Shoxx (stylized as SHOXX) is a Japanese music magazine published monthly by Ongakusenkasha. It focuses on Japan's visual kei scene, featuring its most popular bands as well as new ones. It is advertised as a "Visual and Hard Shock" magazine on each cover.

Each issue costs about 930 yen. Different artists are featured on the cover every month, along with a 20-page feature which covers them through in-depth profiles and interviews, and a poster of the cover star. Regularly featured bands include Miyavi, Mucc, Nightmare, The Gazette, Kra, Sid, Kagrra, Alice Nine, An Cafe and LM.C.

The magazine tends to appeal to overseas fans due to the large number of photos (often full-page) and advertisements included in each issue. It is becoming more widely available as the popularity of Japanese music increases in the West.
