In the late'90s they seemed to realize they were a better punk band then metal band and switched back to their roots. It wasn't great but it was better the most of the stuff they did prior. So what will this one be? I'm thinking more punk, which I look forward to - if it's metal then I'll pass.
Suicidal Tendencies were one of my favorites when I was a kid. I was fascinated by the whole latin street gang playing punk aspect. The early style they had was pretty original at the time and helped pave the way for an entire genre. The first band I ever saw was ST when they opened for Metallica and Danzig. I was about 12 and a big fat biker guy tried to pass me a joint.
ST website is pretty damn good - tons of cool things to check out. Anyway here are a few tunes from the SuiCyko's.
Oh and by the way, I've noticed like 18 year old kids rockin' the ST style hat with the brim flipped up on the streets of NYC lately. I even see them with "Suicidal" written underneath.
