US punk supergroup formed in 1980 in California from former members of Agent Orange, Social Distortion and other bands. Although they broke up in 1981, the band has continued to reform (and split, and reform) ever since, with a changing line-up.
The current line-up contains original founding members Tony Cadena and Steve Soto. The third founder member, Frank Agnew, finally left the band in 2011.
The Adolescents self-titled debut album was released in 1981 and reissued in 2001 to mark the 20th anniversary.
