Having grown up in Orange County in the 70's and 80's, going to backyard parties and underground clubs listening to the likes of X,TSOL,AGENT ORANGE,P-WISE,and more,I can relate to the angst shared by all punks of our time. It is however true though, that Social-D is by far the superior of all Punk!! With the cut throat guitar stylings of Mike Ness,backed by the killer rhythm of Dennis Danell, to the fierce pounding dead-on bass of John Maurer, SxDx delivers songs with pure emotion sure to stir the souls of anyone who listens.Once you hear them,your sure to be a fan for life.If not,they don't need you.It is not at all surprising how Social Distortion gets better with age and continues to influence the newer bands as well as staying in the forefront of pure American Punk Rock n' Roll! The truth, love,hate,life,and death is in the music. Truly music as it was intended to played and heard, through the soul.
