Mutiny on the Bay is a live album by the Dead Kennedys. It was compiled and released after a lengthy lawsuit, which resulted in the rights to the Dead Kennedys' catalog being transferred from lead singer/songwriter Jello Biafra's record label, Alternative Tentacles to the other three members of the band. Its quality has been criticized by Jello Biafra.

Venues[edit]

The album is not one consecutive concert, but rather tracks culled from various performances in 1982 and 1986.

The tracks "Police Truck", "Holiday in Cambodia", "Forward to Death", "I Am the Owl" and "Riot" were recorded at the Elite Club, San Francisco, on March 20, 1982. "Hellnation", "California Über Alles", "Too Drunk to Fuck" and "This Could Be Anywhere" were recorded at The Stone, San Francisco, on February 16, 1986. "Moon Over Marin", "M.T.V. − Get off the Air" and "Goons of Hazard" were also recorded at The Stone the following day.

As a peculiarity "Kill the Poor" was recorded on February 21, 1986, at Freeborn Hall in Davis, California. The show is notable in that it was the final performance of the Dead Kennedys.
