Turn It Down Campaign Releases Updated White Power Band Map


Jill Garvey • Aug 17, 2012

Introducing the Turn It Down white power band map. This map includes white nationalist bands that have recorded, toured, or otherwise actively promoted themselves within the past three years. We will continue to update this list from time to time, as new bands surface or old bands resurface. We welcome any feedback, and we encourage you to send us information about bands you think need to be included on our list.

For fans, bands, retailers, venues and labels, now is the time to reinforce a culture of anti-bigotry. You have a right to ban white power music from your school, store or venue. Send a message by refusing to market white power albums or appear at a show with a known white power band. Preventing this music from creeping into schools and communities is not an issue of infringing on free speech; it’s an exercise in the right to speak out against hate.

It is our hope that bands, venues, promoters, parents, teachers and most importantly fans can use this list to identify and respond to white power music in their communities. More than anything, the Turn It Down Campaign believes in the power of communities – composed of every facet of the music industry and its audiences – as the most effective tool in keeping hate out of our scenes.
