Rock was a Yugoslav music magazine, published from 1982 to 1990.


Rock was first published in April 1982, under the name Rock 82.[1] Initially, Rock 82 was as a supplement of NIP Politika's comic magazine Strip 82,[1] the back cover of Strip 82 being the front cover of Rock 82. The magazine was published in an unusual format of 11x30cm. The first editor-in-chief of Rock 82[1] and the initiator of the magazine publishing was critic Peca Popović.[2] In an interview for the documentary series Rockovnik Popović stated:

From January 1983, Rock began being published as an independent periodical released as newspaper in tabloid format, and then in March 1985, it started releasing in magazine format.[1] In 1985, 7" single with the charity song "Za milion godina", the Yugoslav contribution to Live Aid, was released with the magazine.[3]

Popović was succeeded by Vladislav Bajac, who was succeeded by Dragan Todorović.[1] Since October 1988, the magazine was edited by Saša Gajević, and was published under the name Pop Rock.[1] The last, 161st issue, was released on December 13, 1990.[1]
