If you can imagine a cross between Less Than Jake, The Offspring and Nickleback, with a bit of Greenday in there too, this is it. It makes for a great album, but with only 9 tracks, it's much too short.

"I love the sound when I smash the glass" 4 Feb. 2001
By "skilly101" - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is the first record I ever fell in love with, I found it in the "hardcore" section of the local mall chain store when I was 15. As soon as "The Creeps"(1st song) kicked in , I knew I had found the style of music I would be listening to for the duration of my teenage years.It was as if a door to a secret society called punk had been opened. Unfortunately, while I listened to a literal ton of great punk bands during my youth, very few ever came close to "Mommy's" era S.D. While music(especially punk rock) is subjective, for me S.D. nailed it with this one. The perfectly distorted guitar, the melodies trying to find thier way through the agression, and especially Ness's SoCal accented raw teenage voice piercing through it all. This guy's vocals are unmistakable, with Joe Strummer being his only competition for finest punk vox. "Mommys" also captures one of the last earnest moments in punk rock. The now dated belief that punk was a real thing, a real lifestyle and culture vibrates through these songs. This album has all the menace and also the poignancy formerly associated with punk that is missing from current "punk" bands.I've since grown away from punk, but I still have this record, probably always will.

best punk rock album ever 16 May 2005
By Jennifer M. Nurse - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I fell in love w/ Mike Ness and Social D in the 80s. They toured constantly, it seemed like they came to the Cameo Theatre in Miami Beach (and when that shut down, 1235) at least 2X a year. Best energy at those shows, everyone screaming our lungs out to songs that told our stories. If you don't get amped listening to this album, you should really stick to emo-core fluffy music, and quit calling yourself a punk rocker.

The new stuff is just as good, but is more of a showcase for Mike Ness' phenomenal songwriting ability. My favorite band in the whole wide world. God bless Social D, they have fed my spirit for 20 years.

This Music Personifies How Real Punk Rockers Are! 21 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Mike Ness and the rest of Social D were a bunch of ruthless punks out to have a good time and share their music with the rest of us. They (along with two other bands) were the first punk artists to have a North American tour in the early 80's. Through the experiences from this tour came one of Social D's most poignant songs, "Another State of Mind", where singer Mike Ness was being faced with either continuing the tour or quitting like some of his buddies did. Many teens related to these punk icons and believed in what they stood for. For me, this band will forever be a part of who I am. Don't forget to listen to "Telling Them" and "Creeps." (Lee)

Getting Distorted 26 Mar. 2002
By J. Muder - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This album knocks me out, the first time I listened to it, and every time I listen to it. This is the voice of original street punk, Orange County style, after the scene had eaten itself and the dust had cleared. Social Distortion's honesty, brutality, and pure talent enabled them to stay vital for all these years. Mike Ness is undoubtedly one of the most talented rock guitarists out there, punk or otherwise, and on this record, his riffs don't harmonize so much as they attack and destroy. Stand-outs on the album include "Telling Them," "Another State of Mind," and "Moral Threat." Every Social D. album is a masterpiece, but this one is exceptional. Mommy's Little Monster has undoubtedly influenced any modern-day "punk" band, remaining a well-documented testimonial of what it was like to be young, angry, and powerless.

A Classic Punk Record! 16 Oct. 2005
By paul draven - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I grew up on this album as well as Social D's "Mainliner:wreckage from the past" and let me tell you that after 10+ years of listening they have lost absolutely none of their power! I am not a fan of much social D after the early punk years. When mike ness lost the ability to sing reasonably and they became a weird rockabilly/country from the heart type band I said goodbye. If you enjoy bands like Black Flag,Circle Jerks,T.S.O.L. and others from that time period and cali location than you will certainly dig every second of this. The only problem I really ever had with Mommy's Little Monster was that it's only 9 songs long and that the album versions of All The Answers and Moral Threat don't live up to the Earlier ones (which appear on "mainliner"). Do yourself a favor and pick both up right now!
