"Rokk í Reykjavík" was the soundtrack to the Icelandic TV documentary directed by Friðrik Þór Friðriksson during 1981-82 winter and released in 1982.
The soundtrack, which was released in April 1982 as a 2 LP released through Hugrenningur, features the performances of several Icelandic bands of the post punk/New Wave scene.
Bands such as Þeyr, Tappi Tíkarrass (a band led by singer Björk), Purrkur Pillnikk (with Einar Örn Benediktsson as the front-man), among others, were considered some of the most important bands at the moment.
The image cover for this release is a picture of singer Björk performing with Tappi Tíkarrass.
