Barney Rocks! is the eleventh US studio album from Barney, released on CD and cassette on August 15, 2000 under the music division of Lyrick Studios, making it the final album to be released under the studio. It was soon re-released by Koch Records and HIT Entertainment in 2003 along with previous Barney albums.[3]

On April 10, 2020, the album was transferred to Warner Music Group's Arts Music division, along with other Barney albums, as Mattel entered into an exclusive, multi-year global music licensing agreement between the company, announced on May 1, 2020.[4]

The album was released the same day as Come on Over to Barney's House, while also being inspired from the video, and it was the only studio album to have Barney voiced by Duncan Brannan.

The album sticks with the theme of pop/rock and having a musical styling of that genre but aged appropriate for children.

Following the release of Barney Rocks, a Spanish language version, Barney Rocks! (En Español!) was released on March 2, 2001. Inspired by the album, a stage show was performed in Mexico from 2010-2011 titled Barney Rocks! El Concierto en Vivo! taking songs from the album and other Barney media.
