Dead Kennedys

Dead Kennedys are a hardcore punk/punk rock band from San Francisco, California. During the 1980s the band gained a large underground following in the international punk music scene. Their music mixed the more experimental elements of English 1970s punk with the raw energy of the 1980s American scene. Dead Kennedys' songs mix the deliberately shocking lyrics of punk with a satirical and sarcastic left-wing commentary on social and political issues.

Eddie And The Hot Rods

Eddie and the Hot Rods were a pub rock band from London founded in 1975. They are often considered as one of the many punk rock bands that sprang from that city in the mid-Seventies, but in fact saw themselves as more influenced by groups like The Who and The Kinks, and other pub-rock acts such as Dr Feelgood or Graham Parker & the Rumour. Their brand of energetic r'n'b was over-trumped massively by the punk explosion, and they withered away.
