Classic rock is a musical style of rock music whose roots go back to the years 1965 to 1975. Created in January 1981 by Philadelphia radio station WYSP, this term stems from the album-oriented rock (AOR) of the 1980s. This rock music now includes a large playlist of songs from the 60s, 70s, 80s and early 90s.

Classic rock music is usually listened to more often by adults than by teenagers. Some classic rock radio stations also play a limited number of newly released songs, similar in style to the music they play.

In recent years, the term classic rock has expanded to include hair metal and progressive rock music.
