Get Schooled By Saint Vitus

In case you were looking to do some rocking out today (And, really, why wouldn’t you be?), I thought I would point you in the direction of the f*cking sweet rock band St. Vitus. Described by some as a doom metal band, they were from Los Angeles and formed in 1979. They rocked balls Black Sabbath-style and released most of their album’s on Black Flag guitarist Gregg Ginn’s SST label (which was also home to the Minutemen, Dinosaur Jr., Husker Du, Bad Brains, and a bunch of other sweet bands at various points in their careers). St. Vitus had monster riffs and monster mustaches and were not to be messed with. They had a handful of different singers over the years (most notably Wino from the Obsessed), but here the mic is rocked by Christian Linderson. Improve your life by rocking out to St. Vitus right now or I’ll kick you in the nuts. Dammit. If you'd like to keep the sludge coming, you might want to check out Saint Vitus guitarist Dave Chandler's new band Debris Inc. This band also comes Dave Hill-approved.
