To Live and Die in L.A. is the third studio album by English new wave band Wang Chung. It was released on 30 September 1985 by Geffen and is their first recorded as a duo of lead singer Jack Hues and bassist Nick Feldman following the departure of drummer Darren Costin. The album served as the soundtrack for the 1985 film To Live and Die in L.A, directed by William Friedkin. Instead of following up the success that Points on the Curve had provided them, the band switched gears to produce an original motion picture soundtrack. The switch allowed for them to experiment with different styles of music from the more conventional pop music found on their previous album.

The album peaked at No. 85 on the US Billboard 200 but it failed to chart in their home country. The albums title track, "To Live and Die in L.A.", was released as the first single from the album and it peaked at No. 41 on the US Billboard Hot 100. "Wake Up, Stop Dreaming" was the second single to be released from the album but it failed to chart.

In 1996, Geffen Goldline re-released the album on CD but all CD versions of the album have remained out-of-print since. Universal Music Enterprises re-released the album on vinyl in 2015.
