D80sV #124: Suicidal Tendencies - Institutionalized

Daily 80's Video #124: Here's a nice capture of 1984, especially in the world of an angst-driven, or maybe not angst-driven "I just want a Pepsi" generation. Will somebody please give lead singer Mike Muir a Pepsi! Suicidal Tendencies is a California-based punk band turned crossover thrasher band formed in 1980 and is still going strong today, even if the only remaining original member is Muir, with about a zillion ex-members wandering the streets of Venice and parts unknown. For you Repo Man (1984) fans, this song might sound particularly familiar, along with all the other spastic music in that movie - Iggy Pop, Black Flag, Circle Jerks, The Plugz. Get some D80sV merch. Or maybe curl up with a good ebook. Go to next D80sV.
