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.

LA based punk band that you either love madly, hate passionately or find exceedingly dull. Their songwriting team consists of a UCLA life science professor, and the president of Epitaph Records who tend to use a heightened and advanced vocabulary when coming up with their poignant socio-political and pseudo-philosophical lyrics. Their lineup also consists of some of punk rock's finest musicians including Greg Hetson of Circle Jerks fame, Brian Baker of Minor Threat/Dag Nasty fame and Brooks Wackerman from Suicidal Tendencies. They have been around for approximately twenty eight years.
"Look around and ask someone if you are alive,
you're a sidewalk cipher speaking prionic jive.
So, I give you me,
I give you nothing!"

-- "Give You Nothing"

Me: 'prionic jive?' Must be a Bad Religion song...

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.

An old style very political punk rock band. Bad Religion is one of the greatest bands EVER!
Bad Religion songs: "Atomic Garden", "Automatic Man", "Anesthisia", "You Are The Government", "Generator".

The best political punk out there. After 25 years, the balding band is still holding their own on the Warped Tour, and Brett Gurewitz is sexier than ever.
Bad Religion is smarter than you.

One of the most boring bands of all time. This band has a million songs and they all sound the same: sing along lyrics with scientific terms thrown in to show that the singer is one smart mofo.
I got dragged to a Bad Religion show in Austin in 1992 and hated every second of it.
