Do other places have their own versions of Social Distortion? Can you run into the Dictators Handsome Dick Manitoba strutting down the street in New York City and think, Thisthis guy is this place brought to life!? Because although this very paper voted the Adolescents the No. 1 OC band of all time, Social Distortion are probably one of the OC-iest OC bands of all timeunder the expert tutelage of Mike Ness, they wrap up Okie-country roots and trashy Brit-style punk and suburban underbelly-dwelling storytelling into the total SoCal punk package. Cowboy hats and tatssomebody should put that on a city seal. With way-up-and-coming locals Suedehead and more.
