Against All Authority (often abbreviated -AAA-) is a DIY ska punk band.


Against All Authority was founded in Miami, Florida in 1992,[1] driven by willingness to promote their message—"questioning our economic differences and promoting our human similarities", as stated by their official site. A strong engagement in political and social issues is clearly evident in their lyrics. The band maintain a fierce DIY stance influenced by the approach of the Dead Kennedys and Subhumans.[2] Early in their career the band decided to book concerts, make recordings and even produce band t-shirts on their own.[1] Later they signed on independent label Hopeless Records, becoming one of their major bands. In addition to touring and recording, the band is frequently involved in demonstrations and social projects. They have also influenced a number of other bands[3]
