Frankenchrist is the third album released by the American hardcore punk band Dead Kennedys in 1985 on Alternative Tentacles.
The album is an example of the progressive, psychedelic side of Dead Kennedys’ musical personality. The spaghetti western soundtrack influence is also noticeable in the horn parts and in East Bay Ray’s atmospheric guitar work. Frankenchrist is noted for its relative lack of traditionally ‘hardcore’ material. Most of the songs are slower and longer than the majority of other Dead Kennedys songs. “M.T.V. – Get off the Air” is notable for its pointed slam of the music establishment and “Stars and Stripes of Corruption” for its exegesis of vocalist Jello Biafra’s political philosophies.
