Muir grew up in Santa Monica, California, along with his brother Jim Muir of the famous Z-Boys skateboarding team. After being expelled from high school in tenth grade, he attended Santa Monica College.

Muir was introduced to metal music early in his childhood by his brother Jim. When he was 17 years old, he formed a punk band called Suicidal Tendencies, becoming its lead vocalist. Three years later, the band signed with the independent label Frontier Records and released their debut, self-titled album, containing the hit song “Institutionalized”. The music video of the song eventually became one of the first hardcore punk videos to receive substantial MTV airplay, significantly contributing to the band’s popularity. Muir’s net worth started to rise.

Since then, the band has been on numerous tours and to festivals around the world; however, in 1984 they went on a four-year hiatus. During this time, Muir founded the band “Los Cycos”, releasing its debut recording on his newly formed Suicidal Records label. The album was, however, released only on vinyl and cassette.

Suicidal Tendences returned in 1987, and started to record more metal-oriented music, establishing what would become crossover trash. This was evident in their second album, the 1987 “Join the Army”. The following year they signed with Epic Records, and went on to release three more albums, among them “Lights… Camera… Revolution!”, which became a trash classic. Their music would eventually get funk influences as well, with bassist Robert Trujilo being responsible for that. As Muir was becoming more and more interested in funk, he and Trujilo formed a funk metal side project called Infectious Grooves, which released their debut album in 1991, “The Plague That Makes Your Booty Move… It’s the Infectious Grooves”, with the song “Therapy” featuring Ozzy Osbourne and which boosted their popularity. They went on to release three more albums by 2000, all of which contributed to Muir’s wealth.

In 1992 Suicidal Tendencies released their album “Art of Rebellion”, which became their most commercially successful and highest charting album, containing the hits “Nobody Hears” and “I’ll Hate You Better”. As the band’s popularity grew, Muir’s net worth followed it, but after a few more albums came out by 1994, the band started to fall apart. However, in 1996, Suicidal Tendencies reunited and released new material, but only to disband again in 2001. The following year they reunited again and started to tour, but went on hiatus in 2004, as Muir had to undergo a back surgery.

They started with tours again the following year, but didn’t release a new album in 2010. Their last album came out in fall 2016, with Muir announcing that this may be the band’s final studio album.

Aside from the bands, Muir has also released three solo albums under the pseudonym Cyco Miko, under Suicidal Records. He has also collaborated with other bands and musicians, such as with No Mercy, Excel and P.O.D., to name a few.

Muir has also been featured on television. His house has appeared as a “horror house” in the Discovery Channel show “Monster House”, and he has also appeared on the Action Sports celebrity boxing match, in which he fought against and lost to Simon Woodstock.

When in comes to his personal life, Muir is a married man with three children, but keeps his family life largely private.
