The Gang of Four was a British post–punk group from Leeds, England. Original personnel were singer Jon King, guitarist Andy Gill, bass guitarist Dave Allen and drummer Hugo Burnham. They were fully active from 1977 to 1984, and then re–emerged twice in the 1990s with King and Gill. In 2004, the original lineup reunited.

They played a stripped–down mix of punk rock, with strong elements of funk music and dub reggae and an emphasis on the social and political ills in society. Gang of Four's later albums (Songs of the Free and Hard) found them softening some of their more jarring qualities, and drifting towards dance–funk and disco.
