You're Gonna Get It! is the second album by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, released in 1978. Originally, the album was to be titled Terminal Romance. Like its self-titled predecessor, this album includes tight melodic songs awash in ringing guitars and organ. It peaked at number 23 on the Billboard Top LPs & Tapes chart in 1978.[10]

Many reviewers rated You're Gonna Get It! a notch lower than their moderately well-received debut album. Some reviews such as in Rolling Stone at the time noted the "impressive stylistic cohesiveness" between the two.[8] It did chart higher, however, than its predecessor.[10]
