You must be aware of the recent Wisconsin (USA) shooting at a Sikh Temple which killed as many as six people, the shooter was later identified as Wade Michael Page, who was involved in a band called End Apathy. Page spent years playing bass and guitar in bands that railed against a racially integrated America. His last endeavor, End Apathy, sang of compassion as a weakness and called America a “sick society.”
After the incident, the popular Hardcore band ‘HATEBREED’ were also accused of being a ‘White Power’ motivated band. Their song ‘Destroy Everything‘ was in much criticism for the same.
