Russian rock refers to rock music made in Russia and/or in Russian language. XXth century Russian rock is considered a cultural movement on its own, with strong emphasis on poetry and independent lifestyle. In modern Russia, however, there's a varied rock scene that is not really united.

Rock and roll became known in the Soviet Union in the 1960s and quickly broke free from its western roots. According to many music critics, its "golden age" years were the 1980s (especially the era of perestroika), when the Soviet underground rock bands could release their records officially and perform in television and radio. Russian rock remained popular throughout the 1990s and 2000s, when new radio stations and festivals were established. By 2010s, however, new bands usually followed the worldwide rock trends rather than traditions of "classic" Russian rock. .
