"sex, love and rock 'n' roll" is the sixth album by californian punk rock band Social Distortion. It is their first studio album in eight years, since the release of "White Light, White Heat, White Trash" in 1996, the longest gap between Social Distortion's studio albums to date. The album was originally scheduled to be released in the fall of 2000, but was not yet completed, and it was officially released on September 28, 2004. A great deal of the album is a musical eulogy to former guitarist Dennis Danell, who died in 2000. The album's opening track, "Reach for the Sky", was released in late 2004 and became one of Social Distortion's biggest hits. Social Distortion could not release a follow-up to "White Light, White Heat, White Trash" partly because of their various other activities, most obviously those of frontman Mike Ness. He released two solo albums in 1999, one with original material ("Cheating at Solitaire") and one with song covers ("Under the Influences"). Due to his touring schedule with the band, "Sex, Love and Rock 'n' Roll" was set aside for a number of years before finally being completed in 2004. The song "Nickels and Dimes" is a play on hardcore punk band Minutemen masterpiece album "Double Nickels on the Dime".

This grouping gathers together all versions of the "White Light, White Heat, White Trash" album, originally released in 1996, as well as subsequent repressings and bootleg versions. "White Light, White Heat, White Trash" is the fifth album by American punk rock band, Social Distortion, released on September 17, 1996, by Epic Records. The album was produced by Michael Beinhorn. "White Light, White Heat, White Trash" is the last Social Distortion album to feature guitarist Dennis Danell who died on February 29, 2000, of a cerebral aneurysm at the age of 38. It is also the band's last release on Epic Records. The album received Social Distortion's highest ever chart position, entering the Billboard 200 album chart at #27. Stylistically, the album is harder and considered a return to their punk roots. The title of the album is a play on the 1968 Velvet Underground album, "White Light/White Heat". The Velvet Underground record is known for being one of the most original, and probably the heaviest, records of the time, just as "White Light, White Heat, White Trash" for Social Distortion has a harder sound than those albums preceding it.
