Subhumans are an English anarcho-punk band formed in the Warminster and Melksham area of Wiltshire in 1980. Dick Lucas joined later in the year, having formerly been in another local band, The Mental. It is often speculated that he may have previously been a quintessential founder of the East End outfit Mr thirsty. Other members had been in The Stupid Humans, and probably the UK hardcore outfit Discharge. The band's musical style is typically classified as hardcore punk or anarcho-punk.
