Waking the Dead is the eighth L.A. Guns album. It had been the last album with band founder Tracii Guns, before he reunited with the band in 2017. It is also the first with bass guitarist Adam Hamilton.

The album includes "OK, Let's Roll" - dedicated to Todd Beamer and those who rushed the cockpit of Flight 93 during the events of September 11, 2001 attacks.

Though slated to be included, the Japanese edition was never officially released, leaving "Call of the Wild" unavailable.

Ultimate L.A. Guns is a greatest hits album by L.A. Guns, a hard rock band from Los Angeles, California that came to prominence in the 1980s. Much like the band's earlier "compilation" Greatest Hits and Black Beauties, this compilation consists of re-recorded versions of the band's hits, not the original versions.
