JoelhB53 left the following as a comment, but I think it's worthy of some prime air time.
Here's a conversation we can have ... at what point does a musician's odious political views make listening to him/her impossible? I just found out that Eno refused to allow an Israeli ballet troupe to use one of his songs because he hates Israel. Of course, my favorite opera composer is Richard Wagner, and my favorite choral piece is Carmina Burina. Both the Furher's faves!
And, America's second biggest asshole, Mike Love, deserves our disdain always.
I was once told in confidence that Chrissie Hynde was an anti-semite. I don't think I've reached for a Pretenders album since. But maybe it's because I only really love the first Pretenders album, so it isn't much of a loss.
When Ted Nugent's solo debut came out on Epic in 1975, I thought it was one of the best hard rock albums of the time and continued to love it until the late 80's. Then, I started paying attention. "Stranglehold" just doesn't cut it for me anymore. And last year, some friends and I got together to play some music, and we did a Nugent song, at the request of the guitar player. I didn't want to, but chose not to explain why and just played the damn thing. I still have the debut record, by the way, but it's been relegated to storage, or what I call the minor leagues. (The major leaguers are in my home, nicely alphabetized on shelves.)
And while this example isn't quite on the same level, I once a read an interview with Graham Parker where he claimed he had never written a bad song. I had already been not listening to most of his 90's output due to more than a few "no bad songs," but that statement made me hate "Heat Treatment" for a year.
