Charta 77 (named after Charter 77) is a Swedish punk-band formed in 1983 in the Swedish town Köping. The band consists today of Per Granberg (lyrics & bass), Johnny Smedberg (guitar), Mattias Söderlund (bass), Teijo Granberg (drums). The band is a very popular live act, and often plays on music festivals.

Per Granberg met Johnny Smedberg after Per's former band N.O.S's gig, at Folkets Park in Köping, and they then formed the new band Charta 77.
