About Social Distortion
This is the short version of the Social Distortion bio — the long version could be a 10-part mini-series. But over the past 30 years, the punk godfathers in the band have all but trademarked their sound, a brand of hard rockabilly/punk that’s cut with the melodic, road-tested lyrics of front man Mike Ness.
Their searing guitars and a locomotive rhythm section sound as alive today as they did in ‘82, as do Ness’ hard-luck tales of love, loss and lessons learned.
Now in their fourth decade, Ness and Social Distortion have officially done one of the most non-punk things possible: They’ve failed to burn out. Mixing Springsteen’s factory-overalls ethic with Southern California punk energy and black leather, Social Distortion formed with Ness and high school buddy, the late Dennis Danell, in the late 1970s; the group broke in 1983 with the thrashing plate of punk and displeasure Mommy’s Little Monster.
Their 1988 follow-up, Prison Bound, hinted at a sonic change to come, and by the band’s self-titled 1990 record and 1992’s Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell, their sound had solidified into the instantly recognizable brand of rock ‘n’ roll that’s defined them since.
Social Distortion is a mix of potent power, appeal across all age brackets and a genuine satisfaction at reaching as many fans as possible.
