Let's Rock Again! is a music documentary film following Joe Strummer as he tours across the United States and Japan with his band the Mescaleros promoting their second album Global a Go-Go. The memoir was shot by filmmaker and longtime Strummer friend Dick Rude in the 18 months leading up to Strummer's death in 2002.

In light of Strummer's death, the film is "inevitably sad to watch now," as The Guardian wrote in a review, but still inspirational in its portrayal of "a star of rare humility".[1]
