California Uber Alles

While wending my way home through the traffic-snarled streets of West L.A., this song came on the radio. I know, you're thinking, "Wow, Stella listens to some hip indie station!" In fact, I was not listening to Indie 103.1, but Star 98.7! Who would have believed that Ryan Seacrest's former stomping ground would host anything as subversive as Jello Biafra? (Oooh! Dead Kennedys guest appearance on American Idol! That would sooo rock! Can you see just see Paula's face now?)

I have my brother's friend Bruce to thank for turning me on to the Dead Kennedys. He lent me his collection of punk albums (back in the good ol' days of vinyl!) and before you know it this Eagles lovin' gal was punking out to the Ramones, Sex Pistols and the DKs. Although I still love the Eagles...
