Aus Rotten was one of the best punk bands or the 90's for two reasons. 1. They play excellent hardcore punk in the tradition of Discharge, the Varukers and Chaos UK. 2. They make the connection between punk and radical politics in a clear and understandable way. That is to say, Aus Rotten's politics are right up front, but phrased in an accessible fashion rather than obtuse intellectualisms or a PC sermon. Aus Rotten's popularity brings to mind the days of Discharge, Conflict and the Subhumans when political punk bands were just as well known and liked as commercial bands. Fuck Nazi Sympathy is a challenge to the punk scene not to tolerate Nazis and Fascism in the scene.
