Rock Goddess is the debut studio album by the English all-female heavy metal band Rock Goddess. It was originally released in February 1983, on the label A&M. It was produced by experienced sound engineer Vic Maile.

On release, the album was received favourably by the majority of music critics. Rock Goddess' most commercially successful album, it went on to peak at #65 on the UK Albums Chart, following the rising of the new wave of British heavy metal phenomenon.[3] Two singles were issued from Rock Goddess: "Heavy Metal Rock 'n' Roll" and "My Angel" which peaked at #64 on the UK Singles Chart.
