5.0 out of 5 stars Never Mind The Soap Opera, This Is Some Good Music July 23, 2002
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars DKs 2nd best. Buy it on ANY label. June 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

Format:Audio CD
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)

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not here to learn, i just want to get drunk... November 9, 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Dead Kennedys July 4, 2007
By Gogol
Format:Audio CD
Ok first off I am not interested in all the controversy about the ex band member.

I heard all the BS about them and know full well about their "Rock and Coke" festival in Turkey (Dead Kennedys rock and Coke....please) Though in saying that not much of a fan of post DK Jello churning out LP after LP saying the same boring meaningless rant for the kids (yeh he may go on about the ex band members milking the DK's name for profit but can he realy say he is doing any different with his endless Jello Biafra and the blah blah band albums?)

Anyway, rant over. DK were/are one of my all time favorite band from way back before any tv ad or whatever and this is one of my all time favorite LPs. DK were great because they could mix politics with good music and humour as well. They didnt rant but just took the p*** out of the powers that be. Some of these tracks (such as bleed for me, I am the owl) need to be heard by kids today.

Great to hear, never mind the BS over the ex band members. Leave them to fight it out amongst themselves. Me, I will just keep the memories of a great band.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's not about he-said/they-said. It's about sound. Avoid this.
I owned copies of "Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death" on cassette (AT) and CD (Manifesto). The Manifesto re-releases sound awful -- tinny and clippy and bright. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Best DK?
It's a tossup between this and Fresh Fruit on which is best, but this one seems to have more in the way of agression and musical experimentation. Both get 5 stars nonetheless.
