Nazi Punks F*** Off

"Nazi Punks F*** Off" was the fifth single by the Dead Kennedys. The record was released in 1981 on Alternative Tentacles with "Moral Majority" as the B-side. Both are taken from the In God We Trust, Inc. EP, although the version of the title track on the EP is a different recording from the single version.

History

In the late 1970s, some members of the punk subculture on the West Coast of the United States began to use Nazi symbolism for shock effect, and others adopted neo-Nazism in earnest. Despite their strong view on fascism, Dead Kennedys became popular among the neo-Nazi punk movement when they were misinterpreted as right wing polemicists, and their gigs attracted an unwanted audience of neo-Nazis skinheads.[1] The Dead Kennedys used "Nazi Punks Fuck Off" to answer these audience members. The single included a free armband with a crossed-out swastika. The design was later adapted both as the Dead Kennedys' logo and as a symbol for the anti-racist punk movement.
