In the early 80's when dangerous punk gangs such as the "L.A. Death Squad" and "Circle One Family" were running rampant, few of the gangs stood out as much as the Suicidals, who dressed like Cholos. Formed from punks who grew up and lived in the ghettos of Venice, Long Beach, Santa Monica, and other parts of LA.

Their name comes from the "Suicidal Tendencies" punk/thrash/crossover band from Venice. Mike Muir along with the rest of the band were known to dress like "Cholos" even though they were punks. The Suicidal gang color is blue, which leads most to think that at first glance they are Crips, but Suicidals have no association with Crips. For the Suicidals rarely contended with typical major race gangs such as Bloods, Crips, Surenos, Nortenos etc. since they are of a different caliber and Suicidals only fought with other punk gangs.

Gang attire consisted of a lot of blue: Blue bandanas worn around the forehead and covering most of the eyes, Flipped up hats with the words "Suicidal" under the bill, flannel jackets buttoned on the top only, white shirts tucked into ironed dickies pants or ben davis jeans, and Vans skate shoes or Zig Zag shoes. Also noteworthy are the custom hand drawn white dress shirts worn by most of the Suicidals and Suicidal affiliates to shows which had skulls and other frightful things drawn on them with the words "Suicidal" used often. Serious gang members would get numerous things tattooed on their bodies such as Suicidal, Suicidals, Suicidalx13, STx13, and also tattooes of Razor Blades on the wrist were not un-common

The Suicidal gang members dressed like cholos and vato Mexicans rather than dressing like British Punks because of their love of their hoods and places they grew up. Its argueable to say when the gang was started, most likely it was early to mid 80s. Closely associated with the "Venice 13" gang(Note:Amery Smith, original drummer for Suicidal Tendencies was a Venice 13 gang member, this is proven by looking at their original band lineup photo in which Smith is wearing a flipped up hat with the marking "V13" underneath), in their hay-day, the Suicidals were one of the most dangerous punk bands around. Just like any real gang, you had to have been initiated into the gang by getting jumped numerous times among other things, and in some very rare instances, self mutilation.

In the 80s, hardcore punk concerts would most likely have Suicidal gang member attendees which would result in people getting beat up, stabbed, and sometimes killed. For this reason, the Suicidal Tendencies band was blamed for many violent outbreaks at their shows and murders, they were also banned from playing in LA for up untill the 90s because of their "Suicidal" following.

The gang is much less active now, but is also now worldwide. Suicidal gang members don't really "bang" anymore or nearly as much as they used to, but they still are considered dangerous. Most of the older generation Suicidals from the 80s are in jail for serious crimes.

Nowadays the "punk-cholo" look which was started by the Suicidals has taken a fashionable appeal for some punk fans and skaters.
If you went to a punk show in the 80s and saw some cholo's standing around, you best keep your distance and watch what you say because those are Suicidals and they're some crazy mother fuckers.

Suicidal feelings are common and can last for any amount of time, and vary from mild to extreme.
Suicide attempts may or may not be actually carried out by someone who is suicidal.
Mildly Suicidal:
Person 1: I just got an F on my math test and my girlfriend dumped me. My life sucks. I want to die.
Person 2: OMG don't kill yourself!
Person 1: What?! I would never kill myself.

Extremely Suicidal:
Person 1: There is nothing in my life that is good anymore. Everything makes me sad. I haven't been happy in such a long time. I don't even want anything out of life anymore. I'm going to kill myself.
Person 2: Nooo!

Someone wishing they could go to sleep & never wake up.
If someone takes a couple ibuprofen because they want to sleep, I'd say maybe they have insomnia? If someone wants to take a couple bottles of ibuprofen because they want to sleep forever, I'd say maybe they could be suicidal?

Someone who is contemplating suicide

"The bleakness of the landscape is unimaginable. It is as friendless and alien as a Dali painting. Ordinary concerns, such as work or friends, have no place here. Futility muffles thought; time elongates cruelly. Who is to blame for this situation? Those with depression think it must be them. Pointlessness and self-loathing govern them. So the natural final step is suicide. People with depression donโ€™t kill themselves to frighten an errant boyfriend. They kill themselves because it is the obvious and right thing to do at that point. It is the only positive step they can think ofโ€ฆ"
1.)I felt suicidal after my boyfriend cheated on me
2.)Goth always say there suicidal...liars

Sometimes "suicidal" can almost mean the opposite of being suicidal. According to Mike Muir of Suicidal Tendencies, being Suicidal is being crazy enough to believe in yourself. To have the ability to think for yourself, and be above all influences. If you're suicidal, then you're a stingy person with a strong will. Nobody blocks you from achieving goals. Most of all, you don't give a fuck what people think and you don't let others change your thought process. There are no hypocrites who are suicidal, because being a hypocrite goes against everything that is SUICIDAL.

If you're not suicidal for life, then you were never suicidal to begin with.

Suicidals are just angels ready to go home. Some Suicidals will actually go through with it. They play with knives, hang themselves up high, try to fly, consume too many pills, and that's sad. I feel numb, I don't feel anymore. Sepf-harm is all I know, its all I can feel. I've played with knives, consumed too many pills, I've even tried to hang myself up high... But the hospital closed up my cuts, and helped my survive the pills, my cousin found me before the rope killed my body. I want to die. But here's the thing... How can you kill yourself, if your already dead??? Cause I'm dead on the inside, but loving on the outside...
Suicidal thoughts: no one likes you, you are an ugly, stupid, fat, suicidal, a freak, and weird kid. Just die already.
Bully: fatty. Your ugly, your still alive?!?! Suicidal freak. No one cares about you.
Me: Help... Me... No one cares. Maybe I should just die... Like my brother did... With the knife... He always seemed happy... But he never actually was...
Suicidal thoughts: good thinking kid......
Bully: don't cry you crybaby
Suicidal thoughts: don't listen to him, don't cry, laugh like your insane, it'll scare him... And then u can kill yourself when you get home.
