The Dead Kennedys
We’ve Got a Bigger Problem Now
Holiday in Cambodia
I know a lot of people think Jello Biafra is a “sellout”, and that he was sued by the other members of the Dead Kennedys in ’98, but damn when the Dead Kennedys got it right no one sounded like them.
These two videos prove why the Dead Kennedys were one of the best hardcore punk bands ever.
When Jello Biafra ran for mayor of San Francisco in 1979 some of his platform points were:
1). Businessmen be forced to wear clown suits within city limits.
2). Legal squatting in vacant tax delinquent buildings.
3). Police officers be forced to run for their jobs like politicians with voters coming from the neighborhoods they patrolled.
In my mind, that makes up for any of Biafra’s past/future transgressions. Brilliant.
