Social Distortion released the band's first album in more than six years, "Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes," in January 2011. The effort, which peaked at No. 4 on The Billboard 200, is the outfit's first to make it into the chart's Top 10, as well as the first to be produced by singer/guitarist Mike Ness.
