Frank Rennicke is a German folk singer, born 18 December 1964 in Braunschweig in Niedersachsen, Germany. His songs are based on his nationalist and arguably national socialist views, all performed by himself. He was a member of the national socialist organization Wiking-Jugend until it was banned in 1994, after which he became a member of the National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD). In 1996 the far right activist Torsten Lemmer published the book Sänger für Deutschland: Die Biographie des Volkssängers Frank Rennicke (Singer for Germany: The Biography of the Folk Singer Frank Rennicke).
On October 16, 2002, Frank Rennicke and his wife Ute were sentenced to 17 and 5 months in prison, respectively, for the lyrics of Rennicke's songs, and her refusal to dissociate herself from Rennicke's music.
