EDITORS’ NOTES

Released just a year after Dead Kennedys’ original breakup, Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death compiles plenty of the iconic punk band’s sardonic sing-alongs ("California Über Alles," "Holiday in Cambodia"), highlighting their sharp musical acumen and subversive humour. The set also contains several rarities, including their music industry–indicting New Wave spoof "Pull My Strings" (captured here in its only performance) and their definitive update of "I Fought the Law."
