Suicidal Tendencies - albums

How will I Laugh tomorrow when I can't even Smile Today

One of the most self-indulgent thrash groups around providing agressive and sometimes weird music without compromising their musical style. With the concept of derangement and alienation pervading through all their songs, this album hits you hard with powerful lyrics and Mike Muir's almost-whining vocals.

Lights, Camera, Revolution

This is my favourite Suicidal Tendencies album. Each song is a gem, from the violent (You Can't Bring me Down) to the warped (Lovely) to the (almost-melancholic) Alone.

The Art of Rebellion

This is something they know a lot about. Just like Motörhead, these guys are pretty consistent in putting out the kind of music that is symbolised by their name.

Still Cyco after All these Years

More violent than their previous albums, this album is ferocious but still maintains the same rebelious attitude that we have now come to love. Again, the lyrics hit you right where it counts:

"I'm not anti-society, society's anti-me.
 I'm not anti-religion, religion is anti-me.
 I'm not anti-___, ___'s anti-me. (*)
 I'm not anti-government, government's anti-me.
 I'm not anti-politics, politics is anti-me.
 I'm not anti-anything, I just wanna be free.

 * (fill in the blank---it was Reagan, now it's Clinton---the
    more it "changes", the more it stays the same.)"
                    --Suicidal Tendencies, Two-sided Politics

Apparently, this is a remake of their first self-titled album, which was released in 1982.
