List of Oi! Bands and Artists : Vote for your favorites.

Oi! is a subgenre of punk rock that originated in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s. The music and its associated subculture had the goal of bringing together punks, skinheads and other working class youth.

The Oi! movement was partly a response to the perception that many participants in the early punk rock scene were, in the words of The Business guitarist Steve Kent, "trendy university people using long words, trying to be artistic...and losing touch". André Schlesinger, singer of The Press, said, "Oi shares many similarities with folk music, besides its often simple musical structure; quaint in some respects and crude in others, not to mention brutally honest, it usually tells a story based in truth." For instance, "Such Fun", from Oi! Oi! That's Yer Lot!, by The Blood is an extension of the 1977 Sex Pistols song "God Save the Queen" which attacks the abuse of power by those who hold themselves in a royal or religious majesty.
