France's far-right populist presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has often said that she’s the true anti-establishment choice in the French election. BuzzFeed News decided to look back on some of Le Pen's most punk rock moments.

1. Here’s Le Pen as a teenager posing for a photo like a true anarchist on her family's estate in Saint-Cloud, France.

(Also her family’s estate was given to them by a man named Hubert Lambert who was a wealthy cement-maker who hoped Le Pen’s dad would be the one to finally bring monarchy back to France.)

4. It seems 1988 was a big year for Le Pen’s one-woman battle against the cabal of oligarchs secretly controlling Europe. Here she is sipping cocktails in the West Indies with Count Michel de Rostolan, a member of the French nobility. Rock ’n’ roll.

11. And finally, here’s Le Pen once again embracing the power of her grassroots movement and tapping into the pulse of the average French citizen by, like, captaining a big boat or something.
