"Let's Go!" is a single by Wang Chung. Although the song was on their 1986 album, Mosaic, it didn't get released as a single until January, 1987. The single was a hit for Wang Chung in the United States, and it provided the band with their second (and so far, last) top-10 hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in April 1987, peaking at #9. The single also formed the basis for a music video. It also hit #9 on the Canada RPM Top 100 Singles chart.

Jack Hues sings the verses of the song, and Nick Feldman sings the bridge. Both sing the chorus.
