    Wow!

    Ulf Ekberg, a founding member of Ace of Base, started his career as a neo-Nazi skinhead.

    Not only that, he created a platform for his ideals through his Nazi punk band, Commit Suiside, which sang songs with "explicit racist lyrics." How explicit you might ask? Here's a little example:

    "Män i vita kåporna på vägen tågar. Vi njuter när vi huvudena av niggrerna sågar/ Svartskalle, vi hatar dig! Ut, ut, ut, ut! Nordens folk, vakna nu! Skjut, skjut, skjut, skjut!"

    Translation?

    "Men in white hoods march down the road, we enjoy ourselves when we're sawing off niggers’ heads/ Immigrant, we hate you! Out, out, out, out! Nordic people, wake up now! Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot!"



    And there's more:

    Ekberg was also a member of the Sweden Democrats, a political party that has publicly "rejected" any ties to neo-Nazism. This is interesting, considering the fact that the group was founded by Nazis, and active members still maintain connections with contemporary hate groups.

    I saw the sign, and it opened up my mind, I saw the sign.

    Ironically, Ace of Base (I saw the sign) was the song playing when I walked into my first gay bar. icon_lol.gif

    maybe that's why the original lead singer (the blonde girl) left the group and went into hiding.

    Hopefully he has changed his mind. Can you imagine if our every teenage mistake came to surface? Frequently teenagers do shit for the sole reason to shock and subvert, sometimes in stupid ways.

    Wouldn't this information be more helpful in 1997.

    Ironic that "I saw the sign" is based on reggae.
