Easily my favorite hardcore punk band, close to being my favorite punk band in general. IMO they perfectly straddled the line between edgy and whiny in their commentary while maintaining the humor of it all
LOL, "tumblrinas" would be calling for Jello's head for a lot of the shit he did, said and wrote, just as the paper-thin-skinned religious right would. Jello has always taken shots at corporate neoliberal "lefitsts" just like he's mocked the dipshits who worship Reagan and think the Bible is the literal word of God. And if there's been a time where he or the other DKs said they were "offended" by harsh language or sought to restrict the usage of coarse language/their freedom of expression, I'm certainly not aware of it. But don't let reality get in the way of a tepid "hot" take.
One of the best punk bands ever. There's hardly any band that matches the musical ingenuity and the level of lyrical cleverness in the way of satire as this band, not to mention there's hardly ever been such a weird and enigmatic frontman/singer as Jello Biafra. Classic of a punk band as there's ever been. The fact that they knew when to call it quits is also quite great. Unlike so many bands, they have no duds in their discography - but instead few masterpieces and few great punk-albums.
Мертвые Кеннеди - это культ, мощь и разрыв ебла. Просто дичайший по качеству хардкор, особенно их шедевр Plastic Surgery Disasters. Ну а то, что Биафра до сих пор непримиримый левак, ясно иллюстрирует, кто истинная легенда и бог хардкор-панка (если не панка вообще).
