The UK Rock & Metal Singles Chart and the UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart are record charts compiled in the United Kingdom by the Official Charts Company (OCC) to determine the most popular singles and albums in the rock and heavy metal genres. The two charts are compiled by the OCC from digital downloads, physical record sales and audio streams in UK retail outlets with larger than average genre-specific sales.
The chart has been published on the official OCC website since 1994 and appears on BBC Radio 1's website, since October 2001, and in UKChartsPlus newsletter.
