A band that definitive of Bay Area punk. It doesn't get any better than this.
The Dead Kennedys are dead without Jello.

Take a look at the left side of politics.

Now look at the right side.

Now picture four angry punks right in the middle, flipping off both parties.
That's the Dead Kennedys in a nutshell.

Extremely controversial Californian punk rock band. Used satirical and humourous lyrics to express their political views. The Kennedys split in 1986 and the band ensued in a legal tussle with vocalist Jello Biafra over song royalties. An incarnation of the Kennedys still tours today, but without Jello Biafra.
The Dead Kennedys are a real punk band, unlike the Casualties.

One of the most original and ground-breaking bands of all time. Jello Biafro is my god.

Dead Kennedys hit the stage and it's time to get lit up! Genius lyrics, guy, that's all I'm saying about one of the best bloody punk bands ever! These guys put all the brit punks to shame! They were there to tell you what time it is politically. They blew up the spot from their birth in 1978 to their break up in 1986. Twenty years later their Reagan era lyrics are still relevant in Bush Jr's time. Blow baby blow!
My favourite songs have to be:
Holiday in Cambodia
California Uber Alles
Chemical Warfare
Religious Vomit
Moral Majority
We've Got A Bigger Problem Now
