D.R.I. Homepage

Country of origin: flag

D.R.I. stands for Dirty Rotten Imbeciles. They are considered by many to be "the fathers of crossover thrash" along with Suicidal Tendencies, Stormtroopers of Death, M.O.D., Excel and Beowülf. The genre "crossover" was also coined from their 1987 album which basically sums up the sound of the thrash metal/hardcore punk hybrid.

The music discographies on this site are works in progress. If you notice that a particular D.R.I. CD release or compilation is missing from the list above, please submit that CD using the CD submission page. The ultimate goal is to make the discographies here at Brutal Metal as complete as possible. Even if it is an obscure greatest-hits or live compilation CD, we want to add it to the site. Please only submit official CD releases; no bootlegs or cassette-only or LP-only releases.

EPs and CD-singles from D.R.I. are also welcome to be added, as long as they are at least 4 songs in length.

Links to CD cover art can be posted over in the Brutal Metal forum/message board.
