Rock Records (滾石唱片) is a record company from Taiwan started by Sam Tuan and Johnny Tuan in 1980. It is one of the largest record companies in East Asia not owned by an international record company.

Rock Records began to sign artists and produce original records in Hong Kong in 1993. Before that, its presence in Hong Kong was merely an importer of records by Taiwan artists into the Hong Kong market. It has ceased its original production operations in Hong Kong in 2005.
