The words and music of hatecore
A decade later, unsettling memories of a white-power band
Wade Michael Page wasn’t a member of the neo-Nazi band Definite Hate when I interviewed the band in North Carolina in 2001. He apparently joined the band later, finding common ground in a universe that embraced a hatred for Jews and other minorities and believed in a world where whites could live separately. Page, who police say entered a Sikh temple Aug. 5 and allegedly opened fire, killing six, has now become the face of the shadowy white power movement.
