Sat Eye Candy: Bad Religion


For 30 years Bad Religion has been a standard bearer for intelligence and craftsmanship in punk rock. From the start, they made it cool to be smart AND pissed-off, but angry about the right things, things far beyond the naval gazing of so many suburban punks. They've actively pushed listeners to educate themselves and take action to better the world. And they also happen to have arguably the greatest singer in punk history, Greg Graffin, who turns 46 today. Riding high on one of the best albums of their career, The Dissent of Man (released September 24), Bad Religion is on a lengthy fall tour right now. Be sure to let Greg know you're glad he's stuck it out for three decades, using his VERY sharp mind to give a real boot to the jerk-waters that so richly deserve it. (Dennis Cook)

We kick off our lil' salute to BR with a standout from their 2007 masterpiece New Maps of Hell.

Speaking of hell, here's an early fan favorite that still gets folks riled up.

Not many bands could forge a classic that's only about a minute long. But most bands aren't Bad Religion.

Here's a couple from the new album taken from BR's recent Epicenter Festival performance.

And another killer off New Maps.

For many Bad Religion fans, 1990's Against The Grain will always be the yardstick by which they judge the band's best work. We conclude with two of that record's finest moments.
