This band is the epitome of the dirty hippie lifestyle. They do it all: hug trees, smoke marijuana, and recruit more hippies. Luckily, Jerry Garcia, the bearded frontman and fulcrum of their unwholesome activities, died before too much damage was done. However, recently his zombified corpse started a band called The Grateful Undead.
The Grateful Dead were the among the most fervent hippies of the twentieth century. Jerry Garcia alone was known to smoke over 666 joints in one day, and then famously warble "Hibbidee-jibidee-jive doo-wop-a-hootenberwapitgurn-islav-ideeee! Pass the bong, muuuuuutttttthhhhhhaaaaaa-fffuuuuuuucccckkkkkaaaaaahhhh!!!"
This is possibly his most famous quote.
Also,Garcia stated "I eat the talking bees because I'm George Washington Christ." Whatever the hell that means.
A little known fact about the Grateful Dead is that they once played a "Bear Benefit" concert. They probably did this because Gerry Garcia himself was a bear-human mutant.
This is further undeniable proof that the "Dead" have conspired with bears to destroy America! Due to their name the pact may include Satan.
Jerry's favorite activity is to dry hump the dancing bears.
Voted Most Awesome Band Edit
The Dead has been voted one of the best bands ever. This is because of their 15min LSD fuled rants of heavenly music. It is believed that they support the bears but they dont..... they Just score good acid from them...
Ann Coulter is a fan of the Grateful Dead, showing that to a certain extent their popularity crosses ideological lines.
