Summary/Abstract: Drawing on advanced concepts concerning the dialogical relation between the categories of convention and innovation in the field of popular music (Lipsitz 1990, McClary 2000, Hawkins 2002, Levy 2005), the article offers a discussion on rock music as an innovative phenomenon in Bulgarian culture. Its particular manifestations associated with leading rock groups in the local scene (mostly Shturzite and FSB), are examined in the specific context of musical environment, youth culture, socio-cultural climate, dichotomies old – new, own – foreign, etc., as observed during the 1960s and 1970s in Bulgaria.
