Just a comment on David H's view about the symbol out of context. I think it was Biafra's intention that it be used this way. The original 7" single included an armband with the symbol on it. You can hear his frustration with the morons in the audience giving the Nazi salute, on Live at The Deaf Club.
I came here to say what David H said. I've been kind of a punk off and on my whole life and I've seen a few variations on the "no Nazis" thing. It comes from the DKs song, and from the phenomenon that song was reacting to, namely the unfortunate existence of a subculture of skinhead punks that normal, anarchistic egalitarian punks don't like very much at all.
I'm only half way through but thought I'd fill in where the 'crossed out swastika' comes from - it's from a Dead Kennedys single 'Nazi Punks Fuck Off', which was about what you'd imagine. It's a bit strange to take it out of context and put it on your car, though. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_Punks_Fuck_Off
