Menace to Sobriety is the second album by Ugly Kid Joe. It was released in 1995 (see 1995 in music). The album title is an obvious allusion to the movie "Menace II Society". It received favourable reviews & reached number 2 on the UK's rock album charts, in the first week of its release. "Milkman's Son" and "Tomorrow's World" were released as singles. Music videos were released for "Tomorrow's World", "Milkman's Son", and "Cloudy Skies".
