Bloodrock is the self-titled debut from the Fort Worth, Texas hard rock band Bloodrock, released under Capitol Records in 1970. The cover art was designed by producer Terry Knight.

The song "Gotta Find a Way" contains one of the earliest instances of backmasking.[citation needed] Near the beginning of the song, the following message is played backwards, "Anyone who is stupid enough to play this record backwards deserves what he is about to hear," followed by an excerpt from the poem Jabberwocky.
