Rockers Revenge was a studio musical project assembled by producer Arthur Baker. Their initial entry on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, "Walking On Sunshine" (featuring vocals by Donnie Calvin) hit #1 on the US dance chart in 1982. Follow-ups "The Harder They Come" (1983) and "Living For the Weekend" (1984) also charted.

In 1988 a Rockers Revenge track ("Love Is On Our Side") appeared on Rough House Vol. 1, an early house music compilation. In early 2005 "Walking On Sunshine" was re-released on Gossip US record label, featuring remixes by Hott 22 and Live Element.

Another Rockers Revenge track called "Battle Cry" was featured in the movie Beat Street and its soundtrack.
