Better When They Sucked - Suicidal Tendencies

Suicidal Tendencies released one of the most important West Coast punk albums in 1983 with their debut album.  They steadily went downhill after that, and in 1993 decided to re-record the entire album in Mike Muir's crappy new voice.  At the time I thought this was a big FU to the fans of the original, but it turns out they didn't have rights to re-release the original, so they just re-recorded the whole thing.  Kind of like 1990's Night of the Living Dead.  Which also pales next to the original.

Listening to it now, it's not as bad as I remember.  At least Mike Muir hadn't gotten into funk yet.
