Rock It is an album by Chuck Berry, released in 1979 by Atco Records. It was his only release for the label.[2] Atco was the third label for which Berry made studio recordings, after two tenures with Chess Records, interrupted by a brief stint with Mercury Records in the 1960s.

Rock It was Berry's last studio album for 38 years until the announcement of his upcoming album Chuck, which is slated to be released in 2017.[3] It is also the last studio album to be released in his lifetime.
