Cromagnon was an American experimental band that was active during the late-1960s. Led by multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriters Austin Grasmere and Brian Elliot, the band released Orgasm in 1969 which was later reissued as Cave Rock. They are said to have foreshadowed the rise of noise rock, no wave, and industrial rock.

Their Cave Rock combined psychedelic rock and folk rock with primitive instrumentation (including sticks and stones).
