“If I Die Tomorrow” is a song by the American hard rock band Mötley Crüe released on their 2005 compilation album Red, White & Crüe. The song was one of the new songs recorded by Mötley Crüe for the album.

Originally written by the Canadian pop punk band Simple Plan, “If I Die Tomorrow” was left off their 2004 album Still Not Getting Any… as the band didn’t feel that it fit in with the rest of the album. After finishing work with Simple Plan, producer Bob Rock brought the song to Mötley Crüe knowing that they were looking to record new material to include on their new compilation album. After hearing the song, Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx made some lyrical and music changes to it before the band recorded it.

A video was made to promote the single, which featured each one of the band members, which includes Sixx, vocalist Vince Neil, drummer Tommy Lee and guitarist Mick Mars each individually in a nightmarish scene from his past. Sixx’s scene shows him overdosing on heroin, Neil killing his friend, Razzle from Hanoi Rocks, Mars in a hospital bed, battling Ankylosing spondylitis, and Lee, in prison.

Singer, Vince Neil planned to release a solo single at the same time, noting that his was “less in your face” and “more soulful.” However, this never came to pass.

A live version of the song appears on the band’s 2006 album, Carnival of Sins Live.
