Suicidal Tendencies is a LA punk group from the early 80s. This video for “Institutionalized” is classic: skateboarding, hot color tees and punk music. Also included is a milkcrate in use, helping the parents to build out a padded room for lead vocalist Mike Muir.

The two man band, “Uncle Scratch Gospel Revival” is a bit unorthodox. The drummer uses a steel milkcrate, upside down as a cymbal. I like it. –> Uncle Scratch Gospel Revival kicks the drums at the Smokeout 10 via Examiner.com
I always loved the song “Nitro Burning Funny Cars” by the Dead Milkmen. There’s a line in that song that I’ll paraphrase… no one will ever write a song about nitro burning funny cars. The same could be said of milk crates – but Franklin Bruno did write that song–thank goodness.
I know this should be a simple question to answer. There is some history here. In the 70s they changed the sizeÂ of milkcrates, and milk gallon jugs because people were stealing milkcrates at an alarming rate.Â LPs fit perfectly in the older sized crates. The new crates still accommodate records, but you have to put them at a slight angle. Not as sweet, but still quite functional. But, then CDs took over, so the issue was moot.
Anyway, enough of the history lesson, the kids over at TribalWar (a gaming blog) discuss this in the forums.
