Suicidal Tendencies (also known as S.T. or simply Suicidal) is an American crossover thrash band founded in 1980 in Venice,California by vocalist Mike Muir, who is the only remaining original member of the band.
The band is often credited (along with D.R.I.) as one of "the fathers of crossover thrash".
Suicidal Tendencies rose to fame with their 1983 self-titled debut album, which spawned the single "Institutionalized", and was one of the first hardcore punk videos to receive substantial airplay on MTV.
