The Top Ten

1 Holiday in Cambodia

One of my favorite albums honestly. This album is straight up a punk classic.
This is their most popular song. While not my favorite I figured this is a good choice for #1 - cjWriter1997

2 Chemical Warfare

The intro alone makes it deserve 2nd place (I still prefer Holiday in Cambodia) - kempokid

This is my personal favorite song by Dead Kennedys. - cjWriter1997

3 California Uber Allies

Another one of their most popular songs. This one has a very iconic punk bassline - cjWriter1997

4 Kill the Poor

The opening track is a very tongue and cheek dark humor track that is so fun to sing along with. Just don't sing this in public. - cjWriter1997

Who knew that a song about poverty cleansing could sound so fun? - Gg2000

5 I Kill Children

Very much full of dark humor. Again, don't sing this one in public either - cjWriter1997

6 Viva Las Vegas

This is a cover of the Elvis Presley song. Knowing the band, it's more satirical but it's still an awesome cover. I like it better than the original - cjWriter1997

7 Forward to Death

"I don't need this f-ing world" - cjWriter1997

8 When Ya Get Drafted
9 Let's Lynch the Landlord
