    About a year ago I came to the decision to find out if some of the bands I listened to were dodgy politically and/or racist. I had read things on the internet and decided to look further into it. I got rid of albums by CONDEMNED 84, COMBAT 84, 4 SKINS, THE EXPLOITED, and SCUM(An English skinhead band).
    From what I have been able to gather these bands are racist/fascist. I am also a big fan of heavy metal and going through my pagan/black metal albums I pulled out(and got rid of) albums by Graveland and Temnozor. Two bands who are said to be supporters of Nazism. I think I am right in labelling all these bands racist/fascist.(correct me if I am wrong)
    Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated in case I have missed certain bands.

    Making white power music, no less. Pretty weird for an all-black band... I did read something about homophobia from the singer, which in itself isn't good either. But rascist? I think not.

    Yeah, I just read about the homophobia incident with them and Big Boys but that happened a long time ago, when they were 20 or so. People can change. Hell, I used to be homophobic in my early teens but that's certainly not the case anymore. :)

    Don't let it bother you too much, we all make mistakes. And this one was easily and quickly corrected.

    Forgive my lack of technical skills with a computer, but I don't know how to post multiple quotes, and/or parse them on this particular forum.

    I would like to briefly address the issue of The Bad Brains, and homophobia, or their reputation for being homophobes.....

    This is all pretty much spelled out in Dave Dictor's book, "MDC, Memoirs of a Damaged Civilization".

    Dave Dictor goes into great detail about how he met The Bad Brains in California, in the early 1980s, how he was able to secure a gig for The Bad Brains, in Austin, Texas, sharing the bill with The Big Boys, and The Dicks.

    I am not going to go into details about who The Big Boys, and The Dicks were, except to say that the lead singers were openly gay, and the lead singer of The Dicks sometimes dressed up in drag.

    When MDC got to the venue where the show was to take place, Dave personally witnessed H.R. from The Bad Brains have a meltdown over the fact that members of The Dicks and The Big Boys were gay, screaming that he would not share the same stage with "Blood Clot Faggots".

    H.R. also used Rastafarianism as his excuse for his homophobia in a note that he wrote to "Biscuits" the lead singer of The Big Boys, quoting certain passages from The Old Testament and ending his screed by saying See You in Hell You Sick Pervert Faggot. (He also allegedly had the nerve to steal Biscuit's pot)

    This also inspired MDC to write and record a song called "Pay To Cum Along" and why Bad Brains were kicked off the 1983 Rock Against Reagan tour.

    HR has severe mental health problems. That doesn't excuse some of the things he's said and done, but he's spent many years with very serious mental issues and has said and done many things that are insane by any standard. Realistically, he should have been getting mental health treatment for many years. A mentally ill person can't be held to the same standards as someone who is mentally stable.

    You might want to throw out your MOTORHEAD collection as well. At one time, I had a photo of Lemmy wearing a whole messload of swastika and iron eagle pins, but it got deleted. I tried doing an online search for the picture in question, but have not been able to track down said photo. HOWEVER..... if you look closely at the back of Iron Fist you WILL see a swastika carved into the middle horn of the metal statue of their boar's head mascot. You might also want to get rid of all your Iggy and The Stooges albums. Posted here is a picture from the 20th anniversary of the release of the Metallic K.O. album. This picture was featured in one of the inner sleeves. That's Ron Ashton dragging a very bloody Iggy off the stage. Nazi9.jpg
