Suicidal Tendencies - Self-Titled



"Fast, furious, and funny, Suicidal Tendencies' self-titled debut owed much more to hardcore punk than to the later hardcore/heavy metal hybrid they would become known for, but it's still quite possibly their best album. Mike Muir proves himself an articulate lyricist and commentator, delving into subjects like alienation, depression, and nonconformist politics with intelligence and humor. The band behind him is aggressive and speedy, but never sinks into an overly fast sonic blur. Contains the classic rant "Institutionalized."[AMG]

I have always known who wrote the lyrics to these songs... Tell me, who actually wrote that stuff you're quoting? If you have been interested just check out this site.

ONE of the most ultra-superb-albums (another one was Black Flag's 'everything went black') - dunno what the artists of today are for besides regurgitating the same lyrikkks; the sound of the thrash/hardcore (Minor Threat, GBH, MDC, DRI...) shall live on, no matter what form, withe world coming to a close with freeek'n Isis. Oi! Punk rock shall never croak.

But, yet, alas! things change, as do I: if you saw what I saw… Greetings, earthling. Because I was an actual NDE on the outskirts of the Great Beyond at 15 yet wasn’t allowed in, lemme share with you what I actually know Seventh-Heaven’s gonna be like for us if ya believe: meet this ultra-bombastic, ex-mortal-Upstairs for the most-extra-blatant-and-groovy, pleasure-beyond-measure, Ultra-Yummy-Reality-Addiction in the Great Beyond for a BIG-ol, kick-ass, riskyNrisquĂ©, party-hardy, eternal-warp-drive you DO NOT wanna miss the sink-your-teeth-in-the-smmmokin’-hot-deal. YES! For God, anything and everything and more! is possible!! Cya soon...
