SUICIDAL TENDENCIES have premiered a new music video for their track “All Kinda Crazy“. The live oriented clip features a guest cameo of sorts with it having been shot while former The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman was touring with the band.
Judging from their name, Suicidal Tendencies were never afraid of a little controversy. Formed in Venice, California, during the early ’80s, the group’s leader from the beginning was outspoken vocalist Mike Muir. The outfit specialized in vicious hardcore early on — building a huge following among skateboarders, lending a major hand in the creation of skatepunk — before turning their focus eventually to thrash metal.
ST proved influential for future speed/thrash metal bands, but despite their early success, their reputation preceded them, as no other record label was willing to take them on (in addition, Los Angeles banned the group from playing around this time, lasting until the early ’90s).
