hahahahahaha I don't know why I even bother reviewing new releases from Suicidal Tendencies. I guess it's because I have so much time and amazing memories associated with the band, for better or for worse. It can't be anything else. I keep hoping for a "return to greatness" kind of thing from the band, not necessarily the greatness of the self-titled classic first album, but greatness more along the lines of 1999's Freedumb release maybe? I dunno. Songs like Ain't Mess'n Around (originally a Cyco Miko solo song) Get United and SED sound tired and forced, Authority sounds like a rejected Infectious Grooves tune, and the most criminal act on display on this album is the hugely underutilization of drum god Dave Lombardo's drumming skills. They are entirely wasted on this petri dish of bad musical bacteria. Brooks Wackerman was a better drummer for Suicidal Tendencies than Dave Lombardo is, but I guess you make the best musically with what you're given. Phooey. I don't know why there's 4 different versions of the title track Get Your Fight On on this EP but there is, one acoustic, one bass instrumental, one guitar instrumental, and then the original track from their World Gone Mad release that they put out a few years ago. AND, just to pile onto the musical mediocrity that this EP release is, they throw in a cover of Iggy And The Stooges classic I Got A Right - the first official cover song ever done by Suicidal Tendencies, so there ya go! 😁😁😁 Unless you're some sort of a Suicidal Tendencies junkie that needs to hear everything that the band has ever done, you can skip this release without missing out on a thing. Musical mediocrity at it's finest. Pass.
