The Ragnarock, a rock museum located in Roskilde, Denmark, is inspired by a youthful rock and roll fashion aesthetic.

The rock museum's entire exterior and most of its interior features aluminum cladding, replicating the studs and spikes that are often seen on rocker-themed apparel. The exterior of the museum is entirely covered in golden studs that jut out of the rest of the building in an asymmetrical fashion. The interior is made up of large red and black studs and is home to a museum, an auditorium and a bar.

The building would stand out in almost any environment but it especially does in the desolate site in which it is located -- another feature that gives it an authentic rock and roll vibe. While the rock museum is meant to personify rock music and culture in general, it also evokes the music genre styles that were popular in the late 1970's and throughout the 80's, making it a personification of youth rebellion.
