Islamic punk band (taqwacore) from California, in the 2004 novel The Taqwacores by Michael Muhammed Knight.

The novel was turned into a 2010 film, The Taqwacores.

Taqwacore bands ran the gamut in attitude and ideology; there were groups like the Bin Qarmats and the Zaqqums whose lyrics and behavior lurked somewhere between social protest and juvenile disesteem, but also bands such as Bilal's Boulder that wouldn't even allow girls into their shows.
