Temple of Rock is the debut album by the German hard rock band Michael Schenker's Temple of Rock.

Curiously, Schenker's tour for the record featured a setlist with very few tracks from the album, the setlists being primarily composed of old UFO material, as well as some older solo band material and Scorpions songs.
