Some songs used by the Nazis are very old, and so these songs are often thought of as to be a Nazi song. An example would be Deutschlandlied, which was written in 1841. The Nazis used the Deutschlandlied with the Horst-Wessel-Lied. Same with the song Die Wacht am Rhein, which at that time was almost 100 years old.
The Horst-Wessel-Lied, also known as Die Fahne Hoch (The flag on high), was the anthem of the Nazi Party. The song was made by Horst Wessel, a SA leader, who was killed by a member of the Communist Party of Germany. The song, as with many Nazi songs, is banned in Germany.
