Fokofpolisiekar (Afrikaans for "Fuckoffpolicecar") is a South African Afrikaans punk rock band from Bellville near Cape Town.
The band was formed in April 2003, initially as a joke to shock the generally conservative white South African Afrikaans community with its name and the notion of an Afrikaans punk band. They released their first EP, As Jy Met Vuur Speel Sal Jy Brand (If you play with fire you will get burnt) soon after forming, and one of its tracks, "Hemel op die Platteland" (Heaven in the countryside) made history when it became the first Afrikaans song to be officially playlisted on the South African English national radio station 5FM. Their first complete album, Lugsteuring (Air disturbance), produced by John Paul De Stefani, was released in 2004, followed in 2005 with another EP, Monoloog In Stereo (Monologue in stereo). Brand Suid-Afrika (Burn South Africa) was released in 2006.
Fokofpolisiekar have performed at various venues throughout South Africa and in October 2005 they toured the United Kingdom.
