Dead Kennedys were formed in San Fransisco, California in 1978, with Jello Biatra, Jeff Penalty, Brandon Cruz, TED and 6025, currently with East Bay Ray, Klaus Flouride and DH Peligro . Dead Kennedys released five studio albums before officially disbanding in 1986. In 2001, the band reformed without original singer Jello Biafra, who had been in a legal dispute with the other members over royalties. The band will play three dates in October 2010. On one of the dates, they debuted two of their first new songs since 1986, "Area 51" and "You're Such a Fake". Since the dissolution of Dead Kennedys, Biafra has continued to collaborate and record with other artists, including Mojo Nixon, Al Jourgenson of Ministry, and The Melvins, and has gone on to be a spoken word, covering political topics in particular. They are famous for their single 'Holiday in Cambodia' which also had a place in a famous game called 'Guitar Hero III'.
