"Let It Rock" is a song by Chuck Berry from his 1960 album Rockin' at the Hops. The same year, it was released as a single and reached #64 in the United States on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #6 in the UK.
The song was originally credited to Edward Anderson; Chuck Berry's complete name is "Charles Edward Anderson Berry".
The song is about working on a train track as a train is headed toward the workers. Its opening guitar riff, chord structure and verse tune are reminiscent of Berry's 1958 mega-hit, "Johnny B. Goode", which also mentions trains.
