"Fall Back Down" is a song by the American punk rock band Rancid. It was released as the first single from their sixth album, Indestructible. "Fall Back Down" was released to radio on July 22, 2003.[1] It peaked at number 13 on the US Modern Rock Tracks.[2]

"Fall Back Down" was written by Tim Armstrong and Lars Frederiksen after Tim's divorce with Distillers' vocalist Brody Dalle, and is about friendship. The video featured guest appearances from Benji Madden of Good Charlotte and Kelly Osbourne, a move which was criticized by some Rancid fans as a sign that they had sold out.[citation needed]

The song features three guitar solos, two by Tim Armstrong and one by Lars Frederiksen.[citation needed]

This track was featured in video games and films including Tony Hawk's Underground 2,[3] NASCAR Thunder 2004, Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London, The Wedding Ringer, and Forza Horizon 3 in addition to the opening of Brody Jenner's reality TV show Bromance.[citation needed]

Canadian musician Lights recorded a cover for her EP titled "Acoustic" in 2010.
