SUICIDAL TENDENCIES’ self-titled debut is one of the essential extreme albums. Released four decades ago this year, Suicidal Tendencies is a stew of teen anger, squealing guitars, hilarious and confessional lyrics and replay-worthy songs.
The band plans to unleash their debut live in its entirety during their appearance at Metal and Beer Fest in Philadelphia, PA, with the two-day event going down April 14th and 15th at the Fillmore, brought to you by Decibel Magazine.
“It helped birth crossover and yet is in no way tethered to the genre. It made waves underground and then became part of pop culture. When I first heard the album, it was with a few other angst-ridden teens in a basement. Popular kids blasted “I Saw Your Mommy” in their cars by senior year. Who could blame them?: All the songs rule. ST (and Metallica, who now include one-time ST bassist Robert Trujillo) might be one of the first extreme bands embraced by the underground and later adopted by everyone.” – Decibel Magazine
