DRI
Abbreviation for Dirty Rotten Imbeciles is an American crossover thrash band that formed in Houston, Texas in 1982. D.R.I. never gained a mainstream audience, but the integration of their hardcore punk roots with thrash metal influences was a stylistic catalyst for their contemporaries — most notably Suicidal Tendencies, Corrosion of Conformity, S.O.D. and Cryptic Slaughter — alongside whom they are considered pioneers of what would later be called "crossover thrash."

In 2015 The track “I don’t need Society” was featured in the popular video game Grand Theft Auto 5 on the Radio Station Chanel X. D.R.I. has released seven original studio albums, the last of which was released in 1995. Since then, the band has continued touring and intermittently going on hiatus. For years, there has been talk of an eighth D.R.I. album, which has yet to materialize. However, they plan to release an EP containing new material in 2016.
