Dead Kennedys

When asked what their favorite punk band could be, people are going to have a wide range of answers. Often, this answer is parallel to the generation in which one grew up. For me, it is undeniable- Dead Kennedys are by-and-large the greatest and most influential. Jello Biafra, East Bay Ray, Klaus Flouride, and 6025 made up the original lineup. Their lyrics were strewn with social and political commentary that set the tone for my most formidable years growing up in socially and politically conservative South Carolina.
