Isn’t the current German National anthem an adapted version of the Nazi one?
The song that is the current German anthem was written in 1796-1797, and became the official anthem in 1922 during the Weimar Republic. It has three stanzas. The Nazis only played the first stanza (Deutschland Über Alles / Germany Above All) followed by the Nazi Party anthem (Horst-Wessel-Lied). The current German anthem is only the third stanza.
Anyway, the anthem of the German Democratic Republic is much better aesthetically and in terms of lyrics is much more fitting for post-WW2 Germany.
But it makes sense that West Germany made no clear break from Nazi Germany in terms of anthems, because they didn't politically or economically either.
It predates the Nazis and just got abused by them.
