Mike Ness might just be the most punk rock out of all his peers. As the only remaining original member of punk rockers and rockabilly heros Social Distortion, Ness has clocked more than three decades as frontman of the group, refusing to back down after years of loss, abuse, law troubles and too many lineup changes to count. But fuck the man; he’s still going. And classics like “Story of My Life,” “Ball and Chain” and “Reach for the Sky” will still kick ass for generations to come.
