"Halloween" (B-side "Saturday Night Holocaust) is the seventh and final single by the
Dead Kennedys. It was released in December of 1982 on Alternative Tentacles. The lyrics use the metaphor of a Halloween party to address the theme of human responses to nonconformity.The song is from the band's second album, Plastic Surgery Disasters.
"Saturday Night Holocaust" is a song comparing drug-filled disco culture in the 70's and early 80's to
cabaretculture in NaziGermany, namely in the case of the apathy towards the governments actions. It ends with a modern version of the Nazi's persecution of the cabaret, and can in some ways be seen as a sort of companion to " California Über Alles" ("a Hitler youth in a jogging suit smiling face branded round his arm" can be seen as a re-appearance of the hippie-nazis of the aforementioned song).
