"Rock & Roll Machine" is a 1977 song by hard rock band Triumph from their second album Rock & Roll Machine. The song was written by Gil Moore and had existed as part of Triumph's stage act as far back as 1975. Recorded live during the three-week sessions for the album, the song discusses a band, described as a machine, who destroys the audience with its speed, fury and intensity.

Though the song was written and sung by drummer/vocalist Gil Moore, it is noted for its lengthy guitar solo performed by Rik Emmett.
