To be considered a punk rock legend, you must have been cranking out cool tunes before the Nirvanas of the world came around. Suicidal Tendencies has been one of the best punk bands since the days before you and I first banged our heads. This 1990 release of "Lights, Camera, Revolution" is Suicidal's best release. It is also the only album they recorded that is more influenced by heavy metal than punk. All songs on this effort are truly classics especially "You Can't Bring Me Down" and "Alone." Vocalist Mike Muir puts more lyrics into his songs then anyone else I've listened to, and Rocky George wails on his guitar leads. This album is a classic punk/metal album.

SUICIDAL TENDENCIES is: Robert Trujillo on bass; Rocky George on guitar; Mike Clark on guitar; Mike Muir on vocals; R.J. Herrera on drums.
