|Social Distortion chronology|
Prison Bound is the second studio album by Social Distortion, was released in 1988. This is the first album with bass guitarist John Maurer and drummer Christopher Reece. It expands upon the punk sound of the band's highly regarded but commercially unsuccessful first album Mommy's Little Monster (1983) by adding elements of Johnny Cash style country and The Rolling Stones style rock and roll.
Today, Prison Bound is looked upon as a turning point for Social Distortion, paving the way for the commercial success they achieved on their next album, Social Distortion, which was released two years later.
The first track, "It's the Law", is a remake of "Justice for All", which appeared on the 1981 compilation album "The Future Looks Bright" (and later on the 1995 compilation album Mainliner: Wreckage from the Past). The fifth track, "Prison Bound", was only released as a single on KROQ-FM. The album contains a cover version of "Backstreet Girl" originally recorded by the Rolling Stones. The album's title track contains a reference to Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line". The band went on to cover Cash's "Ring of Fire" on their next album.
