From the name you'd probably assume they're a HeavyMetal band[[note]]Actually, there is a UsefulNotes/{{Turkey}} Turkish]] DeathMetal band by that name[[/note]]. But, in fact, Suicide has been an incredibly influential electronic PunkRock band. Besides the fact that they were the first to use the phrase "punk music" to advertise one of their concerts way back in 1970, their "synthpunk" style proved to be an enormous influence on SynthPop, {{Techno}}, {{Industrial}} and many other electronics-based styles.

By the time of their second SelfTitledAlbum in 1980, they hooked up with [[Music/TheCars Ric Ocasek]] as a RecordProducer. Consequently, their second album was slightly more accessible and SynthPop-oriented than their nightmarish debut. Afterwards, Suicide lay dormant for a long time as Vega and Rev released solo albums - the most high-profile thing Vega did in this period was to contribute to [[TheSistersOfMercy The Sisterhood]]'s album ''Gift''. During their long hiatus they began to be recognized as an important influence on electronic and AlternativeRock music. They've come together every once in a while to release new albums.

* BathSuicide: Invoked with the original cover of their second self-titled album, which shows blood running into a bathtub drain and a hand. The back cover show's that it's just a woman who's cut herself shaving her legs.
