When I was 16, in an attempt to turn me “punk,” some older friends loaned me a stack of their albums. I started bumping The Misfits, Bad Religion and The Decedents in my Volvo, but the Dead Kennedys never caught on. Now listening to the 25th
anniversary re-release of the band's first album, I wonder why. Maybe it was because they loaned me Frankenchrist
. Anyway, if you don't already own this album, here's your chance to buy a deluxe edition that includes a DVD with a documentary about the band's beginnings, the making of this first album and Jello Biafra's run for mayor. And by the way, down with hippies.
