* Swedish band {{Sabaton}} get this a lot. They make bombastic power metal, their vocalist rolls his Rs in a very particular way, and most of their songs are about WW I and II, quite a few of them from the perspective of German forces. Disregard that they have several songs from the perspective of the nations fighting ''against'' Nazi Germany as well as definite anti-war anthems, and that their eight minute epic about the Nazis' rise to power is called ''Rise of Evil''. One of their songs, "Counterstrike", is about the ''Israeli victory'' in the Six-Day War. They also have three songs ("40:1", "Uprising", and "Inmate 4859") celebrating the Polish soldiers who fought off the Nazis, making their music a case of "Music To ''Defend'' Poland To". Particularly funny would be "Panzerkampf", which is often flagged on Website/YouTube as "inapproppriate", despite its lyrics in clear and unambiguous English describing the ''Soviet'' counterattack at Kursk, which finally broke the invasion.

* In Creator/LarsVonTrier's ''{{Film/Melancholia}}'', the overture from Creator/RichardWagner's ''Tristan und Isolde'' is used as the main musical theme. Von Trier even [[DudeNotFunny joked]] [[LampshadeHanging that he was a Nazi]]!

* ''After'' having invaded Poland from the East and having been invaded himself by the guys who had invaded Poland from the West, Stalin ordered a song for the Great Patriotic War to be written. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HK2lNuiD7gM Listen yourself.]] Like the Imperial March from ''Franchise/StarWars'', this one is somewhat atypical in that it's in a minor key, though it uses major chords in the chorus.

* Music/{{Morrissey}} has been accused of having racist or ethno-nationalist opinions for years, due to his use of British patriotic or homoerotic skinhead imagery, and the lyrics of songs like "Bengali in Platforms" and "Asian Rut". In 2012 he settled a libel suit against the NME over a 2007 interview which he claimed had been [[TwistingTheWords maliciously distorted]] to make him appear to be expressing anti-immigration views. However, he pretty well burned his boats on the subject with two incidents in 2017: first, after a suicide bombing at a pop concert in Manchester, when he tweeted that he blamed immigration for the attack (by a British-born perpetrator) and that politicians were too frightened or too PC to blame Islam for terrorism as it deserved to be; and secondly when, during a live radio performance, he expressed support for Anne Marie Waters, a very anti-Muslim unsuccessful candidate for leadership of the nationalistic UK Independence Party.

** Lampshaded in Creator/EdmundCrispin's mystery novel SWAN SONG. We have the sophomoric anti-Wagner comments of Oxford students met by a girl who tries to point out how illogical they are, and complaints by a German refugee (who, ironically, has delayed his return because Wagner is now taboo in Germany and he can only attend the operas in England.)

* Music/{{Madness}}, quite strangely, have been accused of being (depending on the source) Nazis, members of the right-wing National Front, or just fascists in general, in no small part because they ended up having quite a skinhead (as in National Front / BNP) following during the 1980s. This is in spite of the fact that they wrote a sad song about a woman being exiled for being pregnant with a mixed race baby, and later wrote a song which was a massive TakeThat against apartheid. The extreme-right-wing element probably latched onto them as they were the only major TwoTone group to have an all-white line-up.

This is in spite of the fact that they wrote a sad song anti-racist songs like "Embarrassment", which is explicitly about a woman being exiled for the sax player Lee Thompson's anger over negative reactions by some of his older relatives to his sister being pregnant with by a mixed race baby, black man, and later wrote a song "Waiting for the Ghost Train", which was a massive TakeThat against apartheid. The extreme-right-wing element probably latched onto them as they were the only major TwoTone group to have an all-white line-up.

* The Music/BlueOysterCult's live rabble-rouser [=ME262=], which namechecks Hitler and Goering and which tells the story of the last days of WW2 through the [=PoV=] of a jet fighter ace, has a middle eight punctuating guitar stings with the sound of falling bombs and marching jackboots. Despite the fact the BOC have names like Bloom and Pearlman and Roeser, and by inference belong to the ''last'' ethnicity to be sympathetic to Nazism, they were accused of Nazi sympathies.
