Still Dangerous is a live album by Irish rock band Thin Lizzy. It was compiled from two live concerts by the band at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, just outside of Philadelphia, at 20 & 21 October 1977 during the tour in support of their Bad Reputation album. No overdubs were made to any tracks so the album is completely live.[4] The tracks "Cowboy Song", "The Boys Are Back in Town", "Massacre" and "Emerald" were previously released on the album Live and Dangerous. "Me And The Boys" is a different, and much longer, version that the one released as the live B-side to the "Rosalie" single

"Bad Reputation" and "Emerald" are bonus tracks made only available as downloads outside Japan. They are also available as a bonus 7" 45 RPM single on the U.S. vinyl version of the release. The live recordings of "Jailbreak", "Cowboy Song", and "The Boys are Back in Town" from this album are available as downloadable content as a Thin Lizzy track pack for the music video game Rock Band.[citation needed]

The album features the common live Thin Lizzy practice of running one song straight into some more popular hit, typically using the ending note of one as the starting note of the next, notably with "Cowboy Song" which finishes with the first note of "The Boys Are Back in Town" and "Soldier of Fortune" which leads directly into "Jailbreak". This live version of "The Boys Are Back in Town" is used over the end credits of the film The Expendables (rather than the more well-known studio version from Jailbreak).[citation needed]
