Fascist not Racist.

We are only touching bases with Nazi ideology which we think is the ultimate sign of rebellion we're not the first musician to do it either. So here's some examples. 

Marilyn Manson

Sol Niger is the name of the photo underneath by Gottfried Helnwein.
What Sol Niger means "a persistent belief in alchemic and hermetic tradition in the existence of two suns: a hidden one of pure." or just in plain english it means Black Sun Rising referring to Sirius A and B.

Marilyn Manson has done his verison of Sol Niger himself.

SS Death's Head military marching band.

 Nuremberg Rally-esque stage set for the Grotesk Burlesk with the two women back-up dancers in Manson masks, SS attire complete with Nazi HJ (Hitler Jugend) drums.

The Tottenkopf insignia worn by the elite Nazi Schutzstaffel (SS) & Disney's Mickey Mouse Club logo.

 Nazi blitz military pins, the motif of which partly inspired Manson's Shock logo. 

Print Mafia posters for two 2008 U.S. venues of Marilyn Manson's Rape of The World tour, evoking Manson's fascism.

Art done by Manson.

Death in June

Death in June clearly uses The Tottenkopf as there logo.
  Death in June also uses many Runes and Lyrically has fascist ideologies.

Boyd Rice / NON

Not much to say about NON he's clearly fascist with out any vagueness. He's using the WOLFS HOOK rune in this photo. NON is not afraid to use the swastika either.

Joy Division

This band was originally called Warsaw an important city in the Nazis war progress.
 The name Joy Division was a reference to an area of WW2 concentration camps where women and children were forced into sexual slavery.

Here on Joy Division's first EP you can clrealy see  (Hitler Jugend) drums.

On Joy Divisions first ever recording Barney introduced a song saying "You've all forgot Rudolf Hess" 

Radio Werewolf 

 Once agian not much to say about Radio Werewolf, they clearly are fascist with out any vagueness. The name Radio Werewolf comes from The Werwolf a propaganda station "Radio Werwolf" (which actually broadcast from Nauen near Berlin during April 1945), also claimed responsibility for the assassination of Major General Maurice Rose, commander of the US 3rd Armored Division on 30 March 1945, who was in reality killed in action by regular troops on 31 March.

None of theses bands are so called Racist. Fascist yes, Racist no. One of the reasons why Radio Werwolf broke up is because of a controversial due to the perception of the band by some quarters of the music press as supporting Neonazi ideologies. Though this was denied by the band, Evil Wilhelm quit Radio Werewolf shortly after the 8-8-88 Rally, later stating that he felt their music was being misunderstood by Neo Nazi groups. Which lead to the total stop of the band altogather.

UPDATE: MAY/02/2013
Sorry the last information was incorrect
Here are the proper the facts.
Evil Wilhelm's departure from RW was not the total stop of the band at all. The Radio Werewolf albums The Fiery Summons, The Lightning & The Sun, Songs for the End of the World, Bring Me the Head of Geraldo Rivera, Witchcraft Boots, Love Conquers All were all released from 1988-1993 when RW was co-directed by Nikolas & Zeena Schreck as the musical arm of their Werewolf Order. Our recent release The Vinyl Solution available from compiles many rare RW vinyl tracks from the 88-93 period and several unreleased tracks too.

Many Punk Bands who were anarchist and not Fascist had to incorporated Nazi imagery.

Siouxsie Sioux

Sid Vicious
"Nazi chic is the approving use of Nazi-era style, imagery, and paraphernalia in clothing and popular culture, especially when used for taboo-breaking or shock value rather than out of genuine sympathies with Nazism.
Its use began in the mid-seventies with the emergence of the punk movement in London: the Sex Pistols' first television appearance occurred with a person of their entourage wearing a swastika. Nazi chic was later used in the fashion industry in various occasions."
