Raising Hell is a 1986 (see 1986 in music) album by old school rappers Run-D.M.C.. Their breakthrough album, Raising Hell set new standards for what was possible for a hip hop group, going triple-platinum and receiving critical attention from quarters that had previously ignored hip hop as a silly fad that would soon disappear.

Most important of the tracks on Raising Hell is the collaboration with Aerosmith, "Walk This Way". While the song was not the first fusion of rock and hip hop, it was the first one to sell well. Run-D.M.C.'s degree of penetration into mainstream markets was unprecedented for a hip hop act.

Raising Hell peaked at #1 on Billboard's R&B/Hip Hop Album chart, and at #6 on the Billboard 200.
