Is there such a thing as Arabic rock music?

I tried looking on google and all I found was that traditional music that everyone thinks of when say arabic music.  I'm just curious that if they had something similar to rock that I would like to hear it

Arab music and culture is a very wide field. Chances are you would consider turkish and ethiopean music arab even though neither of them are arab (technically speaking). Rock music and culture is also a very wide field ranging from elvis presley to slayer and beyond.

But weird intersections do happen. Take this 60something year old recording from egypt:



If you feel like diving into it there is a lot of north african stuff that could be justifiably filed under arab rock. As for the middle eastern part of the world only the turks (not arab) have produced real "rock", as far as I know anyway. I would be pleased to be proven wrong

It's just my mind roaming all over the place and being randomly curious about stuff.

I really like hard rock music, grudge, punk rock and heavy metal.   My current favorite group is Greta Van Fleet.

But I've also become hooked on the Qur'an and all things Islamic but I don't think muslims would want me.

Which is funny because I could absolutely see myself wearing a niqab or a burka just to be able to ignore everyone when I go shopping.\

So I guess I was kind of hoping that maybe someone knew of some Middle Eastern music that's similar to what I like to listen to.

I just got used to listening to Mongolian Rock, The HU. I can only imagine what the Arabs are doing. Now I got to look, the suspense is killing me

I never knew about these guys. been listening to Huun Huur Tu for ages, which is more traditional Mongolian stuff but awesome nonetheless

Here's a Touareg (nomad people from north africa / sahara) band rocking it out:
