Dead Kennedys - Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables

Dead Kennedys - Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables. It takes some folks a few listens to get used to Jello Biafra's, um, unique voice, but once the DK bug infects you, there is no cure. As their first LP, FFFRV is the ultimate in barely controlled, angry, funny, socially aware punk rock. It contains the classics Drug Me, Holiday in Cambodia, California Uber Alles, and Chemical Warfare. All the other songs are good, too.

He is not a dead Kennedy, he is *the* Dead Kennedy. Ladies and gentlement, this is Jello Biafra….

Dead Kennedys / Formed in the volatile San Francisco punk scene of the late 1970s, the Dead Kennedys became one of the West Coast's most visible punk bands, pioneering hardcore. Fueled by a cutting political preoccupation, lead singer Jello Biafra's quavering vocals conveyed the excess that marked such songs as "Drug Me" and "California Über Alles." Biafra and company directed diatribes against the Moral Majority, creeping U.S. imperialism and fascism. #punk
