Jello @ 7

I attended one of the best and most energetic concerts of the year last night at Red 7 and the ring leader of it all was a 51-year-old. But age is simply a number when you are the high priest of political punk. Yes, Jello Biafra hasn't missed a step since his notorious days as lead singer for the punk band Dead Kennedys, which was formed some thirty years ago. He's still railing against the system. Still mad as hell. Still Jello. If Jello and his band - Guantanamo School of Medicine - come to your town, do yourself a favor and check them out.

And while we're on the subject of punk, here are five punk classic albums everyone(yes, you) should own:

Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables - Dead Kennedys(1980)

Singles Going Steady - Buzzcocks(1979)

Entertainment! - Gang Of Four(1979)

Walk Among Us - Misfits(1982)

Damaged - Black Flag(1981)
