The co-founder of a pop band known for its buoyant melodies once sang lyrics you’d never want to hear on a Top 40 radio station.
Ulf Ekberg, whose Ace of Base outfit gave us hits like The Sign and All That She Wants, formerly sang with a band known as Commit Suicide.
Among the lyrics Commit Suicide sang (originally in Swedish, this is Noisey’s translation): “Men in white hoods march down the road, we enjoy ourselves when we’re sawing off n—–s’ heads/ Immigrant, we hate you! Out, out, out, out! Nordic people, wake up now! Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot!”
Ekberg previously denounced his past musical affiliation, saying, “I told everyone I really regret what I did,” he said. “I’ve closed that book.”
