  • To date, Social Distortion has released seven full-length studio albums, two compilations, one live album, and two DVDs
  • They released two albums — Mommy's Little Monster (1983) and Prison Bound (1988) — before signing a three-album contract with Epic Records in 1989
  • Social Distortion rose to fame with their 1990 self-titled third album, which produced their well-known hit singles "Ball and Chain", "Story of My Life", and the cover of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire", and was certified gold by RIAA
  • Many of their later albums, including their second gold record Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell (1992), were also well received
