Frontman for political punk band The Dead Kennedys. Jello is a huge corporation that makes non-nutritional foods. Basically food that you don't need. Biafra was a place in Africa that doesn't have any food, and suffers of mass starvation. Atleast it once was, I'm not sure if it still exists. Jello Biafra was put together for the irony. They're starving, we spend millions on food that hurts us more than helps us.
Jello Biafra is a very politcal, yet humurous person.

lead singer of the dead kennedys from their formation in 1978 to their break up in 1986. he wrote a great deal of the lyrics, and is quite possibly the most influential front man in punk history. jello was politically active in the san francisco area for several years, and almost won the election for mayor. currently, jello sits as the president of his record label 'alternative tentacles' and travels around the country on spoken word tours that attack ultra-conservative politicians, free speech bashers, and terminal preppies. this guy is the shit!
jello biafra got his name by combining the completely malnutritious sugary food (jello) with one of the world's most impoverished and hungry nations (biafra).

The lead singer of the bay area punk band, The Dead Kennedys, who's material included some of the most groundbreaking and intelligent music I have ever heard. This is because of Jello Biafra. That man is politically and intellectually informed. And funny while at it. Although the Dead Kennedys were during the Reagan era, his views still speak strong today, and today he works actively for change. Go research the guy, he OWNS YOU.
