Halloween - Dead Kennedys (1982)

"Halloween" (B-side "Saturday Night Holocaust") is the seventh and final single by the Dead Kennedys. It was released in December 1982 on Alternative Tentacles. The lyrics use the metaphor of a Halloween party to address the theme of human responses to nonconformity.The song is from the band's second album, Plastic Surgery Disasters.

Happy Halloween you punks...

Def my favorite Halloween cut Aaron. Kinda embodies both the "feel" of the season while making a poignant social commentary at the same time.

What's not to like?

Have a good one!!!

There are so many great songs on "Plastic Surgery Disasters". It's my personal favorite by DK.

I actually had the honor of meeting Jello Biafra after seeing him at a spoken word event. It's a shame that more people don't appreciate what he has to say in regards to politics and social commentary. As far as I'm concerned, Jello Biafra did for punk rock what Dr. Hunter S. Thompson did for journalism.
