The cd also has In God We Trust Inc which is an upside.

Jello Biafra managed to give a different intonation to each and every line.

Before the Dead Kennedys broke ground in 1979, American punk was a bunch of whiney, no talented, Iggy Pop wannabes. Then, with the realese of their first album, FRESH FRUIT FOR ROTTING VEGETABLES, the DKs created a new world of awareness and surprise in the American Punk Community.
With their second Album, PLASTIC SURGERY DISASTERS, DK continued to change punk by adding a whole new type of music. It wasn't the traditional three chords and chaos punk brought back from England and shown in america by bands like The Germs and X (which are some of the best punk bands of all time). Instead it was creative, ear catching, and emotinaly stimulating. Their smart, sarcastic political views alone make this one worht while. And the addition of their E.P. IN GOD WE TRUST, INC. makes it all the better.
This Album is both hilarious and scary. It is one of the best punk albums by one of the best punk bands. They did for America what the Sex Pistols did for England: created a whole new land of chaotic dreams for the dis-interested youth.

Oh man, if you don't have this CD and you like punk, I envy you because you can listen to it for the first time. THIS CD ROCKS! You won't find better punk anywhere, just try listening to Buzzbomb without banging your head around, or any other track on here for that matter. BUY IT!

This record is truly wonderful. You have great lyrics, fast and furious (for then) riffing, and the most mind-blowing collection of atmospheres and well... "textures" I've ever heard on a punk record. You should go ahead and buy it.
Jello Biafra managed to give a different intonation to each and every line. A good example is the saccharine 'Oh, you poor, poor thing' tone he uses in Buzzbomb to describe 'The lonely salesman' which turns into angry disgust when, in the very next line, he points out that the same lonely salesman is actually wanking in the men's room. There's the growing realization and desperation that marks the end of "Riot", where the character is left homeless but pathetically grabs on to the fact that the riot at least "was a blast", etc, etc. This is NOT a guy who shouts out the lyrics as best he can. This guy's a REAL singer who wants to communicate an idea, act out a story.
East Bay Ray threw in wonderful 60s surf/TV series guitar riffs everywhere and seemed to float effortlessly over the chaos and anger of the music and the sound itself is large, open and well... airy. Very odd and refreshing for a punk record and one of my favourite LPs. It's as close as punk has gotten to actual tone poetry, where a song is not **about** something, but IS something.

Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
The Dead Kennedys' third album is one of those great punk albums up there with Funhouse by The Stooges, that never get old.

Its hardcore but not formulated, generic thrash (they do plenty of that on In God We Trust Inc and Bedtime For Democracy). Behind the noise their are hints of psychedelic, rockabilly, surf, jazz, and even funk. But over all, I'd call it hardcore mixed with classic punk. Side a contains the faster songs, while side b has some of the comparativly more midtempo, longer songs creating 2 distinct moods.

The guitar switches between power chords and high pitched Syd Barrett-esque guitar over top of low basslines. The drums are mostly fast and high energy but more laid back when needed.

The vocals and lyrics are the highlight here. American society is completly ripped apart while its evilness is exposed. Each song is written from the point of view of either the villian or the someone playing into the villian's hands, each time showing the stupidity of the protaginists. This serves as great music to relate to whether you're just sick of society or you're into political protests or debates.

The upside to buying this on vinyl is the booklet that comes with it. It has a different 2 to 3 page collage for each song plus all the lyrics at the end. The cd has a smaller version which is still cool. The cd also has In God We Trust Inc which is an upside.

I got the original lp version on Alternative Tentacles. I heard the new version is remixed to sound cleaner and the art work is cut up. I haven't seen or heard it though. I think its a shame the other band members sued Jello and pulled the album from AT Records. Granted, they weren't paid all their royalties and were owed money due to accounting errors.

Plastic Surgery Disaster and In God we Trust Inc. are truly classic punk albums. The songs are meaningful, intelligent, and sometimes very frightening. But that just sums up DK in general. These guys are undesrcibably awesome, with pounding guitars courtesy of Ray and Klaus, remarkeble drumming, and of course Jello Biafra. He is the ultimate songwriter and his chilling voice fits well with the great punk tunes. 'Buzzbomb from Pasedena' has gotta be my favorite track on this cd, but its hard to choose a favorite with so many great songs. 'Government Flu' has great, head-banging music, 'Terminal Preppy' showcases Jello's songwriting talent, and 'Moral Majority' is just a good-hearted, pleasant little Christian song. They all rock though.
