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

The song "Gotta Find a Way" contains the backmasked message, "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".
