CRUCIFIX was an American hardcore punk band from Berkeley, California, active from 1980 to 1984. They were among the most popular acts of the San Francisco punk scene of the early 1980's. Crucifix was founded and fronted by Cambodian-born singer Sothira Pheng, whose family had fled the country when the Khmer Rouge seized power.
They were distinct among American underground bands for their strong D-beat musical characteristics and anarchist content. The band's debut 1983 full-length album "Dehumanization" on Corpus Christi Records, an offshoot of Crass Records, is often considered to be a cornerstone of political punk.

Originally released in 1982 on the band’s own Freak records, Nineteen Eighty-Four was a massive musical leap for Crucifix, providing a link between the initial self titled 12-inch EP and the Dehumanization LP, an undeniable classic of Reagan-era hardcore political punk. Nineteen Eighty-Four is a lo-fi, live-in-studio 2 track recording capturing the band at full intensity, an onslaught of volume and distortion. This recording marked the band’s move into the area of political engagement through message, graphics, and a DIY ethos.
