"Rust Never Sleeps" is a 1979 album by Neil Young and Crazy Horse (see 1979 in music). The bulk of the album was recorded live at San Francisco's Cow Palace, with overdubs added. Audience noise is removed as much as possible, although they are clearly audible at certain points, most noticeably on the opening and closing songs. The album is half acoustic and half electric, opening and closing with different versions of the same song.

Two songs from the album were not recorded live: "Sail Away" was recorded without Crazy Horse during or after the "Comes a Time" recording sessions, cite web |url= |title=HyperRust chronology |accessdate=2008-05-07 ] and "Pocahontas" had been recorded solo around 1975.

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 Rust-Oleum paint, and was suggested by Mark Mothersbaugh of the New Wave band Devo. RS500|350
