Nazi punk

From ArticleWorld

Nazi punk is a genre of music given to being believers of nationalism, fascism, racialism, and/or national socialism, and also claim to be a part of the punk subculture.


The history of this faction within the punk genre dates back as early as 1978. It is centered on an organization from England known as the Punk Front. This group was a youth division of the racialist organization, The British National Front. Although the group only lasted for one year, it was successful in recruiting small numbers of English punks. Also, in forming a large number of racist punk bands.

The Nazi Skinhead subculture took dominance as the leaders of the White Power music movement. This followed the demise of the Punk Front in 1979. Soon after, Nazi-punkism began spreading world-wide. In the early 1980s, it hit America in storm, during the rise of the American hardcore punk scene.

Although the numbers of Nazi punks have always been small within their subculture, it should be noted that they have always existed.
