Neonazi band in discover weekly

In my "discover weekly" I got "Third Reich From the Sun" from "Hanzel und Gretyl", which is clearly a neonazi band celebrating the third reich. I find this deeply disturbing. Is there a way to flag music as not appropriate? While this music might not be illegal in some countries, I would like to make sure that it doesn't appear in any of my playlists.

 

For reference, the lyrics of the song are here

Hi @T3kcit,

 

We didn't mean to cause any offense.

 

Right now we cannot change the music on your Discover Weekly, but we'll pass the feedback on to the right team. In the meantime, we'd suggest you giving this idea some kudos: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/All-Platforms-Discover-Add-like-or-dislike-button-to-per...

 

All best,

Hanzel und Gretyl are not a Neo Nazi band, just an American Industrial Metal band that uses a lot of post-Nazi Germany imagery.

 

I understand how people could get that impression, but their image is pretty much a spoof on racism/nazism. 

 

Hope this helped.

Have you read the lyrics that I posted above?

I guess they are free to define themselves however they like, but I'd say the lyrics speak for themselves. And they are not post-Nazi Germany imagery, they are Nazi Germany imagery.

Just take 30 seconds to google before you get all outraged, okay?

Or ask the artists themselves, they would be happy to explain things to you.

 

I'm sure you remember bands like marilyn manson or laibach, right?

 

Calling HuG a 'nazi' band is 100% totally missing the point - you really should take a second to read up on this topic.  It's parody.  Taken to the extreme.  For shock value.

And if you are going to go on about the lyrics - try listening to them all.

 

The album is nazi moon bases and secret psychic powers that fortell the end of the world by astroid impact in 2012.

 

You *do* understand parody and fun, right?

Apperently Spotifys algorythms have determened that you're a filthy nazi. There is no escaping it and this post isn't going to make anybody think otherwise.
