Thunder Down Under is the a live album by the San Diego, California rock band Hot Snakes, released in 2006 by Swami Records. It was recorded during the band's Spring 2005 tour of Australia. The entire album was recorded live on May 10, 2005 in the studios of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation for use on the radio station Triple J, and features songs from all three of the band's studio albums.

During this tour the band members had already decided that they would break up on their return to the United States, and made this announcement on their return the following month. Thunder Down Under was released posthumously the following year on guitarist John Reis' Swami Records label. Singer/guitarist Rick Froberg designed the album's artwork while working as a visual artist and illustrator in New York City.
