'Hatecore' Music Used As Recruitment Tool

The revelation that Wisconsin shooter Wade Michael Page played in the hardcore punk white-power bands End Apathy and Definite Hate has increased the public’s awareness of the so-called ‘hatecore’ style of music, which is used as a recruitment tool by white supremacist organizations. What do you think?

  • “One day I hope to live in a world where hardcore racist music isn’t created to recruit white supremacists, but is instead played purely for the enjoyment of its listeners.”

  • “I can see why they would use this type of music—it’s so catchy. There’s this one song where the guy screams ‘fuck, fuck, fuck!’ 300 times in a row, and it’s been stuck in my head all day.”
