Derogatory term for a style of hard rock that was prevalent in the 70s, practiced in its purest form by the band Foreigner. Few bands played cock rock exclusively, but some artists with cock rock tendencies include Bad Company, Peter Frampton, Grand Funk Railroad, the Rolling Stones, Ted Nugent, John Fogerty, Aerosmith, AC/DC, and Bob Seger.

Musically, cock rock overlaps with blues rock, southern rock, hard rock, and arena rock, but what ties it all together as cock rock is an egocentric, tough-guy swagger and lots of ridiculous macho posturing. The lyrics often equate hard-rocking with virility and dangerousness.

The genre's primary audience was (and still is) guys with mullets and Camaros.

Though cock rock still gets plenty of airplay on classic rock radio, there are (mercifully) very few new practitioners of the style.

A style of music that went out in the early 1990s. Although nu-metal could be considered a new form of cock rock, it is generally bands like Poison, Winger, at al.
Stop listening to that shitty, sexist, corporate, drug-fueled cock rock and put this Dead Kennedys CD on instead!

An offshoot of '80s hair metal which was known for containing cheesy, dirty lyrics. Usually the lyrics were about things like how big your dick is or cumming all over the place. Not really worth listening to if you actually like good music. It sold because girls bought into it, but then it faded because of the rise of grunge.
The only hair band worth listening to is Dokken, because at least they're not a bunch of cock rockers who only talk about the size of their schlongs and how many girls they've fucked.

A prime example of cock rock is Poison. Just look at them. Their pants are uber-tight, because they like to show off the size of their packages.
