Anarchy (アナーキー) was an influential punk rock band from Japan that formed in 1978. Their name came from Sex Pistols' "Anarchy in the UK" and the band originally had five members. One of them was arrested in 1981 and the rest continued as The Rock Band (2) for a few years, but it did not really work out that well and they became inactive after a while. In 1996 they reformed as Anarchy with a new drummer, released a few albums, but eventually disbanded in 2001. They played a few one-off shows at events since and in 2008 a documentary premiered about the band.
