The We Will Rock You Original London Cast Recording is a live album released in promotion of the award-winning West End Musical We Will Rock You (musical) in 2002. The album was recorded over two nights of the original West End production at the Dominion Theatre and was the first audio release of the musical. Both instrumental pieces (Ogre Battle and One Vision) are the original recordings made by Queen in 1973 and 1985 respectively. The recording misses several tracks that were present in the original production. These are: Bicycle Race, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Death On Two Legs (Dedicated to..., Fat Bottomed Girls and Headlong (Reprise).

In 2012, a special 2-CD 10th Anniversary edition was produced, consisting of the original album along with a CD of bonus material.
