Suicidal Tendencies  


Hailing from Venice Beach, the name Suicidal Tendencies became synonymous with the LA skatecore scene, a scene they essentially created (other similar/related bands in this groups would be Beowulf and Excel). Their 1983 self-titled debut album, featuring their classic "Institutionalized", is still regarded as a seminal hardcore album. Four years later would see the follow-up, Join The Army, by which time they had essentially become a thrash band, though still retaining their hardcore roots and attitude. A string of successful albums were released in the late eighties and early nineties, with the band deciding to break up in 1995 following '94's Suicidal For Life. Several years later leader Mike Muir brought some members from the Suicidal side project Infectious Grooves, and by 1999 the band was back in action, and is still active today. Several past members have contributed to other bands, with the most recent (and most notable) being Robert Trujillo's joining Metallica.
