Degenerate music is part of the wider spectrum of degenerate culture, the purpose of it is to undermine the traditional culture of a peoples as part of the destabilisation template.


In the late 1800s, music halls, vaudevilles and cabarets were widely regarded as degenerate against the higher spirit of classical music and the authenticity of folkish music. The United States and the United Kingdom are infamous as well springs of degenerate music from the 20th century including jazz, pop music, disco, rap and hip hop. Much of this is inspired by or uses Negroes, while the managers behind the scenes are usually Ashkenazi Jews. MTV of Sumner Redstone is a symbol of "American" cultureless degeneracy in music, infamous across the entire globe.

Jazz, which took the Western world by storm, following the First World War, was, in addition, amalgamated with Western music and mainstreamed into the world of serious music via the following composers, an inordinately high number of whom were Jewish: Kurt Weill, Darius Milhaud, George Gershwin, Bernhard Sekles, Maurice Ravel, Leonard Bernstein, George Antheil, Aaron Copland, and Ernst Krenek.

Within the genre of serious music, degenerate trends were promulgated by one man: Arnold Schönberg. From his purported desire to "free dissonance" and to go beyond the "triteness" and "bankruptness" of tonality, he created atonal music or serialism. The tenets of this style include: lack of consonant intervals, excessive use of m2, TT, and other discordant intervals, lack of key, and a constant use of a tone-row (twelve pitches, avoiding consonant intervals, that are used in different, though formulaic, variations). This form of charlatanism, akin to the writings and thoughts of other Jews in different fields (Freud, Boas, Marx, et al.), created "weird" and "nerve-wracking" music. Again, a disproportionately large number of Jewish composers were involved in this movement: Rene Leibkowitz, Alban Berg,Anton Webern, Morton Feldman, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Hanns Eisler, Igor Stravinsky, Gyorgy Ligeti, etc.

After atonality or dodecaphonic music, came another school of modern music: minimalism. The three big names in this style are: Phillip Glass, Steve Reich, and John Adams. This decadent and insipid trend involves playing a serious of pitches in quick succession followed by a pitch-set that is slightly varied. All this is done with tandem repeats.

Recognizing the problem of degenerate music, Hans Severus Ziegler opened the exhibition "Degenerate music" in 1937 in Düsseldorf. Later, it was presented in Weimar, Munich and Vienna. Besides the Judeo-American-Negro phenomenon of jazz, serious music by composers such as Gustav Mahler, Arnold Schönberg and of other Jews, as well as non-Jews, was presented as degenerate.


  • With magazines, with movies, it’s always weird when things are targeted for young people yet they’re driven by people that are like 40 years too old. It can’t be like this 70-year-old Jewish man that doesn’t leave his desk all day, telling me what the clubs want to hear. – Degenerate music star Miley Cyrus[1][2][3]
