Fans of the genre ask: What does it mean to be punk today? It was a question easier to answer in the late 1970s and early
80s. It meant a certain flamboyant haircut, a certain wardrobe of denim that looked like it had been hit by an IED, a certain
irreverent attitude and general disdain for authority figures and a daily menace that challenged to tear apart the social
fabric and let chaos be the new world order. Of course that didn't happen, but the music of the times, the anthems that inspired
so many to lead that lifestyle continues to live on. So what does it mean to be punk today? Social Distortion has the answer.
They've held onto their saucy, insolent attitude and injected it into their music, music that is as fresh today as it was
30 years ago. To see punk rein supreme once again, head over to StubHub to score Social Distortion concert tickets for a show you'll never forget!
It isn't easy to make it in the music business and remain at the forefront, but Social Distortion has done it and without
sacrificing who they are. They've stayed strong for three decades on their own terms, playing by their own rules. In all their
years onstage and in the studio, their sound and influence has only grown stronger. Each of your albums has been heralded
as innovative and groundbreaking. They've been invited onstage by Bruce Springsteen, because he wanted to play one of their
songs. Nobody puts on a show like Social Distortion, and with tickets from StubHub, you can be there to see them do it all
The punk rock gods of Social Distortion have all but trademarked their inimitable sound, a brand of hard rockabilly and
punk that's fronted with the melodic, road-tested lyrics of lead singer Mike Ness. Their searing guitars and chugging rhythm
section sound as alive today as they did in 1982, and Ness' hard-luck tales of love, loss and lessons learned continue to
resonate with audiences everywhere. Whether you're a fan of old school punk rock or just love a good rock n' roll show, Social
Distortion never disappoints.
Mixing Springsteen's blue-collar ethos with Southern California punk energy and black leather, Social Distortion came about
in the late 1970s under the direction of Mike Ness and high school pal Dennis Danell. Social Distortion broke new musical
ground in 1983 with their full-speed-ahead attitude of punk and displeasure on their brilliant debut album Mommy's Little
Monster. The band's 1988 follow-up, Prison Bound, belied a sonic change to come, and by the band's self-titled 1990 record
and 1992's Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell, Social Distortion has solidified their sound and evolved into the instantly
recognizable brand of rock n' roll that's defined them since. Lost in time yet refreshingly modern, Social Distortion is not
to be missed!
Now in their fourth decade, Social Distortion has officially done one of the most non-punk things possible: They've stayed.
As one of the most prolific punk bands of its day as well as today, Social Distortion remains an iconic figure in the world
of American rock n' roll, a testament to the staying power of great music and the fans who love it. Anyone who's every been
to a Social Distortion show knows these guys put on a set like none other, and the opportunity to see them live isn't to be
missed. Get your jean jacket out of the garage, go to StubHub to purchase rock
tickets to see Social Distortion live and get ready for the ultimate punk performance!
