Not really.
Most of the punks in the UK were rebelling against the policies of a left wing Labour government when punk started in 1976/77.

And then quickly changed their tune when Thatcher got in a couple of years later.

Some of those listed are just idiots. Ted Nuegent is the biggest ****ing joke. Conservative my ass. Dude's a hypocrite, just look at his personal life.

I would think most country-music stars are right-wingers. Remember how quick the country world turned on those dixie chicks?

Music that is consumed and produced by the younger generation, or more liberal crowd, will have more left-wing proponents. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rules.

BTW, I love your *dodos* comparison

I'm not going to comment on the main question because I wouldn't be able to answer it impartially, but for extreme right wingers look no further than the Norwegian Black Metal scene. In particular this guy.

I watched Until the Light Takes Us last night! That's an extremist for sure, maybe not to the right. Not to get off on another topic, but I could see his point of view. (NOT the murder; NOR do I support burning relics) They wanted to resist becoming Americanized. Can't say I blame them. Varg was a completely narcissistic.

I know that this isn't exactly what you are talking about but the thread title immediately brought this up in my mind.


while searching for it I found out these girls have denounced this stuff, but it'll always stick out in mind as a great(and by that I mean horrible)example of music with an ignorant political view.

That must be satirical and not serious. But also, a pretty good song, especially for the acoustic guitar genre.

That'd be fine if Ramones were british, but they're American. But you know, it kinda makes sense, I mean how many political messages did the Ramones have? Not many, especially for a punk band. I think they just liked the aesthetics of punk.

Had you said 'The Ramones being conservative was an oxymoron' then I wouldn't have said anything.

But you didn't you said 'Punks being conservative was an oxymoron'.

Hence my comment.
