American punk rock band Dead Kennedys released their first album, Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables. Among their most popular songs are “Holiday In Cambodia” and “Police Truck.”
The original lead singer, Jello Biafra, ran for mayor of San Francisco in 1979, finishing fourth out of ten. His slogan was, “There’s always room for Jello,” and his platform included a requirement that businessmen would have to wear clown suits.
The best part about being a businessman in a clown suit? A nametag that squirts water.
