Best Social Distortion Songs

The Top Ten
1 Story of My Life Story of My Life Cover Art

Don't know what to think about this song, because I'm not a punk at all, but it's ok the song it's a 8/10 Never expected a more optimist song like this one even realising it's kinda crude (its meaning)

This is a song dedicated to school boys and for genius, if you are listening this right now. Believe that you're a genius.

The best song from SD ever. Deserves to be number 1. Great Guitar riff, amazing vocals, great solo what more do you need?

Simply a masterpiece, and much probably and is the greatest Cow-Punk song, ever realesed! I'm pretty sure about that.

2 Machine Gun Blues Machine Gun Blues Cover Art

Great hard pounding beat and the video immortalized it.

Machine Gun Blues! This has to be number 1 it's an amazing song with great lyrics

Machine Gun Blues it's a modern rock/punk masterpiece!

Not only is this a great song but it has a kickass music video to!

3 Ball and Chain Ball and Chain Cover Art

I've heard this song for the first time, while I was playing Saints Row: The Third, I inmediatelly threw-up myself into Social Distortion music, bit this song will always be the best song of Social Distortion at least for me

First SD song I ever heard way back on 106.1 the Zephyr in New Orleans. This was the song that first turned me onto this great band.

This song has one the nicest guitars, ever! And cool bass and rhythms ...

Very nice song with one of the best punk released chords.

4 Reach for the Sky Reach for the Sky Cover Art

A Great Song with a Great Meaning behind it!

Great song, great band

5 Don't Drag Me Down Don't Drag Me Down Cover Art

How can this be at number 8? Great lyrics, an incredible energy, and possibly my favorite guitar riff of all time. A punk rock masterpiece.

Ok I agree that the lyics don't make that much of a sense, but they do bring out emotions, esp of sadness & FRUSTRATION... The leads and rhythm are truly amazing...

Lyrics make perfect sense, riff is awesome, punk rock at its finest.

7 I Was Wrong I Was Wrong Cover Art

Got to make money to support the band, and this is a crowd pleaser. Love it. I'm also a Beatles fan.

I love it.. Nice song!

8 Angel's Wings Angel's Wings Cover Art

What? How is this not on the top ten? It's such a tender and genuine ballad. It's so beautiful and sweet.

Good song, with even a little bit better memories unified.

9 Ring of Fire Ring of Fire Cover Art

This is by far one of the best cover songs I have heard. Great interpretation of a Cash classic, period! Adds so much character to their eponymous debut. I have not heard all Cash cover songs, but I would say this is likely among the best.

Stupidest song I have ever heard in my whole entire life, and I mean I'm forty three and a musical genius. Playing several instruments. This song is really stupid and I really do not like any of it.

Best remake of a true classic song EVER! So good!

Great melody. Love it.

14 Prison Bound Prison Bound Cover Art

Amazing track, receives no support on radio or satellite radio, catchy hook, story telling lyrics... An absolute classic, best SD song out there... Plus, it basically was their come back to the music scene after being out for about 5 years...

Their best song... Great story telling... Sung with a lot of emotion and its great live also! Awesome lyrics!

One of their greatest songs in my opinion. Makes me want to go to lockdown! Plus it tells his story.

Their best song, punk rock story telling at its best, gets better with age!

15 So Far Away

Great song

Awesome guitar work

This song should of been a hit song

Wait never mind it can't be a hit cause it has no music video

Well the song is still awesome!
