Judging from their name, Suicidal Tendencies was never afraid of a little controversy. Formed in Venice, CA, during the early-80s, the group's leader from the beginning was outspoken vocalist Mike Muir. The outfit specialized in vicious hardcore early on - building a huge following among skateboarders, lending a major hand in the creation of skatepunk - before turning their focus eventually to thrash metal. The group found it increasingly difficult to book shows, due to rumors of its members' affiliation with local gangs and consistent violence at their performances. The underground buzz regarding Suicidal Tendencies grew too loud for labels to ignore however, as the quartet signed on with the indie label Frontier; issuing Muir and company's classic self-titled debut in 1983. The album quickly became the best-selling hardcore record of its era and its best-known track, "Institutionalized," was one of the first hardcore punk videos to receive substantial airplay on MTV.
