The self-proclaimed “greatest rock ’n’ roll band in the world” is heading to the South Shore for another visit.
The Supersuckers play Whiskey Dick’s Saloon Monday, Oct. 14. The band has been at it for 25 years.
“Our story is almost impossible to believe,” according to the band’s website. “This band is literally a human cartoon. We all grew up among the dead-ends and cactus needles of Tucson, Arizona and have known each other since grade school. We graduated from the same high school together at the same time (a school immortalized in our song ‘Santa Rita High’) and we chose to play in a band together because we liked to hang out together, not because we were great musicians or anything,”
Among its crowning achievements, the band lists playing Woodstock 2000, playing the Reading/Leeds festivals and recording with Eddie Vedder, Steve Earle and Kelley Deal.
“We’ve also been touring our asses off all over the world with bands like Mudhoney, Social Distortion, Bad Religion, The Ramones, Motorhead, The Toadies, The Butthole Surfers, The Reverend Horton Heat, The Dwarves and White Zombie,” according to the website. “We’ve played a couple of Farm Aid shows and backed Willie Nelson on The Tonight Show. Our music has appeared in T.V. shows (Beverly Hills 90210), Movies (Baseketball, Hype) and commercials (Mountain Dew) as well as countless snow and skateboarding video compilations.”
