Suicidal Tendencies is an American crossover thrash
band formed in 1982 in Venice, California. Sometimes regarded as the progenitors of skate punk
, they later incorporated significant heavy metal
elements. The group, led by Mike Muir ("Cyco Miko
"), had a rough start that included being voted "Worst Band/Biggest Assholes" in Flipside in 1982. Using the opposition to fuel creativity, they quickly gained a following, performing larger and larger gigs.
