The Dead Kennedys roared to life in the late 1970s: their left-wing political stance, shock tactics, and messages of rebellion against corruption stirred everybody up, including Tipper Gore and her pack of conservative music-banning buddies. This book focuses on the band from its conception through its breakup in the mid-1980s, and includes reproductions of flyers, promo shots, snippets of interviews, lyrics, and rare photos. Lead singer Jello Biafra's candidacy in the 1979 San Francisco mayoral race is also entertainingly detailed. Published by Last Gasp of San Francisco, 1983.
