Rock Against Communism
Rock Against Communism were a series of white power concerts held in the United Kingdom in late 1970's-early 1990's which were started by the National Front. The name of these concerts is a play on Rock Against Racism, and is deceptive in that the concerts seldom focused on the subject of communism and more often than not featured neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic, racist, and violent themes. Later, the term "rock against communism" was adopted by white power and neo-Nazi skinhead organizations as a meme in reference to racist and bigoted rock music often promoted by said organizations. In America, there are some would-be punk bands who continue to insist on 'Rocking Against Communism, as in the case of bands like Screwdriver, but most of their fan base is too young to remember what the USSR was. In general, the Southern Poverty Law Center sees their racism as quite periphery to real political problems and more of the stuff that jackass hicks do to make fools of themselves.
