Rockin' into the Night is the third studio album by the southern rock band 38 Special, released in 1979.

With this album, 38 Special incorporates some arena rock elements into its sound.

The title track, written by three members of Survivor, became the band's first big hit (peaking at #43 during a nine-week run on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart),[2] and marked the first of many songs Jim Peterik would write for and with the band.

"Money Honey" is a cover of a 1953 song by Clyde McPhatter and The Drifters.
