Social Distortion is a punk rock band born in the late 1970s. The band debuted in Fullerton, Calif. and is playing a gig at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa on Aug. 6. The sound of the group includes gritty, distorted guitars, and catchy melodies with witty, outlaw lyrics. Songs such as “Story of My Life” and “Ball and Chain” (released in the year 1990) by Social Distortion, accrued national fame and are featured in many popular movies, such as “Orange County,” “Reality Bites,” and “The Break-Up.” Social Distortion’s first album, “Mommy’s Little Monster,” was released in 1983, making this year the 40th anniversary of the album that gave a national name among punk circles to the band. The band came out of the hardcore punk scene of the late 70s along with rock staples like the Adolescents, and Youth Brigade.
Regarding the performances of Social Distortion, mosh pits are a staple of any of the band’s shows as are driving rhythms and biting melodies. The band is touring from June to August 2023 across the United States. However, tickets for the show at Cain’s Ballroom are limited, so be sure to grab them before it is too late to see punk legend singer and guitarist, Mike Ness of Social Distortion put on a show and have a true “Rock ‘n’ Roll weekend.”
