Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables is the debut studio album by the American punk rock band Dead Kennedys. It was first released on September 2, 1980 through Cherry Red Records in the United Kingdom and later issued by Jello Biafra's own Alternative Tentacles label in the United States. The best selling and generally the most critically acclaimed album by Dead Kennedys, Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables has become a major staple of American punk.

The album blends surf rock with the fastest, hardest sounding punk made up to that point to create possibly the creepiest album ever to come out of the Bay Area. The album art is a photograph of a protest which took place following the death of the San Francisco politician and activist, Harvey Milk. Rioters set on fire several police cars, as seen in the image. The album exists in several versions, each with a unique album cover, the most common release being used here for the track listing. In a 2017 interview with PunkNews, Jello Biafra touched on the release of Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables: It definitely made a splash in England and Europe, because we already made one with the California Uber Alles and Holiday in Cambodia singles. But in America, hardly any underground punk band had ever been able to make an album. People didn’t have money then.

A hyper-speed blast of ultra-polemical, left-wing hardcore punk, and bitingly funny sarcasm, Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables stands as the Dead Kennedys' signature statement. As one of the first hardcore albums, it was a galvanizing influence on the musical and attitudinal development of the genre, also helping to kickstart the fertile California scene.
