Suicide is an American synthpunk music duo intermittently active since 1971 and composed of vocalist Alan Vega and Martin Rev on synthesizers and drum machines. Listening to their self-titled 1977 debut from the vantage point of late 2002, it's all so obvious: the synthpop, techno, and industrial dance sounds of the '80s and '90s, and now the new New Wave of electroclash, all gesture back to that foundational album." You could say that they invented modern day synth-pop.
Suicide took their name from the title of a Ghost Rider comic book titled Satan Suicide, a favourite comic book of Alan Vega.
Todays tune "Ghost Rider" is taken from "Suicides first album aka 1977" the tune has been covered by R.E.M., The Horrors, The Gories, Rollins Band, The Sisters of Mercy, Merzbow and The Young Gods, and was featured in a Brazilian deodorant commercial in 2005.
