The American Nazi Party (ANP) was or is the name of several National Socialist organizations.

George Lincoln Rockwell founded the World Union of Free Enterprise National Socialists (WUFENS) in 1959. In 1960, this was changed to the American Nazi Party. In 1966 or 1967, the name was changed to National Socialist White People's Party (NSWPP). Before Rockwell's death, it is stated to have had about 500 followers, but declined afterwards. The organization was a COINTELPRO target, which may make various negative claims regarding it problematic.

In 1983, the organization changed its name to the New Order.

An unrelated organization uses the name "American Nazi Party" since 2014.

There have been other organizations using the name, now defunct.
