Nazi-Skinheads are a right wing subculture that developed in the United Kingdom in the first half of the eighties. Typically racist, conservative, and anti-semitic, they emerged in a time when the United Kingdom was experiencing the second wave of Punk. The re-emergence of the skinhead subculture, that had originally died out in 1972, came as a sort of backlash against the commercialization of Punk.
Punk theoretically was against the commercial world, but right in the beginning was exploited and promoted through mainstream media. The left-wing created the image of the Punks as Leftist (while in the beginning had nothing to do with party politics) while the revival of the skinhead style was taken advantage of by the right wing. Nazi skinheads are often called Boneheads by anti-racist skinheads and punks.
This media sensationalism started to label the whole skinhead style as Nazi (while in the beginning few were), with the help of the singer Ian Stuart of the originally punk band Skrewdriver. Nazi-Skinheads was the first White Power LP, printed by White Noise (the created music label of the National Front, a party on the right in England at the time) and it came out in 1982.
This scene continued to grow through the nineties and it is still expanding rapidly, partly due to much of the revenue being put into promoting the music, style, and culture to youth. It has changed strategies and targets several times but is still a growing business that produces large revenues, often tax-free. Estimates of their numbers world wide run as high as 150 000, with Russia alone having about 50 000.
