During the summer they recorded these songs for their final album, Bedtime for Democracywhich was released in November. The artwork, depicting a defaced Statue of Liberty overrun with Nazis, media, opportunists, Klan members, corrupt government officials, and religious zombies, echoed the idea that neither America itself or the punk scene were safe havens any more for "your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free".

The band performed a gig in Santa Rosa, California in Junewith Peligro returning to the drum kit. The lineup assembled for this tour contained East Bay Ray, Peligro, Greer, and bassist Greg Reeves replacing Flouride, who was taking "personal time off" Rocky Road - Mikey Dread - S.W.A.L.K. the band. Dead Kennedys had world tours in and inthe latter mostly in North American cities.
In and they toured again, including South America, where they had not played since InEast Bay Ray revealed that the band and Jello Biafra had been approached by the Punk-oriented music festival Riot Fest about a potential reunion. While Ray and the rest of the band expressed interest in the concept, Biafra refused. On April 26,Im Wald Auf Der Heide - Peter Schreier - Die Schönsten Volkslieder group released DK40a live compilation album celebrating 40 years since the band formed.
In the late s, former band members discovered problems with the payment of royalties they had received from Alternative Tentacles. Peligro claimed that Jello Biafra had conspired to pay lower royalty rates. Although both sides agreed that the failure to pay these royalties was an accounting mistake, the other members were upset that Biafra failed to inform them of the mistake after he and his co-workers discovered it and additionally claimed he intended to use the money against them.
A jury found Biafra and Alternative Tentacles "guilty of maliceoppression and fraud ". The jury and judges also noted, in their words, that Biafra "lacked credibility" on the songwriting issue and found from evidence presented by both sides that the songwriting credits were due to the entire band.
This dispute was hotly contested by all concerned who felt passionately for their cause, and the case caused minor waves within punk circles. Biafra claims that East Bay Ray had long expressed displeasure with Alternative Tentacles and with the amount of money he received from them, thus the original incentive for the discovery of the back payments. It was found out that Alternative Tentacles was paying Dead Kennedys less per CD than all the other bands, including Biafra himself, and not informing his other bandmates, which was the fraud.
Biafra accused the band of wanting to license the famous Dead Kennedys song " Holiday in Cambodia " for use in a Levi's jeans commercial, which the band denied.

Details Dead Kennedys - Bedtime For Democracy this issue remain scarce. Dead Kennedys - Bedtime For Democracy band also maintains that the Levi's story was completely fictitious and invented by Biafra to discredit Dead Kennedys - Bedtime For Democracy.
Matters were stirred up even further when the three bandmates invited Jello Biafra to "bury the hatchet" in the form of a band reunion. Jello Biafra felt it was unprofessional because no one contacted him directly. Several DVDs, re-issues, and live albums have been released since the departure of Biafra most recently on Manifesto Records. According to Biafra, the live albums are "cash-ins" on Dead Dead Kennedys - Bedtime For Democracy name and his music.
Biafra also accused the releases of the new live material of having poor sound quality. Furthermore he has stated he is not receiving any royalties from the sale of any Manifesto Records releases.
Consequently, he has discouraged fans from buying any Dead Kennedy reissues. The other band members denied Biafra's accusations regarding the live releases, and have defended the mixes as an effort of hard work. Biafra dismissed the new group as "the world's greediest karaoke band. Biafra further criticized them for advertising shows using his own image taken from the original s incarnation of the band, which he labeled as false advertising.
Biafra told an audience at a speaking gig in TrentonNew Jerseythat the remaining Dead Kennedys have licensed their single "Too Drunk to Fuck" to be used The Night Is Young - Brock Berrigan - Chapter 10 (File, Album) a rape scene in a Robert Rodriguez movie.

14 is killed by the would-be victim.

I wrote every note of that song and this is not what it was meant for
