Rust Never Sleeps is a 1979 album by Neil Young and Crazy Horse. The album was recorded live, with overdubs later added. It is half acoustic and half electric, and the audience track was removed, although the audience is still clearly audible at certain points, most noticeably at the end. Though a live album, it consists entirely of new material.
Young also released a film version of the album under the same title. Later on in 1979, Young and Crazy Horse released the album Live Rust, a compilation of older classics interweaving within the Rust Never Sleeps track list. The title is borrowed from the slogan for Rustoleum paint, and was suggested by Mark Mothersbaugh of the New Wave band Devo. In 2003, the album was ranked number 350 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
