3. Jello Biafra (Eric Reed Boucher)


Bands: Dead Kennedys (1978-1986), Lard (1988-2000), Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine (2008-present), and numerous collaborations throughout the 90's and 2000's.

Jello is my favorite punk vocalist and my favorite lyricist in music. Whenever you hear Jello's voice you know it's him. That, his lyrics, and the personality he brings into his music is what makes him one of punk's top frontmen. Jello is a smart dude too. His lyrics are far beyond the typical "fuck the system" kinda stuff. Trust Your Mechanic is one of the truest songs ever written IMO. Apparently there's some bullshit Dead Kennedys lineup doing tours lately but i'm not even gonna bother checking that out. With all due respects to East Bay Ray, Jello is the Dead Kennedys.

Example: Dead Kennedys - We’ve Got a Bigger Problem Now
