Social Distortion
(sometimes referred to simply as Social D) is an American rock band formed in 1978 in Fullerton, Orange County, California.  The band currently consists of Mike Ness (vocals, guitars), Jonny Wickersham (guitars), Brent Harding (bass) and Charlie Quintana (drums). They are often credited as one of the leading bands of the 1980s hardcore punk explosion.

The group briefly disbanded in 1985, due to frontman Ness' drug addiction, but reformed around 1986 and have continued being active today, even after the death of longtime guitarist Dennis Danell, who succumbed to a brain aneurysm in 2000. Since their inception the band lineup has been a virtual revolving-door of talent, with many members coming and going – Ness has been the only constant member. The band's classic line-up is Ness on guitar and vocals, Danell on guitar, John Maurer on bass and Chris Reece on drums.

To date, Social Distortion has released six full-length studio albums, two compilations, one live album and two DVDs. Their most recent studio album, Sex, Edit Social Distortion - LunchLove and Rock 'n' Roll, came out on September 28, 2004. They also released their first Greatest Hits compilation on June 26, 2007. Recently, there has been a rumor that the band has returned to the studio working their seventh album, which is reportedly due for release sometime in 2009.
