Dead Kennedys

Profile:
Legendary punk band hailing from San Francisco, formed in 1978 & fronted by Jello Biafra (Eric Boucher). They split up in the mid-80s, and there has been animosity between Jello and the rest of the band since the late '90s, with recent court case awarding all the rights to all the songs to the rest of the band.

The best punk rock band, period. The Clash? Nah, self-indulgent. DKs every time.

Rednecks tried to kill Jello Biafra in Portland for a reason. They tried to run him over with a truck and he had to hide in a phone booth. They knocked it over and tried to run him over. I know people that were there and saw it.

You wanna talk life changing, imagine seeing that!

I don´t like the Stuff Biafra did later but I don´t like the later works of the DK (with Biafra/not to speak of without) eather. But I really admire and love the old works of them up to 1982. But I know that those days won´t come back, not eaven musically and I wouldn´t like to see that great band playing the usual rock soup, made out of their own songs. With a bunch of teachers and students around in the audience

It would be good if East Bay Ray and Jello re-united and did one last album and tour as Dead Kennedys before one of them dies.

An incredibly important band, both as punk pioneers, and as a group whose lyrics probably woke an entire demographic up to politics and social issues, so important that they had to be sued out of existence. Their sound is unique and abrasive; even if you like punk rock, these guys are a love em/hate em band. But for those of us who love them, the devotion is unbreakable.
