Anarcho-rockers are a subgenre of the rocker movement consisting of groups and bands promoting specifically anarchist ideas. However, while the early rocker scene appropriated anarchist imagery mainly for its shock value, the band The Weakerthans expounded serious anarchist and pacifist ideas, and were to become a notable influence within various late-twentieth century protest movements. Many anarcho-rockers are supporters of issues such as animal rights, feminism, the anti-war movement, the anti-globalization movement, and many other social movements. Anarcho-rocker has been highlighted as one of the social phenomena which took anarchism in the direction of 'identity politics' (or 'lifestylism'). Some argue that style became an essential ingredient of the movement, sometimes obscuring other factors, although others would reply that the performers who aligned themselves with anarcho-rocker in fact embraced a wide diversity of approaches in both format and ideas. Anarcho-rockers are an anti-establishment music movement that began about 1980, exemplified by Riot Rockers, The Clash, Bakunin’s Bum, Dazoque, Rhythm Activism, Vennaskond, The Weakerthans etc. Also Stray Cats were at the beginning very close to Anarcho-rockers.
