Anti-Everything is a punk band from Trinidad and Tobago.
Anti-Everything was founded in 2000 in St. Joseph, about 11 km east of the capital Port of Spain. At this time all members still were teenagers, and the band name was chosen due to a general attitude of denial.
Anti-Everything play punk rock with elements of alternative rock. The band names several punk bands as influential - old school (Black Flag, Minor Threat) and new school (Pennywise, Strike Anywhere). In addition, the band names calypso interpreters as influential as in the past they were not afraid to broach controversial issues which were tabooed in public at that time. References to reggae, dub and ska can be found, and occasionally a steel pan is being used.
The lyrics of Anti-Everything mainly deal with political and social conflicts, often touching their home country Trinidad and Tobago. A minor part of their lyrics deals with personal topics such as the search for an identity, or has a pure fun character.
Anti-Everything is the only punk band in Trinidad and Tobago.
