All in for another State of Mind and Mommy's Little Monster. Prison Bounds and everything after is lost on me. FYI - Mike Ness has a preference for Norlin era Les Pauls.
Social Distortion can lead to Suicidal Tendencies
Butthole Surfers. I just like the name.
SD is one of my favorite bands. They (well, Mike Ness) have been around for decades and make some great, no-nonsense rock.
A few of my favorites:
And my Ness tribute LP (Agile goldtop):
Got to see the 25th anniversary of the self titled album tour. One of the best shows I have ever seen. The whole band are soooo good. Social D is one of my favorites.
My band The Blowtorches did a one-off Social D tribute for a NYE gig, it was a blast working up and performing 45 min worth of SD songs. VERY cool
I like 'em cos' Gibby's dad was a childrens' TV personality when I was a kid, and I met him once (google Mr. Peppermint if you didn't already know).
Anyhow, Ness and Co are the real deal. The Rev name drops 'em both in the first two verses of "You Can't Get Away from Me."
I has to sell ( damn it! $$!!) but I owned the Same Agile '56 Goldtop style LP ( I had Lollar P-90's put in- wow!)
it was an amazing guitar. Played and sounded fantastic, and the fat neck and just beautiful RW fingerboard and frets,
With those pickups, Volume knobs, and a moderate OD, I could play anything ( well, that I can play), with this Agile.
Social D- attitude and great band sound- that 'pumping and breathing' pulse!
I like this video, too.
I can't even fathom how much fun this would be. I would love to play drums in a gig like that.
for how much i love old country music and how big a part of my life punk rock has been, this band just doesn't do it for me.
i like another state of mine, and story of my life. the rest of it just leaves me cold.
Saw them 30 years ago, what a band.
saw social D a couple years ago...they were great
I saw them do a Tribute to Hank Williams with a kick your teeth out version of Six More Miles Live.
I dug the hell out of it.
Yes, I'm from Texas... grew up watching Mr. Peppermint as a child and listening to the Buttholes the rest of my life...
Peppermint was a cool dad. The biggest Buttholes fan. Said him and his son had similar professions... entertaining the youth. Lol
Now that’s a feat! That’s about 20 social D songs!
Mike ness is one of the reasons I got a gold top when I bought my first nice guitar, except I didn’t realize his had p-90’s
Super cool, Dallas here. Mr. Haynes lived in the Lake Highlands area iirc or at least at the time; my mom had a friend from work in that hood with a son about my age, and we happened to be over there one Saturday when her friend asked us if we wanted to meet their neighbor. We were 8 or 9 and a little old for him by then, but were super starstruck. Can't remember not watching that show when I was small, and didn't find out 'til 15+ later about Gibby and assumed it was an urban myth
One of my all time favorite bands. Got into them when I was skating back in the 80’s. Never got over em. Still in heavy rotation.
