Best Social Distortion SongssamuelMCL7
The Top Ten
The best song from SD ever. Deserves to be number 1. Great Guitar riff, amazing vocals, great solo what more do you need?
This is simply one of social distortions greatest songs. And I'm trying to figure out why it's not number 1
Tells an excellent story and has a really catchy beat. Instant classic!5 Comments
Machine Gun Blues it's a modern rock/punk masterpiece!
I think this song it's cool and the best SD song ever!
Machine Gun Blues! This has to be number 1 it's an amazing song with great lyrics

Great song, great band
A Great Song with a Great Meaning behind it!
My favorite song,i relly love,should be on #1
AWESOME song, never get tired of listening to it. - Amz_P
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.
Lyrics make perfect sense, riff is awesome, punk rock at its finest.
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...
this is a great song, I really like it, as well as most social distortion songs- one of my favorite bands!
Number one. This is the one that turned me on to SD.
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!
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.
I't was the best song at my sons funerel :(
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.
This is 1 of the best song by them it should have been in top 5 list
Best remake of a true classic song EVER! So good!
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.
Great melody. Love it.
This song started it all; it is so good - SliderRob31
Great song- should be much higher
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!
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!
Should be rated higher.
Best Social D song ever!
Easily a top 5 song for me. Great vocals and relaxing instrumentals. I just love it!
Many good SD songs in the top tier but Far Behind needs to move way up on the list! Mike Ness at his best! - SociallyxxDistorted
We all know someone like this. Great lyrics and even better riffs
This is such an amazing song!
One of My favourite songs to stick on, proper Rock N Roll tune! - daarman01
Why you can forget this first best song os SD?
How is their most kickass tune only at 29? It was the first track of theirs I heard, great vocal, killer guitar, I can't understand why it isn't one of their greatest hits.
I Love every single one of Social Distortion's songs, something about let it be me is above the rest for me. I find myself repeatedly playing this song on my guitar, repeatedly listening to it on the phone when I ride the bus or the train. funny enough, this song's got the simplest of patterns, only two chords with the same progression for the entire song, verse and chorus, but tight timing for all the instruments, the guitar sound never sounded better, the bass is doing it's work perfectly, the lyrics are deep but catchy, the singing is top notch especially in the end where mike ness reaches his highest notes, and the guitar solo is a perfect combination of hard rock and blues, the best solo mike has ever done in my opinion. this song is the perfect image for social d. the rhythm and heaviness of punk rock with melodies of country and blues thrown in and it feels so right. - - AvivDavidSD
Great traffik jam... Laugh out loud
Found this song years ago. At just the right time.
