Despite many setbacks, the Creativity message survived in the skinhead scene in large part because of George Burdi. George Eric Burdi, a young Canadian musician from Canada, drew inspiration from Creativity and formed a band called RAHOWA named after an acronym Klassen had coined that stands for RAcial HOly WAr. It is meant to be a call to arms not unlike the Arabic word jihad used by Islamic militants. With Burdi's rise to prominence in the 1990s, some observers saw in him the potential to be the seminal figure of the white nationalist movement of the decade. In order to disseminate their music, in 1993, Burdi and Mark Wilson launched their most successful enterprise — Resistance Records — a recording company that produced CDs for white power bands. At one time, Burdi saw the skinheads as the vanguard of the racialist movement. Their lack of finesse only added to their authenticity.
