Police Truck


"Police Truck" is a song by the Dead Kennedys. The song was originally released in May, 1980, as the B-side of the "Holiday in Cambodia" single and later released in June 1987 as the opening track on their compilation album, Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death. The song is a satirical attack on the actions of two police officers, and takes a first person view from the authorities themselves. The song was inspired by an incident that occurred in Oakland in the late 1970s. It also functions more generally as an attack on police corruption and brutality and the police's support for a capitalist system.
