The article explores the possibility of a national music culture within the global form of rock music. The various theoretical approaches to the issue are examined and then specific examples of Irish rock music are explored as forms of hybridity which marry a sense of the local with the sounds of the global. Among the artists considered are Van Morrison, Horslips, Sinéad O'Connor and the Pogues
