Anarchy is the sixth studio album by anarcho-punk band Chumbawamba. Many of the tracks address specific social issues, such as homophobia, strikes or fascism.

Its graphic cover, depicting a baby's head emerging from a vagina caused the record to be banned from some shops and stocked in plain sleeves in others.[3] The iTunes version of the album replaces the baby picture with a painting of several flowers.
