I'll just be thinking "That's a nice riff, but fuck me, these dude are dicks."
Or, y'know, something more intellectual, if you like.
I'll still give it a go mind you.
I do listen to some quite politically dodgy right wing powernoise/neo-folk at times, and I think it depends whether they bring it lyrically into the songs. Music can't really be inherently racist in of itself, it's really down to the lyrics.
Unless it's an instrumental and called 'Die, untermensch scum, in the glorious gas chambers of Belsen'
or something, y'dig?
