Nurr Goth Isn’t Political #17 – DAF: Der Mussolini

DAF, Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft wrote this song as a sort of bizarre satire. It’s useful to point out because goth, as a subculture, is less afraid to mock fascism by pretending to embrace than, say, punk. But politics can be a lot blurrier in the spooky subculture, and of course there are those who do embrace fascism, though they’re very much the minority.

DAF also wrote a more traditionally political song, The Sheriff, against the US invasion of Iraq in 2003.

lyrics after the cut:

DAF: Der Mussolini

geh in die knie. wackle mit den hueften. klatsch
in die haende. und tanz den mussolini. tanz den
adolf hitler. beweg deinen hintern. und tanz den
jesus christus.

get up. shake your hips. clap your hands. and dance
the mussolini. dance the adolf hitler. move your
ass. and dance the jesus christ.)
