Dead Kennedys

 

After forming in 1978, the Dead Kennedys merged revolutionary merged revolutionary with hardcore punk music, and in the process, became one of the defining bands of hardcore punk. Often, they were more notable for their political anecdotes than music, as seen in songs like “Holiday in Cambodia” and “I am the Owl.” The band released their first album- Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables- in 1979.

In January, I saw Dead Kennedys lead singer, Jello Biafra perform at The Observatory. Here’s Jello singing “Too Drunk to Fuck” with The Reverend Horton Heat

 

And here’s a video of “Police Truck” from the 1987 album, Give Me Convenience of Give Me Death.
