"Big Log" is a song by Robert Plant from his album The Principle of Moments, released in 1983. It was the first single from the album and became his first Top 40 solo hit, peaking at number 11 on the UK Singles Chart and number 20 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The song also reached number six on the Billboard Top Tracks chart.

Bassist Viktor Krauss recorded a cover of "Big Log" on his 2004 album "Far From Enough". Krauss's sister Alison, who would record the album Raising Sand with Plant three years later, sang lead vocals on the track.

The song is featured in the 2013 video game Grand Theft Auto V on the in-game radio station Los Santos Rock Radio.
