"Hello Again" is a song by American rock band The Cars from their fifth studio album, Heartbeat City (1984). It was released on October 15, 1984, as the album's fourth single. The song was the fourth top-20 entry from the album, reaching number 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart; it also reached number eight on the Hot Dance/Disco chart and number 22 on the Top Rock Tracks chart. Ric Ocasek sings lead vocals on the track.
The music video for the song was directed by Andy Warhol, who also appeared in the video as a bartender. A then-unknown Gina Gershon also appeared in the video. Keyboardist Greg Hawkes said, "I think [Warhol] mainly did some of the conceptualizing and showed up to be an extra. And he invited his various friends to be in it. It was like any video shoot, but with a more interesting cast of characters. And you could always look over on the set and go 'Hey that's Andy Warhol.'"
The music video explored the controversial topics of sex and violence (mostly the former) that were being featured in music videos at the time.
