Dead Kennedy’s — Holiday In Cambodia

With their sarcastic and ironic lyrics, this band expressed their point of view on the 80’s society and politics and created controversy wherever they went, in fact, due to the controvertial name, there were sometimes that the band had to use different names during gigs, and some of their artwork albums where banned or censored as well. But that’s what punk was about, to go against everything, whether it was politics, religion, consumerism or society rules.
And well, this song is no exception, it compares the 80’s lifestyle of young Americans with the Pol Pot regime in Cambodia. 

This was the first song by the Dead Kennedy’s I ever listened and one of their most famous ones too. Like it or not, songs like this make people think.

Untill next Thursday!

Viu.
