Jello Biafra net worth: Jello Biafra is a former American punk rock singer and spoken word artist that has a net worth of $500 thousand. Born in Boulder, Colorado on June 17, 1958 as Eric Reed Boucher, Biafra is well known for being the front man of the popular punk band, Dead Kennedys. He became active in the music business in 1976 and co-founded Alternative Tentacles Records in 1979 with band mate East Bay Ray. Biafra is actively engaged in Green Party politics and ran for Presidential nomination in 2000. In 1977, Biafra was employed as a roadie for the band The Ravers/The Nails, and shortly after joined a band called The Healers. Biafra’s songwriting nature is of political and sociological standpoint having a hint of sarcasm and criticism. His first well-known song record using the Dead Kennedys was “California Uber Alles,” followed by “Holiday in Cambodia.” IN 1986 Biafra was accused of spreading “harmful material to minors” for the cover art of the band’s album Frankenchrist. He claimed it as a political statement, as well as the charges were dropped later that year. During the period of the trial, the Dead Kennedys fizzled out due to rising costs. Biafra started his spoken word career after the band’s breakup. His first performance was at the University of California, Los Angeles, and his writing is in exactly the same light as his song lyrics. Biafra has also performed with bands like Lard, D.O.A., and The Melvins.
