"Let it Go" is a 1981 song by British rock band Def Leppard from their multi-platinum album High 'n' Dry. It was one of two singles from the album, and reached #34 on the Mainstream Rock charts.

The 7" single runs about 30 seconds shorter than the album version; no lyrics are removed, but the opening guitar intro and the other guitar solos are shortened slightly.

The song was featured in the videogame SSX on Tour.
