There is a pretty good documentary from the early 80s called Another State of Mind. It features SD and Youth Brigade. It's interesting to see Mike Ness in his very early days.
That was my introduction to Social Distortion! I saw it as a midwest teenager in the 80s. It was on late night cable TV and I was just blown away by it. I grew up in the middle of nowhere and when is saw that documentary I thought, "wow there are other people like me!"
Mike Ness and that gold top Les Paul we're just born to be together- perfect match!
One of the worst live acts I ever saw!
Wow, must've caught them on a bad night. I've seen them dozens of times and they almost always have fantastic sound with a great mix and clear vocals.
Loved that movie back in the day! I bought a copy on DVD at an SD show about 15 years ago.
Agreed! And the audience is so much fun. The times I've seen them the age mix is middle age to young teens, some of them obviously family. It's great to see that kind of community and that the music is handed down through generations.
I saw them with Sonic Youth and Neil Young in 90 (91?). Sonic Youth was great, and I wanted to like SD, but they just didn't light the match for me-admittedly, I was no big fan to begin with, but man, it was rough. Neil Young baked us all up a big Whoop-Arse Double Layer Crazy Horse Cake, so it was a good night.
