Lively is the fifth album by the North Carolina band Arrogance, released in 1981. It was recorded live in March 1981 around various clubs in North Carolina. Most of these songs were unreleased at the time of its release, although a few existed as singles or B-Sides. Some also existed as unreleased demos. In its initial release, a bonus "Dog Breath" EP was included, which featured six 1960s cover songs such as "Born to Be Wild." This would be their final record until the release of 2002's The 5'11" Record.
