The forerunner of every Rock Against (or For) Foo. Formed in the punk era, as neo-Nazi groups (e.g. the National Front) tried, successfully, to siphon off some of that constituency for their own uses (Margaret Thatcher, in turn, tapped into NF anger for electoral gain); it didn't help that Sid Vicious and Siouxsie Sioux had naïvely worn swastikas, unwittingly lending street cred to Hitler. RAR concerts, by celebrating pop culture diversity, showered gob on the racialism parade.
