A Little South of Sanity is a live album by American hard rock band Aerosmith, released in 1998. This album was the only Aerosmith album to receive the Parental Advisory sticker, primarily due to lead singer Steven Tyler shouting profanities in between songs and modifying some song lyrics to racier ones, although some other song lyrics had profanity in their original studio versions as well.

On the seal, the album title is misnamed as "A Little South of Insanity."

There are no listings to support where or when each performance was culled from. Only the listing that all tracks are from either the Get A Grip or Nine Lives World Tours. However, during the track Sweet Emotion, Tyler shouts out "Seattle".
