Power noise (also known as powernoise, rhythmic noise, "noize" and occasionally as distorted beat music) is a subgenre of industrial music that takes its inspiration from some of the more structured and distorted early industrial acts, such as Esplendor Geométrico. There are also influences from hardcore techno, noise and technoid. The term "power noise" was originally coined by Raoul Roucka in 1997, who records as Noisex, with the track "United (Power Noise Movement)". Typically, power noise is based upon a distorted kick drum from a drum machine such as a Roland TR-909, uses militaristic 4/4 beats, and is usually instrumental. Sometimes a melodic component is added, but this is usually secondary to the rhythm. Power noise tracks are typically structured and danceable, but are known to be occasionally abstract. This genre is showcased at the annual Maschinenfest festival in Krefeld, Germany, as well as at Infest in Bradford, UK.

The term "power noise" should not be confused with the term "power electronics", which is a subgenre of noise.
