(Metal Hammer) Former Pantera bassist Rex Brown explains the band's use of the Confederate flag and says that he regrets using it because it has been misunderstood in today's "PC" environment.

Pantera included the flag on the rear of their 1996 album The Great Southern Trendkill and also displayed it as part of their live stage displays. In a new interview with Rolling Stone to promote Joe Giron's upcoming photo book A Vulgar Display Of Pantera, Brown says: "The Confederate flag is on the back cover of The Great Southern Trendkill. That was the 'Southern' part of it.

"There were still states that had that on their state flags. Nowadays it's forbidden to use it. It's not so politically correct. But it had nothing to do with racism. None of us were like that.

"It was just a tie-in to the artwork on the back cover. Lynyrd Skynyrd used one for years and still do. Now people confuse it with racism and hatred. That's not what this band is about at all, quite the opposite. But it's the only thing I would say in the 'PC' days that I have any regrets about." Read more here.
