Social Distortion – “Greatest Hits”
Greatest Hits from one of the best American punk rock bands, formed in 1978 (in Orange County, California) often credited as one of the leading bands of the 1980s punk revival.
Social Distortion’s musical style began as decidedly punk rock, when the band formed in the late 1970’s. They are thought to be one of the pioneering bands of the original Southern California punk rock movement out of Orange County, California. In the mid-80’s there was a notable change in their style of music – taking more from their country music and classic rock and roll roots.
Social Distortion released their first Greatest Hits compilation on June 26, 2007. It includes their hit singles from Mommy’s Little Monster to Sex, Love and Rock ‘n’ Roll, but no songs from Mainliner are included. Along with a new studio recording of the song, “Far Behind”, new studio recordings of 6 of their classic songs are included as well.
