Fact; Suicidal Tendencies have and never will better this album. Whilst they have made some excellent albums over the past number of years, (Join The Army and Freedumb in particular), none of them are able to match the passion, humour and sheer genius of this self-titled debut. Suicidal
Tendencies raged with the best of them, but what makes them stand out from the rest is the sense of humour. So clearly on display here, especially on the likes of Institutionalised' and 'I saw your mommy'. Lines such as 'All I wanted was one Pepsi, just one Pepsi and she wouldn't give it to me' from the aforementioned 'Institutionalised' show that the band had a funny side as well. The album which thunders along at a thunderous pace, barely pausing for breath, helped to single-handedly invent the skate punk sound, which though admirably imitated by NOFX and their peers never comes close to matching the original.
