Still Climbing is the fourth studio album by American rock band Cinderella, released in 1994 by Mercury Records. Musically, it consists of more gritty blues-rock,[1] following in the footsteps of their previous effort, Heartbreak Station. The release of Still Climbing was delayed following the Heartbreak Station tour due to Tom Keifer losing his voice in 1991. As of 2017, it remains the band's most recent album.

Due to a new MTV policy, the album was not mentioned at the channel. The record company barely promoted it in order to test different markets,[1] a pattern that would continue all throughout the rest of the 1990s and 2000s.

While Cinderella's first three albums all went platinum, the domination of grunge and alternative rock in the mid-1990s was so strong that it forced Still Climbing to chart at a lowly #178 and drop out after a mere few weeks,[1] despite featuring the minor hits "Bad Attitude Shuffle" (which was released as a single), "Hard to Find the Words", and "Hot & Bothered" from Wayne's World. On a side note, the track "Talk Is Cheap" first appeared during a Cinderella show in 1987, though the version on this album is longer than the original, being slower in vocals. In addition, "Freewheelin" was an older song that had been written and demoed by the band in 1985, prior to the recording of their first album.
