Album Of The Day: Suicidal Tendencies – Self Titled

Suicidal Tendencies - Self Titled AOTD

The first ever Suicidal Tendencies album in celebration of only just realising that they will be headlining the tent at Download this year! This has made me very happy indeed as crossover thrash is one of the mainstays in my listening rota and ST pretty much invented it!

They have been through so many line-up changes its ridiculous but that doesn’t detract from the amazingness of this band. Controversy, gang violence, politics and bust ups all add to the whole drama that is Suicidal Tendencies and it definitely gives them the ammo to write excellent thrash punk.

Best song on the album is probably the song that got them a bit of MTV fame, ‘institutionalized’. Now where’s my upturned peak hat…

(That video is bloody hilarious…80’s style FTW!)

The full album can be found here on Spotify
