Rock'n Roll is a 1994 compilation album by the New York Dolls. It features all the songs from their self-titled album, with the exception of their cover of Bo Diddley's song "Pills", and selections from Too Much Too Soon. There are also three unreleased tracks: "Courageous Cat Theme", which was recorded for a commercial during the sessions for the second album and demos of band composed, "Lone Star Queen" and a cover of "Don't Mess With Cupid".

This is the first remastered release of NY Dolls recordings. 24-bit remasters of the complete studio albums were released in 2006 in a limited edition in Japan.
