One of the few surviving punk bands out of OC in California. Came out in 1978 with Mike Ness, Casey Royer, Rikk and Frank Agnew. Through many changes in the lineup SD pushed the spirit of true punk through rough times.

Mainly sing about problems of bad luck, run down, drug abused life, seeing as thats how it was for Ness. Best Songs were mommys little monster, Ball and chain, story of my life, Dont drag me down and few others. They have refused to change their style of music, thus making them one of the best punk bands ever.

The line up now is Ness, Charlie Quintana, Jonny "2 Bags" Wickersham, and Matt Freeman of Rancid.
RIP Dennis Danell.

Social Distortion: one of the only punk-surviving bands today. They rock like no one has ever done before.

One of the seminal Orange County (California) punk bands. The Sex Pistols, Johnny Cash, the Rolling Stones all f--ked in a blues bar...and out came Social D. Great band, defined as "refusing to sell out in order to sell more records."
Blink 182 is no Social Distortion. The Vandals were Social Distortion until they released their last crappy album.

A social disorder that makes it possible for your close family and friends to forget about you if u are not currently active on facebook. Sufferers will actually stop emailing and texting you if you're not constantly reminding them of your existance via facebook updates. If you don't exist on facebook, you don't exist to them at all.
I deleted my pics on facebook, and no one called me for a month! I didn't even get invited to my own class reunion. Wow, I didnt know the class of 2000 had Facebook Social Distortion Disorder (FSDD).
