Viking rock (Vikingarock in Swedish) is a rock music genre that takes much of its themes from 19th-century Viking romanticism,[1] mixing it with elements of rockabilly, Oi! or street punk, and folk music.[1] Frequent themes occurring in Viking rock include vikings and Norse mythology, as well as Sweden's King Karl XII and the Caroleans.

Viking rock is often linked to white supremacy.[2] Many make no distinction between Viking rock and white power music,[2][3] and there is debate whether Viking rock is essentially racist.[1][4]
