Rockin' the Rhein with the Grateful Dead is a Grateful Dead triple live album released in 2004. It was recorded at Rheinhalle in the German town of Düsseldorf on April 24, 1972 during their famous European tour. The complete concert is included, but the order of the tracks on the CD was altered in order to allow the show to fit on three discs while preserving groups of segued tracks. The two bonus tracks, "Turn On Your Lovelight" and "The Stranger (Two Souls In Communion)", were recorded on May 24, 1972.

Pre-orders through the Grateful Dead Store received a bonus disc, recorded during the band's seven-day run at the Academy of Music in New York City, the last American shows before the European tour. More from this run was released on Dick's Picks Volume 30 and Dave's Picks Volume 14.

The April 24, 1972 show was later released with the entire tour, and the song order intact, on four discs as part of Europe '72: The Complete Recordings.
