Scott Weiland Defends Use Of Nazi SS Hat

Launch Radio Networks is reporting that frontman made the German branch of the band’s label, Sony BMG Music, uneasy after executives there learned that Weiland had recently been wearing a Nazi SS hat onstage. According to, a letter from the German office to the U.S. office read in part, “We absolutely don’t want to interfere in how our artists dress (but) any kind of wearing/ presenting Nazi symbols in public is strictly forbidden by law in Germany and can lead to getting arrested!” Weiland responded, “The Nazi SS hat that I wear in fact symbolizes the loss of democracy and the shift to totalitarianism…one could make an argument that indeed the government of the U.S. is evolving into, or is already, a fascist police state, hiding under the guise of a republic.”
