I don’t, in essence, have a problem with Social Distortion. Individual elements of what they created are fine, but, as a band, it was kind of blah. I will contest that “It’s the Law” is a damn fine song. Hell, if I’m in the right mood (drunk), I might even admit to liking “Mommy’s Little Monster.”, but I never saw how they were good enough to warrant other bands using them as a template for a defining sound. If you’re one of those people who are angry that Social Distortion hasn’t released an album since 2004, maybe this will be up your alley.
