Dead Kennedys is a legendary punk band that originated from San Francisco in 1978. Led by Jello Biafra (Eric Boucher), the band gained prominence for their rebellious and politically charged music. Despite their success, the group disbanded in the mid-80s due to internal conflicts.
In the late '90s, tensions between Jello and the rest of the band escalated, resulting in an ongoing animosity. A recent court case ruled in favor of the remaining members, granting them full rights to all of Dead Kennedys' songs.
With their influential presence in punk rock history, Dead Kennedys continue to be recognized as pioneers of the genre and have left an indelible mark on music culture.
