well I like social distortion, I think they do great music and stuff so wheather you like or not, here is a history of the band and then post every social distortion pic you have lol or any thread to listen to music or whatever

The late ‘70’s…
The first raw, sloppy, speeding guitar chords announcing an Orange County punk scene blared from Huntington Beach and Fullerton California in 1978. They echoed the sound forged in 1976-77 in the seminal punk undergrounds of New York City, London and Los Angeles.

In the early days, O.C. punk’s unyielding musical force slammed up against an immovable cultural object: the Orange County dream of quiet, well-oriented, economically impregnable suburban living.

Treating rowdy, often outrageous fans as a gang element, local authorities shut down a series of clubs that championed the music. But O.C. punk proved too hardy to erase.

In 1979, Mike Ness forms Social Distortion with drummer Casey Royer and brothers Rikk and Frank Agnew.


"Basically, they’re into violence," a Huntington Beach police sergeant told the LA Times in 1979. "They have a hatred virtually for everybody. There’s no motive, no rationale. They just do whatever they feel like at the time." The officer went on to plea: "We can’t do anything with out the public’s help. It’s the only way we’re going to stop it." Misjudging punk as a gang movement, police in Huntington Beach and Newport Beach detained kids on the streets snapping their mug shots for police files.

The ‘80’s…
Mike Ness was the original tenant of "the Black Hole" a one-bedroom pad in a nondescript Fullerton apartment complex.

After meeting Dennis Danell, a punk loving classmate, Ness insisted Danell, who at the time didn’t play an instrument, be included in the band as the Bass player. Not wanting to pause to break in a novice, Royer and the Agnews left and formed their own band instead.

The next few years saw a revolving-door membership.

KROQ-FM deejay Rodney Bingenheimer embraced Orange County music, playing highlights from its major local bands on his Sunday night radio show. Robbie Fields, a small-time music entrepreneur, saw potential in suburban punk. Fields combed the clubs and backyard parties, signing many of the significant local bands to his Posh Boy label for their initial singles or albums.

In the early ‘80’s, Mike Ness was brawling outside of the Cuckoo’s Nest with a rival punk rocker who wrestled him to the ground and bite off a chunk of his left ear.

1981, Social Distortion release their first single "Mainliner/Playpen" on the Posh Boy label.

In 1982 Social Distortion, along with LA’s Youth Brigade and DC’s Minor Threat, filmed the documentary "Another State of Mind," which follows the band’s first stormy cross-continental tour.

By late1983, Social Distortion’s first recording line up consisted of Mike Ness, Danell (now on rhythm guitar), bassist Brent Liles, and drummer Derek O’Brien. Released on 13th Floor, "Mommy’s Little Monster" gained the band a national name in punk circles.

New Year’s Eve 1983, a fed-up Brent Liles and Derek O’Brien bailed out of the band in the middle of the show.

At the beginning of 1984, Ness and Danell recruited John Maurer, another old school buddy from Fullerton to play bass and Christopher Reece came in on the drums. This lineup weathered Social Distortion’s worst years.

1984 "Another State Of Mind" was one of the few punk videos to air on Mtv.

1984 Social Distortion continued to play locally and on weekend get-aways to Arizona and Northern California.

Late 1985, Mike Ness, after a series of hospitalizations and brief jailings, had put on the brakes by going into a drug recovery program.

1988, Social Distortion release "Prison Bound," an album whose moving title cut about a wasted life is one of the greatest songs ever to come out of Orange County, Ness turned Social Distortion’s albums into an ongoing dialogue about impulsiveness, it’s consequences and the hard struggle for maturity.

The ‘90’s…
In 1990, "Social Distortion," SD’s first album on a major label (Epic), the first not financed by the band itself was released.

In 1992 Social Distortion released "Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell." The second release on the major label Epic.

Although Social Distortion proudly proclaimed its Fullerton origins, other upwardly mobile rockers played down their O.C. connections.

