Ukrainian rock is a genre that emerged in Ukraine during the late 1980s and early 1990s, following the country's independence from the Soviet Union. The genre is characterized by a mix of rock and folk elements, often featuring lyrics in the Ukrainian language.

One of the most popular Ukrainian rock bands is Okean Elzy, formed in Lviv in 1994. The band's music combines rock, pop, and folk elements, with powerful vocals from lead singer Svyatoslav Vakarchuk. Other notable Ukrainian rock bands include Vopli Vidopliassova, Haydamaky, and Skryabin.

There are several radio stations in Ukraine that feature Ukrainian rock music, including Radio ROKS, which has a dedicated Ukrainian rock show called "ROKS.UA."
