Revenge was an early British punk fanzine, which ran from Jan 1977 for 6-7 issues to early 1978.

Published out of Grimsby Town, it was sold at gigs though out the north of England and midlands, and through Sounds magazine and the Rough Trade shop and distribution.

Issues comprised of single sided photocopied handwritten pages with self taken photos, it promoted a DiY aesthetic and practice in both music and zine production. The magazine encouraged and promoted other zines.

Discussed / reviewed contemporaneously in mainstream press such as NME and Sounds. It is best know for citations in Jon Savage's Englands Dreaming, and Ralph Shakur's Understanding Popular Music and has developed a reputation as a seminal example of the Punk DiY ethos, despite rarely being seen.