July 1995, Time Bomb Recordings re-issues "Mommy’s Little Monster," "Prison Bound," and releases the single compilation "Mainliner, Wreckage from the Past."

Social Distortion took an extended hiatus following the release of "Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell," and returned to the studios in the fall of 1995 to record "White Light, White Heat, White Trash."

August1996 Chuck Biscuits becomes the new drummer for Social Distortion.

Summer of 1997, Social Distortion play the Vans Warped Tour. Other bands on the bill include Pennywise, Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Helmet.

February 1998, Time Bomb Recordings re-issues the punk classic "Hell Comes To Your House."

April 7,8,9 1998, Social Distortion record three nights at the Roxy and release it as an album on Time Bomb Recordings.

Early 1999, Mike Ness records and releases his first solo record "Cheating At Solitaire."

Late 1999, Mike Ness records and releases the cover collection "Under The Influences."

The ‘00’s…
February 29, 2000 Dennis Danell, the 38-year old guitarist, died of natural causes. "I am saddened beyond any possible form of expression. Dennis and I have been friends since boyhood, starting Social Distortion while we where in high school. My deepest regrets to his family." - Mike Ness

May 6, 2000 "When The Angels Sing" a benefit for the family of Dennis Danell. Bands who were on the bill include Social Distortion, The Offspring, X, Pennywise, TSOL, Punk Rock Karoke, Agent Orange and Rock Star BBQ.

Fall of 2000, Jonny "2 Bags" Wickersham becomes the new guitarist for Social Distortion.

Fall of 2000, Charlie Quintana becomes the new drummer for Social Distortion.

Fall of 2003 Social Distortion head into the studio to record "Sex, Love and Rock'n'Roll," their first full length studio recordl since 1996 and first record since founding member Dennis Danell passed away.

July 27, 2004 Social Distortion release "Live in The Orange County" their first live DVD

August 5, 2004 After 20 years of serving as Social Distortion’s bass player John Maurer has decided to leave the band. Maurer completed the recording of “Sex, Love and Rock and Roll’, the new Social Distortion full length studio recording but has decided to forgo the usual extended promotion and touring in order to stay home and devote time to his wife and two children. Matt Freeman of Rancid has come aboard for the cycle of Sex, Love and Rock'n' Roll.

August 24, 2004 Another State of Mind will be released on DVD for the time

September 28, 2004 Sex, Love and Rock'n'Roll will be released on CD and limited edition red vinyl.

This is the first major label release from Social D and the record that set the standard for future (and even previous) recordings. Hindsight being 20/20, I can't believe MTV didn't jump all over this record and make Social D the latest hipster greaser band like the Stray Cats. Prison Bound marks the genesis of the country influence on Social D's sound, but it wasn't perfected until this album. The proportions of rock, punk, country and rockabilly are perfectly adjusted on this album. More songs about prison, life as a loser, misfit and overall worthless car-lovin', whiskey-drinkin', cigarette-smokin' member of the lower class. If you are ever going to take up cigarette smoking, "Ball and Chain" will provide the necessary inspiration. On this record, Mike and Co. perfect their image, and let's be honest, the most attractive thing about Social D is that you will never be as cool as they are. This record is somehow greater than the sum of its parts. Country legends like Hank Williams, David Allen Coe, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard wish they could write songs like this (and Mike Ness feels the same way about their work, just witness the flawless tribute to Cash on "Ring Of Fire"). If you're some kind of microbrew-drinking, cigar-smoking, SUV-driving moron, don't bother buying this album. This is only for the Pabst, Lucky Strikes and '57 T-bird crowd-rednecks, white socks and Blue Ribbon

