Loitered Lens : Dead Kennedys

The fathers of American punk showed the kids at Koko (and their parents) that there is still plenty to be angry about.

While the headline “We shot Dead Kennedys” may start raising flags on CIA and NSA watch lists, our photos show that although some of the Kennedys may be dead (possibly at the hands of the aforementioned agencies), punk is still very much alive.

The fathers of American punk showed the kids at Koko (and their parents) that there is still plenty to be angry about and their music still reflects that attitude. Age has not wearied them.
