Sunday Old School: Suicidal Tendencies - "Institutionalized"

Hardcore is such a great means for getting rid of some teenage angst and aggression. Though that's not what really attracted me to the style, it was beneficial many times. While being far from the greatest song in history, I know I related to the underlying issue: that we're a product of the environment that our own families put us in, while at the same time leveling accusations at us that we're "out of step." If you don't like the song, I imagine you'll love the video.

Good old Venice Beach madness!

ST's debut album was fairly decent but, once Rocky took over the axe duties, they were a force to be reckoned with.
