"The Best of Rock za Hrvatsku" (Rock for Croatia) was a popular compilation album of anti-war and patriotic songs released in 1992 during the Croatian War of Independence. Some of the contributing artists had been popular across the then recently defunct federation of Yugoslavia, namely Psihomodo pop, Jura Stublić, Parni valjak, Boa and Aerodrom's Jura Pađen. These artists took a pro-Croatian stance as the breakup of Yugoslavia and the Yugoslav Wars began, while others such as Azra did not participate because they disbanded and because of Branimir "Johnny" Štulić's publicly known frustrations with politics of the time.

The album also ushered in some new faces who would become the first generation of distinctly Croatian acts: the dance group ET, rock band Thompson and others.
