Mike Ness' country-tinged punk rockers released their fourth studio album in February 1992, to huge expectations in a post-'Nevermind' world.
The four records Social Distortion have put out on indie labels will be released as a box set.
Against Me!, Jane's Addiction, Ween, Death Cab for Cutie, Brand New and many more will be playing one or both of the Riot Fest events in Chicago and Denver.
It's hard to believe it's been 25 years since Social Distortion released their foundational self-titled album.
We tip our fedora to Mike Ness and his gang of rock 'n' roll gangsters.
We all know Mike Ness is a connoisseur of vintage junk culture. The Social Distortion frontman is responsible for some of the pulpiest songs in the punk canon, and since 1988's 'Prison Bound,' he's written almost exclusively from the perspective of outlaws, sinners, gangsters, greaseball hoods and doomed film noir protagonists.
