In Case You Didn’t Feel Like Showing Up (Live) is a seminal live recording by the American industrial metal band Ministry, released in 1990.

The live album is noted for its ferocious execution and impeccable production, which manages to capture the chaotic and powerful atmosphere of a Ministry concert. The setlist includes explosive renditions of tracks such as “Thieves,” “Burning Inside,” and “Stigmata,” which are delivered with an even greater intensity than their studio versions.

These include Nivek Ogre from Skinny Puppy, who contributed vocals, and Jello Biafra from Dead Kennedys, who provided spoken word and additional vocals.

The album received widespread acclaim for capturing the aggressive spirit and innovation of Ministry’s live performances. It is often cited by fans and critics alike as one of the best live albums in the industrial metal genre, serving as a perfect introduction to Ministry’s live sound for those who had never seen the band perform.
