#928: ‘Mummy Doesn’t Know You’re A Nazi’ – Frenzal Rhomb

I’m not going to presume that I know what your reading speed is like, so I’m going to make a blanket assumption here when I say that there’s a fair chance that this entry could take more time to read than the song takes to listen to. Yes, we’re experiencing a bit of a milestone here today. No, it’s nothing fancy, but you are about to witness the shortest song on this whole countdown. At 1:24, it’s Frenzal Rhomb’s ‘Mummy Doesn’t Know You’re A Nazi’.

Despite the coarse sounding nature of the song, the track is rather a timely reminder of the recent rise of the alt-right and their inherent racism. Oh, and it’s pretty fun too, especially due to how it effectively likens these people to stereotypical folks who still live at home with their parents.

While punk music has long had a history with tackling racism and Nazism (just look at the Dead Kennedy’s ‘Nazi Punks Fuck Off‘), Frenzal Rhomb are no stranger to the topic either. Filled with lyrics such as “No I’ve never met someone so full of hate. It’s a wonder you’ve got time to masturbate over images of men in uniforms. And you’ve better keep an ear out for the door ’cause dinner could be ready,” and “Because your mummy doesn’t know that you’re a Nazi. Your mummy doesn’t know about the national front. She doesn’t know that you’re a Nazi, you’re sitting in your room being a Nazi cunt,” it manages to completely ridicule the movement, again likening these people to socially-unprepared children who aren’t ready to face the world outside.

While many may still find the song offensive despite the anti-racist message tucked away within, you certainly have to hand it to Frenzal Rhomb for their unabashed way that they tackle issues of this nature.
