New Social D!

"Far Behind" which will be included on the upcoming Greatest Hits album slated for a June 26 release, started getting airplay on May 15th, and the band has been playing it around, including in this video, which was taken at the KROQ Weenie Roast. As much as I hate KROQ shows, and as much as KROQ jocks annoy me (the one on the file is Stryker, who is actually one of the few likable and friendly ones who knows when to shut up, unlike the chick who took over his timeslot recently who does not know when to SHUT UP), I swoon over anything and everything Social D, especially Mr Mike Ness ("Michael Ness," as you'll hear Stryker refer to him, and I'm pretty sure he always calls him that) so, here's the Weenie Roast video, and the only file of the song I could find. Sorry about the radio jockey chatter.

Far Behind mp3, recorded by someone off of KROQ, thanks to that wonderful someone

&, here's the "News" item from the Social D website.
