generally shocking music often times shock rock bands have elaborate "shocking," stage shows like the band GWAR who dress up in "shocking," costumes and squirt blood on the audience and kill celebrities such as George W. Bush, Osama bin laden and Paris Hilton.

also refers to bands with gory, sexual, or down right nasty lyrics like the band Cannibal Corpse who sing songs like "I Cum Blood." You can already tell how graphic the lyrics in that song.

Other bands in the "Shock Rock" genre are Alice Cooper, W.A.S.P., The Mentors, The Dwarves and GG Allin.
"Damn when my mom listened th the song "Fucking an Animal" by GWAR she flipped and threw all my CD's away, now i cant listen to Shock rock"

"Dude that W.A.S.P. concert was awsome i love how Blackie Lawless spits blood, damn i love shock rock"

A genre of music that is oriented to shock. Though it is becoming harder to shock people these days because we have "seen it already". Music is usually heavy metal (Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, KISS) or Industrial metal (Rammstein, Marilyn Manson). But in the end its all just music. The performances were more meant to be shocking then the music itself.
