Cheap Trick at Budokan is a live album by American rock band Cheap Trick, released in October 1978 via Epic Records.

Cheap Trick found early success in Japan, and capitalized on this popularity by recording Cheap Trick at Budokan in Tokyo on 28 and 30 April 1978, with an audience of 12,000 screaming Japanese fans nearly drowning out the band at times. The album was intended for release only in Japan but with strong airplay of the promotional album From Tokyo to You, an estimated 30,000 import copies were sold in the United States and the album was released domestically in February 1979. The album also introduced two previously unreleased original songs, "Lookout" and "Need Your Love".

In the U.S., the album peaked at number four on the Billboard 200 and became the group's best selling album with over three million copies sold. It also ranked number 13 on Billboard's Top Pop Albums of 1979 year-end chart. The single "I Want You to Want Me" reached number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The second single, a cover of Fats Domino's "Ain't That a Shame" also charted, reaching number 35.  Cheap Trick at Budokan was certified triple Platinum in 1986 by the RIAA.

In Canada, it went to number one, hitting the top of the RPM 100 Albums chart on August 11 of the same year.  By November 1979, it had achieved quintuple platinum status (500,000 units) in that country.

It was ranked number 426 in Rolling Stone magazine's list of "the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time".

An expanded version of the original album was released in 1998 as At Budokan: The Complete Concert, remastered and fully restored to include all the concert tracks left off the original album. This version of the album was performed in full at the Metro in Chicago on April 30, 1998, to coincide with the Complete Concert CD release.

This is a Limited Edition 2016 Record Store Day Release, Available on Vinyl for the First Time, a Double Album 2LP Records on 150 Gram Audiophile Vinyl housed in a Gatefold Sleeve, Limited to 5,000 Copies, a US pressing made in France.
