History & Biography:
Original DEAD KENNEDYS San Francisco Punk Band- Late 70's early 80's with Jello Biafra, later a Green Party Presidential candidate.Wikipedia: "Dead Kennedys are an American punk rock band that formed in San Francisco, California, in 1978. Dead Kennedys' lyrics were usually political in nature, satirizing establishment political figures (both liberal and conservative) and authority in general, as well as popular culture and even the punk movement itself. During their initial incarnation between 1978 and 1986, they attracted considerable controversy for their provocative lyrics and artwork. Several stores refused to stock their recordings, provoking debate about censorship in rock music; in the mid 1980s, vocalist and primary lyricist Jello Biafra became an active campaigner against the Parents Music Resource Center. This culminated in an obscenity trial between 1985 and 1986, which resulted in a hung jury."
Jello Biafra was lead singer and songwriter for the San Francisco punk rock band Dead Kennedys. Politically, Biafra is a member of the Green Party and actively supports various political causes. He ran for the party's Presidential nomination in 2000, finishing a distant second to Ralph Nader. He is a staunch believer in a free society, and utilizes shock value and advocates direct action and pranksterism in the name of political causes. Biafra is known to use absurdist media tactics, in the leftist tradition of the Yippies, to highlight issues of civil rights and social justice.
AMERICANA HISTORY: Campaign buttons and ribbons are used in the United States during an election as political advertising for (or against) a candidate or political party, or to proclaim the issues that are part of the political platform. Political buttons date as far back as President George Washington. They have taken many forms as the technology to create an image and mass production has allowed. In the late 18th and first half of the 19th century they were sewn-on clothing buttons, whereas the modern forms typically have pins on the back and are therefore also called pin-back buttons. Campaign buttons bear some similarity to bumper stickers, which are also used for political and other promotional messages.
