The song “California Uber Alles” by the band Dead Kennedys became famous for its criticism of then Governor Jerry Brown (D-California) depicting him as a corrupt leader of an imaginary ‘hippie-fascist’ version of America. With references to Julius Caesar and George Orwell’s 1984 the song presents a scathing indictment of the complacent mentality embraced by former activists in post-Vietnam America. The song has been re-made several times to reflect contemporary political views for varying elections such as the 1980 election of Reagan and the 2004 California Recall Election.
