Does it strike anyone as ironic that on several other threads we're blasting the BNP and yet still using the term 'Krautrock'? And 'Japrock' is another one slung 'round these parts, too, even tho both derive from WW2-era epithets?


Are they any worse than the lamentable "Brit-Pop" epithet???


Does 'Brit' have it's origins in a negative context, tho? Or did it emerge out of English culture itself as merely a shortened version of 'British'? Anyone know?

'Kraut' and 'Jap' most definitely DID begin as slurs.
