Social Distortion’s First Time

11:01 AM Thursday 12/2/10 | |

Since its 1978 founding, Social Distortion has endured drug problems, break ups and run-ins with the law. However, throughout its 32-year history the band has never performed on television. But that’s going to change come Dec. 6.

Sure, the band’s videos have appeared on the tube, but Mike Ness & Company have never performed on any of the late night talkers. When you consider all the shows that have aired over the years, from Carson to Letterman to Leno to Conan, the band’s absence from TV land seems even more remarkable.

But that particular piece of Social D trivia gets an update Monday, Dec. 6 when the band appears on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

The timing works out perfectly for the band, coming only a few days before Social Distortion plays the annual “KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas” Southern California at Universal City’s Gibson Amphitheatre At Univ. CityWalk, and just a few weeks before it launches its first 2011 tour in Las Vegas at House Of Blues Jan. 20-21 followed by a run through West Coast towns such as Bakersfield, Hollywood, San Francisco, Seattle and Portland as well as the raisin capital of the known universe – Fresno, U.S.A.

    I will not defend the Grammy nomination process. I don't have to. Everyone has their own opinion as to what is qualifying and what is not. But the fact that Arcade Fire headlined Lollapalooza in 2010, the fact that Arcade Fire will headline Coachella in 2011, and that Arcade Fire sold out MSG speaks volumes of the disparity between reality and your narrative of my somehow being out-of-touch or a mark of some sort.

    I like Arcade Fire; that fact is not germane to the fact that I saw Social Distortion live in concert and didn't believe they played very well live on that day.

    Grammy Nominations are as questionable in this day & age as being nominated to the Rock Hall of Fame.  Here is a list of those being nominated for 2011 Grammy Album of the Year:

    Arcade Fire


    Lady Antebellum

    Lady Gaga

    Katy Perry

    You sort of bagged on the Katy Perry Supreme as 'Divas' Salutes Troops pollstar story yet Good Old Katy is also up for Album of the Year!!

    If she wins I will have a Pint to Salute You!

    Music is subjective, and this list for 2011 Album of the Year Subjectively SUCKS no matter what your musical preferences are!

    I can be secure of the fact that the group I have seen the most live in concert is considered one of the best live artists performing today, not to mention recipient of a recent Grammy nomination for Best Album sans radio play. Let's see Social D sell out MSG, or headline anything besides their own junk shows at the House of Blues.

    To each their own, just don't attack me at a personal level because I simply stated an opinion you don't hold to be a personal truth. Music is subjective.

    I can get you in Delta!  You can stand in the front & wear your Arcade Fire Shirt, clown wig and John 3:16 sign.

    Yeah, because I didn't like them means that it is definitely something wrong with me. Here is a comprehensive list of the artists I've seen live in concert ( SEE: www.nhbgear.com/.../topic,63778.msg1425539.html ) (Social D, along with the headliner for the specific radio fest where I saw them, Linkin' Park, are among the very worst I've seen live); because I was in a fraternity when I was in college, then it absolutely means I should be made "fun of". Make fun of the only guy here who is actually educated. *hurries to a cheap tattoo parlor to get 'SOCIAL D 4 LIF' inked on neck*

    Hahahahaha...Social D is not a frat boy band, DeltaSigChi4, so I'm not surprised you didn't like them.  In fact, they make fun of people like you.
