.A.R.B.O.," stands for "I've got a rampant boner on."[4]
