I liked it much better when everyone who listened to rock and metal was an evil satan worshiper who sacrifices babies on the weekends.

I had commented in a recent thread about remembering (with fondness) the days we could blame Marilyn Manson for our woes. Ha! No, we're far too advanced in our stupidity to blame things on the music industry anymore.
Anyway, this girl? Nazi? Not a Nazi? You decide.
Since the early 1990s, various forms of “white power” music have grown from a cottage industry serving a few racist skinheads to a multimillion-dollar, worldwide industry that is a primary conduit of money and young recruits to the radical right.
While it was once almost always one or another form of hard-core rock ’n’ roll, it has more recently taken all kinds of musical forms, even ballads.
At any given time, there are usually between 100 and 150 white power music bands operating in the United States
White power bands play a number of different types of music, although Oi!, hatecore punk, and National Socialist Black Metal music are probably the most popular.
Many bands are affiliated with specific extremist groups, such as the Hammerskins, a large racist skinhead group.
A number of white power music concerts occur every year in the United States, but most people who listen to white power music must buy CDs or download the music from the Internet.
An entire network of white supremacist record labels, distributors, and sellers exist to spread white power music, all active on the Internet.
Some mainstream businesses such as iTunes and Amazon.com also sell some of this music.
White power music is international in scope, existing everywhere there are white supremacists, including North America, South America, Europe, South Africa, and Australia and New Zealand.
White power music conveys messages of hatred, but also services other purposes, such as urging or celebrating violence, glorifying white supremacist heroes or "martyrs," promoting a particular group or leader, and convenying a sense of commonality and solidarity among white supremacists.
White power music can also be a recruitment tool, though it is probably more successful as a passive recruitment tool than as a way for extremists pro-actively to try to spread white supremacy.
Blue Eyed Devils was a white power music group which emerged from Delaware, United States in 1995, and played its last show in 2003.
The band was formed of members of the band Nordic Thunder, following the murder of vocalist Joe Rowan in 1994.Two members of Blue Eyed Devils were brothers Robert and Ryan Huber; following the dissolution of the band, Robert formed the metal band Teardown. Other members included guitarist/singer Wade Page, who also played for the bands End Apathy and Definite Hate, and in 2012 committed the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting.
Page killed himself during the attack after being wounded by police officers, according to the FBI.

On the way to work this morning I was rocking Ministry's "Jesus Built My Hotrod" at 11 on the volume.
When i was a kid it meant you were a devil worshipper. Different hype and mania back in the 80's compared to now....but its no less stupid.

So it's confirmed, Calgary police are morons.
That's about as broad brush painting as saying all cops like donuts.
If Spotify wants to remove music, perhaps they should start with Rap music. You know, the kind that is rife with N bombs and glorifies violence, drugs, guns, bitches and hoes.
As for parents looking for signs of their child being part of a hate group here's an idea. TALK to your f*$%ng kids!
Spend some time with them, get to know them and rub off some of your own values onto them.
We are headed to a vastly different world than the one we know and we're getting there very quickly. It's not going to be pretty.
If the FBI is to be believed, every one of the hundreds of Juggalos under this tent were potentially part of a criminal syndicate. That’s because in 2011, the FBI took the extraordinary and unprecedented step of labeling the entire fan base of ICP a gang, placing them alongside the Bloods, Crips and MS-13, after a string of crimes carried out by people identified as Juggalos.
