The original lineup of the band consisted of Mike Muir as the vocalist, Carlos Egie as the drummer, Mike Dunnigan as the bassist and Mike Ball as the guitarist. At that time Muir was a college student and intended the band to be a side project, but as they grew in popularity and notoriety, Muir soon made Suicidal Tendencies the center point of his life.
In the early years, the ensemble had the most extreme shifts in their public image, from being voted as the ‘Worst Band’ in 1982 by ‘Flipside’, to being voted the ‘Best New Band’ the following year. The band quickly gained a following and started performing at bigger gigs. In 1982, the Suicidal Tendencies recorded a demo, which included the single, I Saw Your Mommy that also featured on the group’s debut album.
Even before the band released its debut album, the members had gained much attention and acclaim for their fiery performances and uninhibited lyrics. When their self-titled debut album came out in 1983, it opened to an explosive reaction from the public and established the band as an articulate music entity delving into topics like alienation, depression and nonconformist politics.
The lyrics of their songs also showed intelligence and humor. Their single Institutionalized from this album featured a music video, which became the first hardcore punk videos to receive massive airplay. Later it was also featured on several films, including Repo Man and Iron Man.
Their second album was released in 1987 and titled “Join the Army”. It showed Suicidal Tendencies’ move towards a more metal-oriented sound as compared to their previous punk reflections. The songs, War Inside My Head and Possessed to Skate, made the album a hit and brought the band back into the spotlight once again.
Their first release by the turn of the decade was “Lights, Camera, Revolution” in 1990. The single, You Can’t Bring Me Down, received significant airplay. Later the album itself became certified gold as well. Soon after, the band attempted to widen their audiences with a string of arena shows in 1991.
Their 1992 album, “The Art of Rebellion”, was one of the most experimental albums of their career and saw Muir leading his band to the funk metal side. This record lessened the intensity of the group’s thrash influences and focused instead on a unique metal sound. It was also one of the most commercially successful albums released by Suicidal Tendencies. The moderate hit Asleep at the Wheel was accompanied by the two smashing hit singles, I’ll Hate You Better and Nobody Hears. At their commercial peak, Suicidal Tendencies gave another push to their soaring fan following and released, “Still Cyco After All These Years”, in 1993.
The band then took a hiatus, and much to the pleasure of their fans, returned in 1997 and released an EP, titled “Six the Hard Way” the following year. Fans welcomed this record and this led the band to release another album, “Freedumb”, in 1999.
So far, Suicidal Tendencies has nine studio albums and four split albums, including the rare “Welcome to Venice”, in its repertoire. Now you can watch this enduringly popular band performing live. Get the Suicidal Tendencies tickets before the stocks end.
