Let's Do It for Johnny is the third studio album by American rock band Bowling for Soup, released on May 16, 2000, by Jive Records. It was recorded at Reel Time Audio in Denton, Texas, about 100 miles from where the band was formed in Wichita Falls, and featured the group's first hit, "The Bitch Song." The album name is a reference to The Outsiders. It is the first album with Gary Wiseman on drums. The album also features a cover of Bryan Adams' "Summer of '69".
The band re-recorded several of their older songs for this album. Tracks 6, 7, and 8 appeared on the album Rock on Honorable Ones!!, tracks 1, 2, 4, 5, and 9 originally appeared on the EP Tell Me When to Whoa, and track 8 appeared on both Rock on Honorable Ones!! and Tell Me When to Whoa.
It was announced in a band newsletter on July 2, 1999 that drummer Lance Morrill decided to quit the band to focus on the family life after recently getting married. Longtime friend Gary Wiseman would be welcomed as the bands new drummer and would soon get to work recording a new album.
On January 12, 2000 the band made it known that they have been in the recording studio and that they have signed to Jive Records. The title was first mentioned as "Let's Do It For Jonnie" but Jonnie was later changed to Johnny for unknown reasons. The title takes its name from the 1983 Francis Ford Coppola film "The Outsiders".
Tracks such as "Belgium", "Scope", and "The Bitch Song" were remixed from previous albums by Matt Wallace of Everlast and Faith No More fame.
Additionally the band recorded a song "The Greatest Day" for a penned Tiger Woods video game.
