I'm not expecting them, but are there any other Dead Kennedys fans on here?

I was skeptical of them at first, because of the whole punk-snob-integrity-sellout-album-must-not-sell-over-three-hundred-copies-thing I tend to get from their fans, but Jesus CHRIST this band is awesome. I got their album Give Me Convenience Or Give Me Death. Jello Biafra has this fucking amazing voice, and I almost split my sides laughing at "Night of the Living Rednecks".

And I fail to understand why East Bay Ray does not show up on any of those great guitarist lists.

I am a man who enjoys his Jello.

The raspberry kind is the best, though.

I was heavily into the Dead Kennedys when I was in high school. I liked the band name and I had a large "subway" poster of the album cover with Jesus crucified on a dollar bill with a upc symbol above his head. I still listen to the Jello Biafra/Mojo Nixon album "Prairie Home Invasion" cd when I feel the need to recharge my cynicism. Especially the songs "Nostalgia for an Age That Never Existed" and "Will the Fetus Be Aborted". I also loved the cartoons by Tom Tomorrow and the collage of clippings that made up the booklets to their cds. Full of weird shit that was too odd to make up, it could only happen in America. For instance, an article from Brooklyn Center, Minnesota reads, "Sex. Child abuse. Incest. Prostitution. Topics unfit for children, right? Right, says Gene Kasmar. That's why he wants the school district to take THE BIBLE out of the schools. He says there are frequent biblical references to concubines, explicit sex, child abuse, incest, scatology, wine, nakedness and mistreatment of women. The Bibles passages, he added, 'have no historical, scientific, literary, artistic, or political value. They would be offensive to even the average adult and only have appeal to prurient interests"

Only in America.

I was too...I found out in a kind of weird way.
I was complaining how there were dead ants in our salt and she said, "AT LEAST WE DONT HAVE DEAD KENNEDYS IN OUT SALT! AAHAHAH!" and I just looked at her dumbfounded.
apparently she worked at a place wehre they had a gig once and she stuck around.
amazing.

Ah, the dessert's good too, and I do question the sanity ofanyone who would call themselves "Jello"...

Actually, his name is Eric. I know this because I read an article in which Jello/Eric talks about when he was ten or eleven and some Air Force pilot came to talk at his school. He raised his hand and asked how it felt to blow up Vietnamese babies.

His teacher came up with some dumb excuse like, "Oh...you see Eric reads a lot of newspapers!"

LMFAO.
