This is the title track of Christian rock band Hawk Nelson's fourth studio album. The band's bass player bassist Daniel Biro explained: "Live Life Loud is really about encouraging our fans to do just that. To live your life loud, to embrace all that life brings your way and experience every moment of it to the fullest extent. This is the message we want our fans to come away with after they hear the album."
The dog on the album cover is called Murphy and belongs to the band's vocalist Jason Dunn.
