Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell, you’ll find Mommy’s Little Monster, who is Prison Bound. In 2022, life is more than Sex, Love and Rock ‘n’ Roll, but we are looking to get back to more familiar things, and there is no better way to do that then with OC favorites, Social Distortion.
As most of you know, Social Distortion is led by Mike Ness, an icon in the punk scene and beyond since 1982.

Aside from their music being great, the lyrics speak to so many of their fans worldwide. Songs like “Story of My Life,” “Sick Boys,” “Bad Luck,” “Mommy’s Little Monster,” “Ball and Chain,” “Ring of Fire,” “When She Begins,” “I Was Wrong,” “Reach for the Sky,” “Drug Train,” “When Angels Sing,” and “Up Around the Bend,” “Sometimes I Do.” I mean, the list of hits goes on and on and on!
If you want to learn more about Social D’s music, you should check out their documentary, “Another State of Mind.” Or, from Ness himself, “The most common thing I hear is, ‘Man, your music got me through some hard times.’” To which Ness simply replied, “Me too.”
In their fourth decade, Social Distortion is electrifying as ever. The band features Ness on guitar and featured crooner, Johnny “2 Bags” Wickersham on guitar, Brent Harding on bass, and David Hidalgo, Jr. on drums. Ask anyone in the punk scene and they will say Social D has defied all odds; they are alive, doing well, enjoying life, and still kicking ass.
