Best Bay Area Albums Of All Time: #5

Dead Kennedys’ Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables stands as one of the essential punk albums, Bay Area or otherwise. The album cover, depicting the riots following the Milk/Moscone assassinations in San Francisco, sums up the album’s content perfectly--this is an album that viciously attacks nearly every political issue in late-Seventies/early-Eighties California with fury, musical brutality, and, above all, a sharp sense of humor.
