"Renegade" was the eleventh studio album by Irish band Thin Lizzy, released in 1981 (see 1981 in music). Though not his first appearance, this was the first album in which keyboard player Darren Wharton was credited as a permanent member, becoming the fifth member of the line-up. As such, he made a contribution as a song-writer on the opening track "Angel of Death". However, even though he had officially joined the band, his picture was omitted from the album sleeve.

It was also their last album with guitarist Snowy White. By his own admission, White was more suited to playing blues than heavy rock and he quit by mutual agreement the following year. He went on to have a minor hit single with "Bird Of Paradise" in 1983.
