Let It Happen is a B-sides and rarities album released in 1998 by the band MxPx on Tooth and Nail Records. The songs on this compilation originally appeared on the 17 7", Punk Rawk Show 7", Small Town Minds 7", North American Punk Series Vol. 4 split 7" with the McCrackins, I'm Your Biggest Fan vol. 1 compilation, On the Cover double 10", Teenage Politics LP 12", Move to Bremerton EP, and Life In General Pre-Release Teaser. Four of the songs had not been previously released: "Important Enough Not to Mention," "Honest Answers," "Late Last Night," "Biased Bigotry." The sound clip at the beginning of this version of "Chick Magnet" is from the film Mallrats. The songs were all originally produced by either Steve Kravac, Bob Moon, or Aaron Sprinkle, and Steve Kravac contributed remixes for many of the tracks for the album.

In November 2006, a deluxe edition was released. The deluxe edition included six different tracks, with three new songs produced by Aaron Sprinkle, and also three original demos of songs that were re-recorded for the first album, Pokinatcha. To make room, the final six songs from the original Let It Happen were taken off. The deluxe edition also includes a DVD with twelve music videos.
