“California Uber Alles” cover

A Chicago-based, 30-member “glee club” performs their version of “California Uber Alles,” the 1979 anthem by Bay Area punk legends the Dead Kennedys. The video places a new soundtrack over the original Dead Kennedy’s performance footage. Note: The original song is sung from the perspective of then-Governor Jerry Brown and begins “I am Governor Jerry Brown / My aura smiles and never frowns / Soon I will be president…” Brown, who was Governor of California from 1975 to 1983, is currently running for Governor again in the 2010 California gubernatorial election.
