I find it confusing how you can consider the Königgrätzer more offensive than the Badenweiler. The former is, as some have stated before, a prussian march composed in 1866, the other one in 1914 for the bavarian army - nothing offensive yet imo. Now, the Badenweiler was Hitler's personal favourite march and thus is forbidden to be played by music corps of german army, police and whatsoever. So if I'd find one of them disturbing, it would be the second. I wouldn't find "Hänsel und Gretel verliefen sich im Wald" disturbing if they'd played it in Indiana Jones and the last Crusade while burning books, if you know what I mean.

I dont feel Badenweiler should be banned for that reason , if bratwurst was his favorite food should it be banned also ? the actual SA and SS marches is a different story of course

I don't have a problem with either of them, I was just playing devils advocate. I did that poll a couple of weeks ago and it showed that most players were European, that being said I thought there would be at least a little "friction" from the song. I'm glad thats not the case :)

I see, Spencer. ;) And @Stefan F, yeah, I agree with you. As said, it's not generally forbidden, but it's not really played in public, as it's sometimes done in marching bands in Belgium/Netherlands, don't which of both it was. But your argument is correct, though I'm happy bratwurst wasn't his favourite food. I can't imagine what to feed on if it was banned. :D
