"Under the Influences", the second (and most recent) solo album from Social Distortion's Mike Ness, is a compilation of country, rock, and bluegrass covers released just six months after his first solo effort, "Cheating at Solitaire". As the title implies, Ness intends the album to be an illustration of the music that shaped him. Songs as diverse as "I Fought the Law" and "Wildwood Flower" make their appearance, each with Mike Ness's unique spin. Included is a honky tonk version of Social Distortion staple, "Ball and Chain".
