The Lumpen was the Black Panther Party's official revolutionary band. It was a short-lived funk, R&B band, and performed between 1970-1971 in a ten-month span. They played current hits but changed the lyrics to express the revolutionary message of the Party.

They put a single out with the titles "Free Bobby Now" on one side and "No More" on the other side. It was produced by Seize the Time. There's also a live recording of a show at Merritt College in North Oakland, from November 10, 1970.
