KROQ is a commercial rock and roll music radio station in Los Angeles, California, broadcasting on 106.7 FM. The call sign is pronounced, "Kay rock."

The first station with the call letters KROQ was formed in 1972, broadcasting on 1500 AM, with a format of Top 40 hits. In 1973 KROQ bought the station KPPC 106.7 FM, which had been broadcasting rock and roll since 1968. The FM station became KROQ-FM. The two stations broadcast identical programing through 1978, when the AM station was sold.

In the early 1990s, KROQ was purchased by Infinity Broadcasting[?]. KROQ plays alternative, new wave, nu metal, rap and indie artists.
