In the early '80s when Suicidal Tendencies started, punk rock was not very welcoming to "new ideas", especially from a new crew that were obviously not worried about fitting in. But SxTx wasn't there to be "accepted" and not only played their own style of cyco punk, but reinvented the DYI attitude to a level never seen before with their distinctive look and sound. For 35 years, ST hasn't worried about what other bands or people were or weren't doing. About what was cool or trendy at the time. They didn't ask for permission, nor did they care who it offended. They did what they wanted, but most importantly for the right reason, cause it's what they felt, not cause they wanted to be liked. That didn't make things easy. They were banned in L.A., Police riots and harassed by various "Authorities" and even the Secret Service got into the act, "dropping in" and paying singer Mike Muir a "visit". Soon after the PMRC got into the act. As would many others, but the music played on, and ST became the soundtrack to an army of cyco's worldwide... to punx, thrashers, metallers, skaters, surfers, moto and other extreme athletes all found motivation in the ST sound to stand on their own and blaze their own trail. Cyco punk lives on! There's no time machine to go back (and thank goodness for that). This will be a full on cyco punk record taken to a whole new level with the legendary drummer Dave Lombardo brutally beating the songs and sound that is made to get your slam on!
