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.

Get a Dead kennedys mug for your guy Nathalie.
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.

Get a dead kennedys mug for your buddy Georges.
The greatest goddamn punk band ever to walk the earth, and proof that all good things must come to an end. Active from the late-70s to mid-80s, the Dead Kennedys consisted of vocalist Jello Biafra, guitarist East Bay Ray, drummer D.H. Peligro, and bassist Klaus Flouride. Producing five studio albums, the Dead Kennedys wrote songs that still ring true in this day and age
"MTV get off the air...NOW!"- Dead Kennedys, 1985
"Amen to that"- all intelligent people worldwide, 2010

"The law don't mean shit if you've got the right friends, that's how this country's run." Dead Kennedys, from their version of "I Fought the Law", rewritten about the Moscone-Milk assassinations.
