Don’t Look Back is the second studio album by American rock band Boston, released in 1978 by Epic Records. The album reached No. 1 in the US and No. 9 in the UK. The title track helped with the albums success it remains one of the band’s biggest hits, reaching No. 4 in 1978 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The album sold over one million copies in the ten days of its release, and was certified 7× platinum by the RIAA in the US on April 11, 1996.

This album also marked the beginning of the band’s legal fight with its record label, Epic. Guitarist, producer and primary songwriter Tom Scholz claimed that Epic executives pushed him and the band into releasing the album before they felt it was ready. He also said that the album “was ridiculously short. It needed another song”. Their next album, Third Stage, was not released for another eight years, by which time the band and record label had parted ways and were fighting a courtroom battle that Boston ultimately won.

Don’t Look Back’s two-year gap from the band’s debut album marks the shortest between two Boston albums to date.