Die-hard Social D fans will tell you this album represents the pinnacle of their career. Don't believe them. The record starts off strong with "Cold Feelings," which is one of my favorite Social D songs, then moves to "Bad Luck." Both of these songs demonstrate the band's strength in writing rockers as well as slower country-tinged numbers. In fact, "Bad Luck" is classic Social D and must be an integral part of any analysis of their career. The third track is an amazing cover of the country classic "Making Believe" made famous by the late Jim Reeves. Here we can definitely see that Mike Ness' allegiance to county is not a gimmick or image ploy - it's legit, as anyone can tell by simply listening to his voice. But after these three winners, the record starts to slump and never recovers. The remainder of the record is an instance of "too much of a good thing." The rockabilly influence takes over and the essence of the Social D sound that makes them stand out is lost. Particularly bothersome are "Born To Lose" and "This Time Darlin'." Even the next cover, "King of Fools," is lacking with respect to their previous successes in covering the classics. This must be an instance of simply trying too hard. If you can buy an entire CD for only three songs, this one's a worthwhile buy. Else, leave it alone.

1. Cold Feelings
2. Bad Luck
3. Making Believe
4. Born To Lose
5. Bye Bye Baby

Mainliner: Wreckage From The Past 1995 Time Bomb


Most punks know that the first Social D singles are regarded as LA punk classics. These records really capture the aura of the scene in 1980 Orange County. Finding them proves to be an arduous task and even when successful you'll easily pay over $40 for each. Or, you could pick up this $13 CD and get all of the tracks on one disc, complete with lyrics and photos that paint the picture of an era long gone which will never be duplicated. If you like 90's Social D because of their masterful blend of country and honky tonk into rock, you will not be satisfied with this record. This record is pure early 80's LA punk, and the lyrics could easily serve as a textbook on the scene. The songs are full of the standard themes of the time - the harassment of the punk youth, the dissatisfaction with society and the destructive and rampant drug use of the punkers. All are delivered well and the music provides the perfect background for the telling of these stories from one person who, at the time, was living it. No other album outlines the social life of early punkers so thoroughly and vividly. These recordings set the stage for the landmark Social D album, Mommy's Little Monster. 'Nuff said.

White Light White Heat White Trash 1996 Epic

This is honestly one of the best rock albums recorded in the 90's. After 16 years, some jail time, and more tattoos, they finally got it all together. This is the third distinct Social D sound and even as this is reminiscent of the early 80's singles, this is something entirely different. This is what rock 'n' roll was supposed to have evolved into, not garbage like Metallica and Guns 'n' Roses. "I Was Wrong" is one of my favorite songs of all time. This shows that punks can indeed be mature people who can own up to their wrongdoings. In fact, this whole album shows a new level of maturity that I have never seen from Social D, and a level that is rarely attained by other acts as well. "Dear Lover" and "Untitled" could be called "love" songs, but they transcend that label. The music on this record can't be described, so a review is in principle futile.

nothing to do with the post count, why the fuck not do something on social distortion when there is green day and other bands, they dont do shit, there are far more shittier bands, and for example here is a good song


"Don't Drag Me Down"

Children are taught to hate
Parents just couldn't wait
Some are rich and some are poor
Others will just suffer more
Have you ever been ashamed
And felt society try to keep you down, I begin to watch things change
And see them turn around
Turn around
They'll try to keep you down
Turn around [x2]
Don't drag me down

Ignorance is like a gun in hand
Reach out to the promised land
Your history books are full of lies
Media-blitz gonna dry your eyes
Have you ever been afraid
And felt society try to keep you down, I begin to watch things change
And see them turn around

Turn around
They'll try to keep you down
Turn around [x2]
Don't drag me down

Ignorance is like a gun in hand, reach out to the promised land
Your history books
Are full of lies, media-blitz gonna dry your eyes
You're eighteen
Wanna be a man
Your granddaddy's in
The Klu Klux Klan
Taking two steps foward
And four steps back
Gonna go to the White House
And paint it black

[x2] Turn around
They'll try to keep you down
Turn around [x2]
Don't drag me
Down

the music is awesome in this song and if you dont like it well too bad
