Suicidal Tendencies was formed in Venice, Southern California, nearly thirty years ago and gathered a huge following among punkers and skaters with sounds like “Institutionalized” and “You Can’t Bring Me Down“.

They were a major contributor to the creation of skate punk genre, before the band changed its focus to thrash metal.

Vans homage for the band also includes a limited edition Era sneaker, which features a big skeleton face on the insole and the band’s logo across the heel, over a surprising light blue canvas.
