band from California
Thye're smart as hell. Here's why:
Greg Graffin, the lead singer has PhD
in in evolutionary biology from Cornell
Brett Gurewitz, the guitarist formed Epitaph Records
, one of the largest indepdent labels.
So they make great muisc and know what theyre talking about.
They had a 7-year stint on Atlantic Records
they went back to Epitaph in 2001 becuase of poor expourse. They were only called sell outs by Brett Gurewitz, who had left the band when they went major and then rejoined when the came back to Epitaph.
Let them eat war!
That's how to ration the poor!
the very best punk band ever, they rockmysoxoff. its a shame they arent as famous as good charlotte, because bad religion could teach good charlotte a fucking lesson about being a band. bad religions not about the clothing labels or making as much fucking money as possible.
punk rawkinest band around
Back in the time before MTV, there was a thing called "passion for music". Now, some of you may not know what that is and I can't blame you, for you have been victimized by MTV through bain washing. Anyways in this age of "musical passion", there existed a band called Bad Religion, who were very young at the time. They would form Epitaph Records, an independent record label that gave creative control to its bands not seen in like, forever. This record label would produce amazing bands such as NOFX, Bad Religion, Rancid, Dropkick Murphys, Offspring, and Pennywise. This record label was like the mecca, or holy grail, of aspiring punk rock bands of the 90s. These bands didn't need publicity, to be expoited by MTV. They proved that you can live and be in an indie band at the same time. Now, I don't know what went wrong with punk rock along the lines, but these new bands just suck.
To make a long story short, just get Bad Religion's newest cd, The Empire Strikes First, and you will never go Good Charlotte again.
The pinnacle of Punk rock - Have been Tagged "The Offspring with Brains". Set the standard for Punk Rock music, and the standard has yet to be beat by any other band ever.
Bad Religion fuse Harmonius vocals with thought provoking lyrics to create music of unreleting brilliance.
There's people out there that say i'm no good
'Cause i don't believe the things that i should
And when the final conflict comes i'll be so sorry i did wrong
And hope and pray that our lord God will think i'm good
-Fuck Armageddon...This Is Hell
One of the greatest punk rock bands of all time, and they're going bald at the same time. That's hard to do.
Bad Religion destroys crappy pop punk boy bands with their advanced rhetoric. LOL!
Punk Rock's most important band. One of a few punk bands to sign to a major label and maintain both credability and integrity. Most known for their biting yet truthful political and social commentary. My favorite band of all time, and definately the best concert I have ever been to.
Go listen to the records.
One of the best punk bands still around today. Definatly 1 of my favourite political punk bands, both musicaly and in terms of lyrical truth and thoughtfulness. Normaly each song has a powerful moral/politcal message.
E.g When all soliders lay their weapons down, or when all kings and all queens relinquish their crowns, or when the only true messiah rescues us from ourselves, then it's easy to imagine there will be sorrow no more.
Songs: Sorrow, 21 Century Digital Boy, I Want to conquer the world
