According to an investigation by the Southern Poverty Law Center, Apple’s iTunes service, along with Amazon and Spotify, sell music produced by hate groups. Even though Apple is the only company to report taking any action in response to this claim, it only removed some of the hate music being distributed through its service.
H8Machine is an American right-wing rock and hatecore band from New Jersey that plays white power rock music. They were the head of the U.S. hatecore movement and are close to the Hammer Skins, whose emblems they point to in various recordings. They have 50 songs available on iTunes. Lyrics from their song “Bound for Glory” read:
“Dreadlocked bastard, gangster rapper/Raping white women is all that he’s after/You’ve fooled the rest, but I know what you’re about/Your threats will fall silent when you’re the body count.”
Brutal Attack/Ken McLellan
McLellan’s group has been labeled by the Anti-Defamation League as “one of the oldest hate bands in continuous existence,” according to SPIN. The self-described “white power” anthems have lines like “This is the final solution/ Our turn/They’ll burn.” They have five songs available for download. Their music is also sold through NSM88 records, which is owned by the National Socialist Movement, the largest neo-Nazi group in the U.S.
