Duck Rock (sometimes shortened as Drock) is a genre of rock music that was developed during the fall of 2014. Duck Rock bands are characterized by their performances and humorous songs about the Duckburg Universe, and the songs are often written from the point of view of a particular character from the comic books.
In contrast to mainstream bands that have some songs incorporating literary references among a wider repertoire of music (notably Led Zeppelin to The Lord of the Rings), Duck Rock bands take their inspiration entirely from the Duckburg universe. Although most listeners of the genre mainly are fans of Donald Duck, the Duckburg universe, Carl Barks and Don Rosa, some bands have attracted listeners outside of the comic books fan base.
Duck Rock initially started in Oslo, Norway, with the session project «StarratS of UfotofU», but the scene has grown internationally.
Duck Rock embraces “Do It Yourself”- ethics, with bands funding and self-producing their recordings, guerrilla marketing and distributing them through online social networking channels.
When performing live, duck rock bands often homage the characteristic look of the many duck characters by playing without pants.
