NickyOvitt_2015JulyCalendar_PunkLyricA bit late but still relevant, especially for me. Doing some things this month that scare and excite me. From a band with one of the most iconic logos of the time, this lyric is from the 1980 song, Holiday in Cambodia. Full lyrics can be found here. Although the Dead Kennedys were not on my frequently played list at the time, when you heard this music the OMINOUS was palpable. Singer Jello Biafra and the band have a long history of questioning authority and stirring the stew. Lots of good info on their Wiki(punkia) page here.

I’ve chosen some favorite short phrases of punk song lyrics to flourishly illustrate these expressions that were of such importance to me and my generation. I’m calling the series #PunkLyric and offering them as free desktop calendar downloads each month. [see full explanation here]
