Dead Kennedys, an American punk rock band formed in San Francisco in 1978, was one of the first American hardcore bands to make a huge impact in the UK where they will be rocking again in June with some special guests! Their name does not connect directly with the Kennedy family but with their tragedies that paint the end of the "American Dream". As true punk rockers, their provocative, controversial and polotical lyrics are satirizing all kinds of political figures and authority in general, as well as popular culture and at some points the punk movement itself. Because of these engaging attitudes, the media named them American Sex Pistols. With their first album, Fresh Fruits for Vegetables released in 1980, Dead Kennedys along with Scottish The Exploited and British U.K.Subs became leading punk band of their generation, and together with Ramones the most significant American punk band.
