Social Distortion Background
inspired by musicians like Eddie Cochran, Johnny Cash, The Sex Pistols and The Rolling Stones, Social Distortion first took
shape in the 70s as a hardcore punk outfit with Mike Ness and the late Dennis Danell. The pair mashed the blue collar work
ethic reflective of The Boss, Bruce Springsteen's, style, with the punk electricity of the Southern California scene to form
Social Distortion. The group emerged onto the music scene with the release of Mommy's Little Monster (1983). Prison Bound
followed in 1988. At the dawn of the 90s, Social Distortion dropped two albums, Social Distortion (1990) and Somewhere Between
Heaven and Hell (1992) that ultimately defined their sound and established their musical identity. The latter exceeded all
expectations and out-shined the previous recordings in terms of popularity. These works of the 90s borrowed elements from
country and rock and roll music more so than punk influences. After the 1992 release, Social Distortion took a break and didn't
step back into the studio again until 1995. White Light, White Heat, White Trash was the result and dropped in 1996. The album
received heavy rotation on contemporary radio and MTV. It additionally served as the last Social Distortion album that Danell
was featured on before his passing in 2000. Social Distortion didn't return to the studio again until nearly a decade later
when Sex, Love and Rock 'n' Roll arrived. Their most recent album is Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, which came out in 2011,
and Ness announced that the band started working on new material in early 2013.
