I'm not sure about riff 3 but the rest is right. I've tried to tab out
the rhythm but it maybe wrong. (-55-) these are 16ths
                               (-5-5-) these are 8ths
                               (-5--5-) these are 4ths

Klaus just plays the main riff during the solo but you can play this for the hell of it.

This album in my my opinion the dead kennedys best album
It kicks ass.
Jr put this all together just so you know
