Never Say Die is a live video by heavy metal band Black Sabbath. It was recorded on the 10th Anniversary tour in June 1978, at London's Hammersmith Odeon.

In the UK it was one of the earliest music home videos, being released on both the Betamax and VHS formats, the latter being repackaged and reissued several times on VHS. It was also a Japanese laserdisc release and is now on DVD. The running-time is some 60 minutes (dropping some of the guitar solo and band improvisation, by comparison with ROIO from the same tour), this being the length of the commercial videotape cassettes. It would be unusual if the entire show had not been filmed, before subsequent editing, although the DVD release was the same as the videotape and laserdisc releases: it is unknown whether the full concert exists still on mastertape.
