Get Some Go Again (stylized as Get Some -> Go Again) is the sixth studio album by Rollins Band, released in 2000. [4] It is also the first album by lead singer Henry Rollins after dissolving his longtime lineup featuring guitarist Chris Haskett and others. On this album, and its follow-up Nice , Rollins was backed by the band Mother Superior.


The album has been released with extra tracks and/or several slight variations in different territories, and was also released as an Enhanced CD with multimedia tracks, including videos in QuickTime format. Due to a manufacturing error, copies pressed and released for sale in the United States omitted the song "Illuminator", a remix of the first song on the album, "Illumination". In 2000 the album's publisher, DreamWorks Records, issued a statement to fans saying that those who purchased the defective discs could write the company and received a special promotional CD with the missing track, as well as a copy of the bonus enhanced CD.

When Rollins left DreamWorks in 2001, he took possession of the master tapes and reissued both this album's tracks, including the missing "Illuminator" remix, along with the tracks on the companion album Yellow Blues , on the double CD Get Some Go Again Sessions .
