It’s entirely possible. I won’t get my hopes up just yet, but I’m happy they even entertained the offer.
Potentially, The Dead Milkmen may even agree to play, but by the time we win our right to play at Camp Pendleton and set a hard date, they might be booked. Honestly, the RBB2 situation is in need of a reboot. I’m just now getting back to activism after a month or two lull. We appreciate the support from DM’s Rodney Anonymous (@RodneyAnon), no matter what happens.

When I try to categorize The Dead Milkmen beyond just the ‘punk’ label (which it certainly is), I immediately think to other artists that often have nothing to do with that genre. Frank Zappa, King Missile, Atom and his Package, The Dictators, The Fugs, Spike Jones, Butthole Surfers, Dan Deacon, MC Honky, The Frogs… they appear to be musical neighbors.
Noticeably, this bunch are not easily pinned down as novelty or parody music (Weird Al, etc.)
Spike Jones – Cocktails for Two (1944)
The Fugs – New Amphetamine Shriek (1966)
Is it just me? I don’t know… I’m just an amateur musical historian here.
Little known fact:
