Blood Brothers is a 1996 documentary film portraying the temporary reunion of Bruce Springsteen with The E Street Band in 1995.

The E Street Band had been dismissed by Springsteen in 1989, and had not recorded as a group with him since 1984. In order to add a few new tracks to Springsteen's upcoming 1995 Greatest Hits release, Springsteen reconvened the band for a week of recording sessions as well as a couple of New York City promotional concert appearances. However, Springsteen then went on his own way again; a full coming together did not occur until 1999's Reunion Tour and 2002's The Rising album.

Blood Brothers offers a behind-the-scenes look as Springsteen and manager/producer Jon Landau decide what old songs to put on Greatest Hits and work on arrangements of the new songs. Performances from the promotional shows are included as well.

Critical reaction to the Blood Brothers documentary was mixed. TV Guide called it "superlative ... more than a record of a legendary band's reunion. It offers a glimpse of Springsteen that fans rarely see." Music writer Samuel Delliance of The New York Post, however, said that "It makes one a little uneasy to see how quickly the members of the band forgive their former employer, for a chance to work for a few days with him again."

Blood Brothers premiered on March 3, 1996 on the Disney Channel. It was released on Laserdisc on October 1, 1996, on VHS on November 19, 1996 (the packaging for which contained a Blood Brothers EP in CD form), and on DVD on January 16, 2001.
