Never Hear the End of It, released on September 19, 2006 is the eighth album by Canadian rock band Sloan. The record's first single was "Who Taught You to Live Like That?", while "Ill-Placed Trust" was launched as a second single in November. The album debuted at #29 on the Canadian Albums Chart[5] and peaked at #48 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart,[6] making it the band's first album to chart in the U.S.

The CD release of the album included all 30 songs contained on a single disc, while vinyl pressings were issued as a double LP. At 76 minutes and 26 seconds, it boasts the longest running time of Sloan's studio albums--exceeded only by the 4 Nights at the Palais Royale live double album.

A video for the track "I've Gotta Try" was also released and charted on Canada's MuchMoreMusic.

The song "Flying High Again" was used in a 2007 episode of America's Funniest Home Videos in a montage of hang gliding accidents.
