"Rock My World" is the name of a 1988 hit single by British pop group Five Star. It became their last ever UK Top 40 hit, peaking at #28. The video saw the band leather clad, with long hair extensions, dancing in the bottom of a quarry, with dumper trucks driving around them. The B-side, "Sweetest Innocence", received a BPI award for best instrumental.[citation needed]

Throughout 1988, Five Star's record sales continued to decline. Their album Rock the World, from which this single came from, only reached #17 on the album chart (their lowest placing for an album at that time). The next single, "There's a Brand New World", would bring Five Star's run of 15 Top 40 hits to an end when it only reached #61.
