Slideshow with my Dead Kennedys pics and the song "kill the poor".

Kill the Poor" was the third single by the Dead Kennedys. The record was released in October 1980 on Cherry Red Records with "In-sight" as the b-side. The title track was re-recorded for the band's first album, Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables (1980), although the single and album versions show little difference in comparison. The b-side of this single is also additionally on the compilation album Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death (1987)

Biafra's high school had a rigorous acting program that he immersed himself in, and his chosen technique was method acting. Regarding how this training played into the song, he told us: "I think that helped influence the way I write a lot of 'you are there' lyrics or lyrics coming from somebody else besides myself. The first song on the first Dead Kennedys album, it envisions a neutron bomb that can somehow wipe out poor people while everything else stays in tact. With it comes the elimination of welfare, urban blight, and all those other traces of the pesky lower class. It is a satire on the elite who wouldn't mind eradicating poverty by simply eliminating poor people. A short sighted and churlish view, but one that is embraced in some form my many politicians.
