Our friends at MP3.com recently relaunched their site, and to celebrate we’re helping them give away some fantastic new songs for free! Today, we’re featuring “Gimme the Sweet and Lowdown” from Social Distortion.

Aging is a tricky thing for a punk band, but West Coast vets [mp3com-artist]Social Distortion[/mp3com-artist] have handled it with grace. “Gimme the Sweet and Lowdown,” from their new album Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, proves they still have the musical chops and rocker attitude to carry the day.

After 25 years, Social Distortion have established something of a trademark style, telling street tales of guys down on their luck, tough chicks and cool cars over the propulsive chug of distorted punk guitars, which they first established on their seminal 1988 album Prison Bound.

“Gimme the Sweet and Lowdown” follows a similar format, telling the story of a guy chasing a girl who already has plenty of trouble to deal with. With its catchy guitar riffs and frontman Mike Ness’ gruff vocals, it’s another classic Social Distortion tune, sure to please fans old and new.
