Les Inrockuptibles (French pronunciation: [le.zɛ̃.ʁɔ.kyp'tibl]) is a French cultural magazine. Started as a monthly magazine in 1986, it became weekly in 1995. The name is a play on "Les Incorruptibles", the French title of the American television series The Untouchables. Les Inrockuptibles is routinely nicknamed "Les Inrocks".
It's a French music magazine that periodically issues CD compilations.
The magazine tends to take a left-wing approach to art and society, lending itself to accusations of elitism and snobbishness. Despite this, the magazine was instrumental in popularising indie rock music with bands such as the Smiths and The House of Love in France and Francophone countries. It was unofficially coupled with the radio show by Bernard Lenoir having a nearly identical name L'inrockuptible.
There is an Argentine edition, with the name of "Los Inrockuptibles"
