Alrune Rod (formed 1968) was a Danish psychedelic rock band.

Alrune Rod appeared in the 1971 concert film Skæve Dage I Thy[1]. The film whose title loosely translates as Stoned Days in Thy documents the Thylejren, the first rock music festival in Denmark which took place in Thy in 1970. Alrune Rod played at the festival, sometimes called the Danish Woodstock, alongside contemporaries in the Danish music scene at the time to an audience of 30,000.

Rock musician and musicologist Julian Cope has described their first two albums as:

"sounding somewhere between early Pink Floyd, an emptier Arthur Brown’s Kingdom Come, and PAWN HEARTS-period Van Der Graaf Generator"[1]
