We’ll begin examining the term “degenerate music,” which was applied in the 1930s by the Nazi government in Germany to certain forms of music that were considered to be harmful or decadent.

Any music that was opposed to the Nazi regime by virtue of its content or the political views of its composers and performers was considered “degenerate.” It was also applied to works that featured Jewish or African characters or works by composers of Marxist persuasion.
