Song of the Day: Dead Kennedys – “Government Flu”

Happy birthday wishes go out to former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra, who turns 60 years old today. This track is one of several killer songs off the band’s second album Plastic Surgery Disasters and kicks off the album after an opening interlude. It kicks off with a crunching guitar intro before kicking into Jello’s hyperactive lyrics about the US government dumping viruses in the water supply in an attempt to test their effectiveness as a biological weapon to be used against Russia. Far from his craziest song, but vintage Biafra nonetheless.
