All Rock Operas

Complete rock operas list - every rock opera concept album is listed here, with cover artwork. This rock opera list is alphabetical by album title, but can be sorted by any column. There are well over 100 rock operas released across all genres including hard rock, metal, southern rock, alternative rock, and even punk (thank you Green Day). And of course progressive rock - prog rock operas are a staple of the genre. This list includes concept albums that may not have been specifically portrayed as "Rock Operas" by the bands or artists, such as Rush's 2112, but fit the Rock Opera format as a narrative piece with characters.

What examples of rock operas? Well, there's the original and perhaps the most famous one: The Who's iconic ode to the healing power of music in Tommy. This deaf, dumb and blind kid who witnessed murder as a youth was rescued by the music and the pinball wizard became a legend. This is just one of the many examples of amazing rock operas that have existed since the 1960s at the advent of the mainstream rock movement.
