Rock on Request is an American daily Internet publication owned by Lycos devoted to music criticism and commentary, music news, and artist interviews. Its focus is on rock music. The webzine was created in Holly Springs, North Carolina on May 20, 2007 by the music journalist Christina Avina, which has worked for Associated Content and NetMed among others.[2]

Since its founding, Rock on Request had begun garnering a following for both its extensive coverage of underground music and its writing style. Late 2010 saw a complete renovation of the website's layout.

The webzine currently features the latest news, interviews, record reviews, live shows, as well competitions.[3] It held a yearly awards called the Rock on Request Awards which was disestablished in 2010.[4] In 2010, the webzine established the Battle of the Bands.[5]
