List of anarchist musicians

The following is a list of anarchist musicians, which details instruments such musicians use, musical genres they perform, and, if applicable, bands which they are members of.

An anarchist is a person who rejects any form of compulsory government (cf. "state") and supports its elimination. Anarchism can be summarized as the belief that all forms of rulership are undesirable and should be abolished.

This list only deals with individual, self-identified anarchists who are musicians. Musicians who have not self-identified as anarchists are not included; nor are bands and music collectives who collectively identify as anarchist, although individual members thereof may be.

Although the word anarchism is understood by many in its classic sense, the word is often misused and misunderstood. Anarchism, because of the threat it imposes upon established authority, has been historically, and is still, misused by power holders.

Defining anarchism today as merely a movement to abolish the state is not adequate. Anarchism today is being used to find solutions to the problems of power; not just state power, but corporate power and all immediate forms of domination among individuals and organizations
