Social Distortion - can you believe it they are still touring!!?

I was listening to some Social Distortion on my computer this morning while i worked and it came back how much i really enjoyed their music.

I went online to check how many cd's of theirs i didn't own and noticed on their website it had a section for "tour dates" !!! WTF? I thought these guys were all old and dead. I had no idea they still toured.

Can you imagine how cool it would be to see them in Buenos Aires - apart from the fact that i'm going to France for a month in May i would seriously consider flying there just to see them.

I found this clip on You Tube from June 2009 in Sweden and it looks like they rock and are still as tight as ever.

And in case you've never had the lucky benefit of someone exposing you at an early age to the beat fueled rush of 110 bpm punk i uploaded a few of their tracks to the song music of the day box on the bottom right.

There is a reason that their albums get 95% 5 star votes on Amazon - Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell, White Light, White Heat, White Trash, Live at the Roxy

I also uploaded one of my favorite tracks below - no matter how young you are, you can lose someone close to you in an instant and regret things not said forever.
