|Mike Ness of Social Distortion|
With over thirty years of success as one of the pioneering bands of the original Southern California punk rock movement, Fullerton-formed Social Distortion continues to make an unforgettable contribution through music in Orange County and around the globe. The January 2011 release of their seventh studio album titled Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes led the band to their first career network television performance, a Billboard Top 200 debut at number 4, an extensive tour schedule including Australia and Europe, and plans to continue writing new material for near future albums. 2011 marks the start of a record breaking year for one of Orange County's most influential bands and it is with great honor that OC Music Awards present Social Distortion with the Orange County Impact Award.
