"Roll On" is the second album by Australian rock band The Living End, released in Australia and New Zealand on EMI in 2000, and internationally on Reprise/Warner Brothers in 2001.

Musically, the album marked a change from the sound of their debut album, "The Living End". Roll On had a notably more polished sound (as compared to the more garage-y sound of the previous album). Horn sections featured on numerous songs, such as "Uncle Harry" and "Killing The Right". Whereas the previous album had displayed punk and rockabilly influences (by artists such as Green Day and Stray Cats), Roll On showed more Australian rock influences, particularly artists of the 80s Pub Rock era. The album was recorded with producer Nick Launay, who had previously worked with artists such as Silverchair and Midnight Oil.

It also marked the last major work featuring drummer Travis Demsey. In the downtime following the album's release and subsequent tour, he would leave the band, to be replaced by Andy Strachan. The song "Carry Me Home" from this album is featured on the Playstation 2 and Xbox 360 game, "Guitar Hero II", and is considered to be one of the hardest songs in the game.

ARIA publicised that Roll On had officially achieved 2x Platinum status in Australia in November 2007. This was a great achievement as all of their other album releases were simultaneously awarded a higher accreditation. These new figures, however, indicated that sales of Roll On had been topped by the band's fourth studio release, State Of Emergency. This now means that the Roll On album now takes the position as the band's third most successful release.
