Dead Kennedys - Bedtime for Democracy


The DK were one of the most important bands in the history of punk rock. Alongside Black Flag, these dudes were singlehandedly responsible for the creation of Hardcore and punk as we know it today. Without them there wouldn't be a punk scene today. BFD is the last recorded output from this classic lineup released in December 1986 just months before they split up for good. Sadly it is also a much underrated and forgotten piece of work due to the classic Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegtables grabbing most of the limelight and as a result has received relativley mixed reviews. This is a real shame as it is well worth checking out. 'Take this job and shove it' warrenting its purchase alone. Musically and attitude wise it resembles the 'In god we trust Inc' EP. Very political, very anti-Regan (Like most HC bands of that time), but also with a great satirical bite. Jello's clever and insightful lyrics helped kids to take more interest in political
matters which they otherwise wouldn't have taken much notice in. So whether or not you care about the politics (I don't), you should pick up this album (and the rest!) from this classic band.
