Rock Against Racism (RAR) was the name of an "anti-racist" music campaign in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s and early 1980s, associated with the Anti-Nazi League, affiliated with the Trotskyist Socialist Workers Party.

One inspiration is stated to be a drunken declaration at a concert by Eric Clapton in support of former Conservative minister Enoch Powell (known for his anti-immigration Rivers of Blood speech).

RAR was reborn in 2002 as Love Music Hate Racism with the Anti-Nazi League/Unite Against Fascism again being involved.
