The Cockney Rejects are an Oi! punk band formed in the East End of London in 1979. Their biggest UK hit "The Greatest Cockney Rip-Off" was a parody of Sham 69's "Hersham Boys". Other songs were less commercial, as they tended to be about street fighting and football hooliganism—with the exception of the band's version of the famous West Ham United anthem, "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles." Cockney Rejects expressed contempt for all politicians in their lyrics, and they rejected media claims that they had a British Movement following, or that the band members supported the views of that far right group.
