Punking Up Religious Favorites
Bad Religion has been role models for numerous second generation rock/punk bands including the Offspring and Green Day. The band has cultivated over 35 years worth of meaningful lyrics and fast-paced melodic punk. At the start of their career, the talented ensemble was not backed by any major label but due to passion for music and by creating incredible compositions they earned themselves a devoted and steadily growing fan following.
Originally based in Southern California, Bad Religion now has its members spread out across the country. The separation hasn’t affected their creative flow and they continue to record music, produce for underground bands, run their own merchandising line and also fund grants for college students.
Featuring a unique lineup, the frontman Greg Graffin also teaches part-time at UCLA and is a professor of life science. He also co-authored a book along with Preston Jones titled, “Is Belief In God Good, Bad, or Irrelevant?: A Professor and a Punk Rocker Discuss Science, Religion, Naturalism & Christianity”. The lead guitarist and founding songwriter, Brett Gurewitz is the owner and operator of the independent record label Epitaph and besides producing Bad Religion’s music has also helped start the careers of Rancid, The Pietasters, Pennywise, NOFX and No Use for a Name.
A Music Legacy
With 16 studio albums released so far, Bad Religion is to punk what Iron Maiden is to heavy metal. Treating the listeners to over three decades long discographies, the band has been able to maintain unparalleled quality within their genre. Like true musicians passionate about the art, they have easily adopted the changing trends and with time have added modernity into their compositions. Storytellers at heart, Bad Religion have used their lyrics and music to paint dramatic visuals that fans have been able to relate to.
Starting from 1982’s “How Could Hell Be Any Worse?”, Bad Religion has singlehandedly revived the punk movement in US. They have updated their classic sound with contemporary recording techniques but have retained the energy and fury of previous outings. In 1988, the band released their landmark album “Suffer” that went on to become the Album of the Year and it encouraged the ensemble to embark on first national tour. After releasing their 4th record “No Control” the very next year, Bad Religion expanded their horizons and crossed continent for a European trek.
In 1992 the band underwent their first major lineup change but the remaining members didn’t let it affect their hallmark energy. In fact they went on to produce more hits like “Recipe for Hate” and “The Gray Race” that hailed them to something far bigger. The band had expanded their sonic palette quite significantly and composed even better music that also hiked their album sales.
In 2013 Bad Religion released their latest record “True North” and it featured conceptual lyrics, slaughtered drumming, bristling guitars and harmonized backing vocals. With hit like Robin Hood in Reverse and Past is Dead, it peaked at 19th spot on the Billboard charts. The band also has a successful Christmas album in its repertoire.
