Suicidal Tendencies

Suicidal Tendencies was formed in punk rock, heavy metal music thrash, and death band since 1982 in the city of Venice, California. The underground buzz regarding Suicidal Tendencies grew too loud for labels to ignore though, as the quartet signed on with the indie label Frontier Records[?] - issuing Mike Muir[?] & co's classic self-titled debut in 1983. The album quickly became the best-selling hardcore album up to that point, as its best known track, "Institutionalized," was one of the first hardcore/punk videos to receive substantial airplay on MTV, and was eventually used in the Emilio Estevez cult classic movie Repo Man, as well as in an episode for the hit TV show Miami Vice[?] (for which the group made a cameo appearance).
