The Dead Kennedys

Pretty much the original US hardcore punk band - certainly the biggest. Highly political but with very amusing stories to tell in amongst it all. Were forced into splitting up following numerous court cases involving alledged distribution of harmful material to minors, orchestrated mainly by the dreaded PMRC led by Vice President Gores wife Tipper.
