Yeah he came up in my searches, and doesn't seem to espouse any sort of racist views. I think the ones that are said to be by him, aren't. I know some songs from Johnny Rebel are wrongly attributed to him.

Eh, he has songs where he uses the "n-word". See "****** Lover" & "Rails". Some retards think these songs are serious bsns.

I assumed Nigger Lover was one that was actually by Johnny Rebel. Mainly because it fits right in with the titles of a few of his other smash hits, like "Nigger, Nigger", "Who Likes a Nigger?", "Move Them Niggers North", and "Some Niggers Never Die (They Just Smell That Way)".

I agree to the extent that almost all preachy bands are annoying and pretty much any band that puts the ideology before the music tends to suck. That said, bands pushing a racist/homophobic/sexist/etc. ideology have the additional crap-factor of being horrible people added into the mix, which makes them even worse.

I just noticed that, I wrote this when I was a bit tired and I have a habit of switching letters when typing. I'll change it as soon as I get enough posts.

Also, yay, replies!

It's just music, and I think you have to approach it with an open mind.
Slayer's songs about the Holocaust are purely "documentary" in nature, if you would care to look at the lyrics

the only step they took in endorsing it was naming their fanclub "Slatanic Wehrmacht"

as for the Satanism, they sound like "opinions" rather than forcing it down your throat

Well, that's a big reason I cannot stand Public Enemy. Why would I ever want to listen to a homophobic act? Even if they are considered "great" by the masses?

I don't get the "Brown Sugar" reference.
Why would someone think THAT song is racist?
