"The Last in Line" was the third single released by heavy metal band Dio, appearing on their 1984 LP of the same name. Unlike the band's first two singles, this song was not released as a single in the UK, but rather in The Netherlands and Spain. There is also an alternate version in the Netherlands sold only at the Pinkpop '84 festival on June 11, 1984. The sleeve of this release was the same as the band's previous single, Rainbow in the Dark, with the Pinkpop logo in the corner.

Cover versions

The song was covered by Tenacious D for the Ronnie James Dio: This Is Your Life - Tribute and won the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance in 2015.

Downstait made a cover of the song that features Sahaj Ticotin, for their album "With You In Mind" as tribute to Ronnie James Dio after his passing.
