Nazi punk

A Nazi punk is a neo-Nazi who is part of the punk subculture. The term also describes the related music genre,[1] which is sometimes also referred to as hatecore. Nazi punk music generally sounds like other forms of punk rock, but differs by having lyrics that express hatred of people of color, Jews, homosexuals, communists, anarchists, anti-racists and other perceived enemies.

It is a subgenre of punk that contrasts sharply with the anti-authoritarian, anti-fascist, left-wing ideas prevalent in much of the punk subculture. Nazi punks are different from early punks such as Sid Vicious and Siouxsie Sioux, who are believed to have incorporated Nazi imagery such as Swastikas for shock or comedy value.
