BECK (ベック) is a manga, which was later made into an anime under the name BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad. It was created by mangaka Harold Sakuishi and was originally published by Kodansha in Weekly Shonen Magazine. It tells the story of a group of Japanese teenagers who form a rock band. The manga is currently licensed in the USA by TOKYOPOP. The series has also spawned three guidebooks. BECK won the 2002 Kodansha Manga Award for shōnen.

The story focuses around a boy named Yukio Tanaka. It starts in his first year of middle school when he is 14 years old. In the current issues he is 19.

The anime contains a mixture of Engrish and Japanese dialogue with an often interesting interplay between the two, including phenomenon such as code switching.

The manga contains many various references and tributes to classic rock and pop culture in general. Nearly every other chapter cover is a mock cover of a popular rock album with characters from the manga in place of the people usually pictured. A particular dream sequence in the manga places various rock idols such as Eric Clapton, John Lennon and Freddie Mercury standing around crying while picking up trash. Sometimes popular musicians are out right mentioned, such as when Ryusuke plays Machine Gun, a song by Jimi Hendrix which saves his life, since the thug about to shoot him finds it unable to shoot someone that resembles Hendrix so closely. Ryusuke's guitar, Lucille, and its history, are based heavily on that of B. B. King's guitar of the same name. When the band is given the opportunity to release an album in the United States their music is bastardized by being renamed apparently out of nowhere; Mongolian Chop Squad. The agent who does this gives the band no royalties, reaps all profits gained from the band in America, and as a hilarious commentary on the western popularization of eastern culture with no regard for respect or understanding thereof; the agent bears a striking resemblance to Quentin Tarantino.

Harold Sakuishi himself has admitted that the band is inspired in part by the Red Hot Chili Peppers (bassist Taira has more than a passing reseblance to Chili Pepper's bassist Flea). Sakuishi admits that they are his favorite band with their music, specifically the song Under the Bridge, helping him through a difficult time in his life. A one-shot manga also called Under the Bridge was written by Sakuishi which narrates his first meeting with the band.
