Punk rock band from San Francisco, California. Stridently political, their leader Jello Biafra was also responsible for releasing many other punk and alternative bands on his Alternative Tentacles label.
For the last few years, former band members have been involved in a vigorous legal wrangle over the use of Dead Kennedys songs in advertising.
An overview of their career may be found on the compilation "Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death".--- Dead Kennedy Family Members
