Anarcho-punk emerged as a distinct strand of punk culture into the 1980s. Typically associated with the band Crass, the tenets of anarcho-punk were also developed through artworks, writing and debate conducted within multiple punk fanzines. The chapter looks at the contested development of anarcho-punks politics and aesthetic.
