This is my favorite Dead Kennedy's release. I will side-step the DK's current soap opera for a moment to review this disc. First of all, the Dead Kennedys were probably one of the most well-round, musically talented bands to emerge from the punk scene in the early '80's. East Bay Ray, Klaus Flouride, and D.H. Peligro were some of the best musicians ever to be called punk rock. No one else sounded like the Dead Kennedys. The "In God We Trust, Inc." EP was the DK's nod to DC-style hardcore. Its filled with hyperspeed jams that, unlike much of the hardcore that was emerging, is filled with great riffs and, despite the speed, just a great sense of what makes a good song,not just simple 3 chord verses and sing-along chorus. The jazz into to "We Got A Bigger Problem Now". "Plastic Surgery Disasters" is again filled with hyperspeed thrash, but its also tempered with influences of surf (especially "Moon Over Marin") and spaghetti western music (just listen to "Winnebago Warrior"). The fact that the group wrote much of this album as a whole is probably to a big reason for that. All throughout, Jello Biafra's lyrics are smart and funny.

Please, people, don't kill yourself trying to find a used Alternative Tentacles version, it's just not worth the time. The music is still awesome, no matter WHAT label it's on. This is the 2nd best DK album, right behind Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables.
This is a really good album to get if you're new to the DKs. It's extremely diverse, ranging from long, slowed-down punk opuses ("Moon Over Marin", "I am the owl") to extreme hardcore 1-minute-or-less songs ("Religious Vomit", "Moral Majority"). As always, Jello's lyrics are absolutely divine, targeting everything from organized religion ("Moral Majority") to fear of self-expression ("Halloween"). If you're into punk/hardcore and you don't own any DK albums, you don't know what you're missing. Or, if you're into the DKs and you don't own this, you should definitely pick it up. The only DK record that tops this is Fresh Fruit.
The DKs are my favorite punk band of all time and I highly recommend this album.

Well, first I want to say that this whole thing with people saying not to buy this because it's not on Alternative Tentacles and because Jello was sued by the other 3 members is getting really annoying. I do feel for Jello, believe me, I do! I also think it's sleazy that the three ex-kennedys sued so they could put songs into a commercial and a video game. But please, try to be a little open-minded here. I have all the Dead Kennedys cd's on Manifesto. Why? Because I'm a corporate sellout who wants to destroy music? NO! Because the Alternative Tentacles versions are out of print and I don't see why I should have to search the globe for used copies when I can find perfectly good versions in a music store right across the street from where I work. It shouldn't matter what record label it's on, it's still the same great music. You still have the angry thrash fury of Government Flu, Well Paid Scientist, and Riot. You still have the venomous sarcasm of Bleed For Me, Halloween, and I Am The Owl. You still have the soaring beauty of Moon Over Marin. You also still have the fiery hardcore of the In God We Trust Inc. ep. So please quit being so whiny and self-righteous and let people buy whatever version they want or can of this Dead Kennedys cd and the others so they can still hear the greatness of this band without having to feel that it might be wrong because the version they bought was rereleased by...Uh oh! Sellouts!!! Oooh!(Notice my sarcasm)

Has anyone heard the story of "Adam" from WWII.It is so weird I do not know whether to believe it or just ignore it.Why can't people just let go of the "war stories".Ha ha ha (Laughing) He he he (more laughter). I have never seen it with my own eyes, WWII. ?? All of these different kinds of music, does it need to be so violent.My music is about "Peace and Love".

For all those who are afraid about poor quality read.
Does it sound different? Yes, noise is removed, and it does give it a different sound. Does it sound worse? Subjective, I personally have my pros and cons, but it doesn't sound bad. For those who feel the audio has been clipped, I have run several tracks through Audacity and to my surprise THERE IS NO CLIPPING. It may appear that way because they really amplified it, but no clipping (at least judging purely from the analysis of the audio present). I ran it through a sampling test to find the clipped tracks with other artists such as modern music like Neon Trees's "Animal" and Rev Theory's "Hell Yeah," only to find many parts clipped. So please, we may all be upset about Jello and the Dead Kennedys, but don't turn away you young listeners or others who are new just because of a grudge about something that will most likely remain unchanged... sadly.

A few months ago my friend introduced me to Dead Kennedys by showing me a few of their songs (Police Truck and Chemical Warfare to name a few). After hearing those that night, I had to run to my local used record store to pick me up some DK. Luckily I was able to find used copies of "Fresh Fruit" (on Cherry Red Records) and "Plastic Surgery Disasters/In God We Trust Inc" (on Alternative Tentacles). This one is my favorite of the 2 definately. My favorite songs on "Plastic Surgery" are Terminal Preppie, Buzzbomb, and Well Paid Scientist. Forest Fire is worth hearing too just for lead singer Jello Biafra's lyrics about eating weird berries in the woods and starting forest fires. In God We Trust Inc is DK at their fastest. Highlights are the anti-religion rant Religious Vomit, Nazi Punks [...] Off, and their shortest song yet Hyperactive Child. The reworking of California Uber Alles is very cool too. This and "Fresh Fruit" are both essential purchases. Buy them now if you haven't already.
