This is not a good sign.
Ace of Base member Ulf Ekberg is responding to allegations that he has ties to Nazis, according to E! Online.
Word has spread that the musician was in a pro-Nazi band called Commit Suicide prior to helping form the popular '90s group Ace of Base.
Ulf admits that he regrets "some of my thoughts from those days."
He adds that his thoughts in that era were "nauseating."
However, he maintains that he did not write the controversial songs in question.
"I have seen this demo of six songs that began floating around in 1996 claiming that Commit Suicide had written those songs," Ulf says.
"I did have a synth band called Commit Suicide between 1984-1986 with two gentlemen called Jens Andersson and Jens Svensson, and two of the songs on this demo were written and performed by us," he explains.
"The problem is that the other four songs [are] skinhead music with very racist lyrics," Ulf continues. "These songs have absolutely nothing to do with Commit Suicide. We did not write or perform those songs that were attributed to us."
Ace of Base has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and is the third biggest-selling Swedish band ever. The group is known for hits like "The Sign" and "All That She Wants."
And now an Ace of Base song will be running through your head for the rest of the day. You're welcome.
