Welcome to Rocky Records®! We’re an American clothing retailer of streetwear apparel with headquarters in Tempe, Arizona. Aimed to be the main sponsor and go to brand for the global underground culture. Founded in early 2018 by Dale Thomas Krupla and Jose Rodriguez. The brand is also active in the digital publication business through our official alternative online blog.
We harken back to a time of talent, ingenuity, community, curation, and counter-culture, and we try to honor that with the stories we write, The Lovers and Fighters we interview, and the places we go, but most importantly, we offer a place to find and champion the unpublished, the not yet seen, the highly un-officials, the outcast and broken-hearted, the Kings & Queens of the Underground … You may not know the names yet, but you will soon.
We admire True Icons, game changers, revolutionaries. Counter culturalists. The Iggyies, the Bukowskies, the Pistols, Thompsons, Jaggers, Berrys, Bowies, Warhols. You.
We’ll take Janis’ scream, a dive bar make out, Keith’s licks and feed back in our monitor and we’ll make you look good while doing it. We interview people you haven’t met, feature music you haven’t heard, go to places you can add to your bucket list, and cover events you should make next year. An online hub defined by its differences.
