Inspired by Iceland President's Address from Inspired By Iceland
All The President's Men...
Reminds me of this:
The third cause for controversy was Þeyr's decision to perform in full Nazi regalia. Contrary to most of the other bands in the doc, Þeyr weren’t filmed during a concert. Instead, an ‘acted’ ‘music video’ was used to present the band. It shows the members goose step in Nazi gear towards the Icelandic president's house at Bessastaðir in-between shots of them rocking out in their rehearsal space (which was conveniently located at Álftanes, right next to Bessastaðir). Their Nazi get-up spurred the heated debate "Are Þeyr Nazis on top of being snobs?" The band of course denied all Nazi accusations. They did it ambivalently though, using the old "it was a joke" explanation.

In 2004 the band Trabant performed @ the President's home.

But not everybody likes the President. Some artist made an album cover showing half Grimsson/half Adolf Hitler.
The previous president of Iceland Vigdis was a great Sugarcubes fan, like a French minister...
Those were the days!
