As Good as Dead is the second studio album by American rock band Local H. It was released on April 16, 1996 by Island Records.

A concept album, As Good as Dead is about dead-end, small-town life based on the band's origins in Zion, Illinois.[3] The album's title comes from a line in the song "Eddie Vedder." Some prints of the album received a Parental Advisory sticker, due to the use of profanity in the song "High-Fiving MF" and others.

Four singles were released from the album: "Bound for the Floor," "High-Fiving MF," "Eddie Vedder" and "Fritz's Corner." The album was certified gold in the United States.
