Gross Misconduct is the second album from crossover thrash metal band, M.O.D.. It was released in 1989 on Megaforce Records and Noise International and follows 1988's Surfin' M.O.D. It was three years until the band released another record, with Rhythm of Fear in 1992.

Overview[edit]

Lyrically, Milano tackled less controversial issues than previously (including his time with S.O.D.) and the music was more accessible – the upshot of which was a more commercial offering.

The music video for "True Colors" starts off with a Slash look-alike plugging his guitar into the amp before being pushed out of the way by Billy Milano.
