Hawkwind je engleski rock bend, poznat kao jedna od najstarijih space rock grupa. Karakteristika teksta njihova pjesama su urbane i science fiction teme. Također su poznati kao preteča punk rocka[1] i danas se često smatra svojevrsnom poveznicom između hippie i punk kultura.[2]

Osnovan je u novembru 1969. od strane kantautora i gitarista Dave Brocka, a nakon toga je prošao kroz brojne inkarnacije i muzičke stilove. U grupi su sudjelovali brojni muzičari; fantasy i science fiction pisac Michael Moorcock je bio njen povremeni suradnik.

  1. Buckley 2003, p. 403, "The addition of Simon House(violin/keyboards) in 1974 mellowed the musical assault without damaging the fabric, but with proto-punk Lemmy on the bass the demands of heavy rock would always be satisfied."
  2. Scaruffi 2003, pg. 114, "Hawkwind (2) invented "space-rock", a hybrid of hard-rock and acid-rock that united the sonic power of the former and the free improvisation of the latter (and Robert Calvert's sci-fi visions). X In Search Of Space (1971) and Doremi Falso Latido (1972), summarized on their Space Ritual (1973), refined the idea, but theirs was a cult phenomenon that focused mostly on live performance (somewhat similar to what had happened in the USA with the Grateful Dead) while boasting the frenzied, noisy attitude of the MC5. Hawkwind's gargantuan sound also represents a natural (no matter how demented) liaison between hippy culture and punk culture."
