personally I love Bad Religion, but I think that alot of guys in this forum don't. I don't know, they always seemed like a good bad with intelligent lyrics that really believed in the music that they played.

There new stuff is horrible. Old stuff is meh. Kind of, like not great, not awesome, but not bad. I'll listen to them every once in a while but I don't spend too much time listening to them.

I love them. Even thought their music can be monotaneous, the lyrics are stellar. My favorite release is without a doubt into the unknown, even though they tried to get rid of it.

i think the lyrics themselves are a testament to the fact that they aren't monotonous. although they do attack similar subjects on many of their albums.

and in terms of punk guitar, their guitarists are practically virtuosic (not in the pick sweep/modal kind of way).

and BR's had their string of drummers over the years. they basically follow the same old joke of the expendable drummer. though Brooks Wackerman seems to have a lot of promise, skill, and lasting power with this band. for fucks sake the guys in the band are probably his dad's age ,

that's too weird...but the responses on that site are classic.

and yeah, it's pretty amazing that he's Chad Wackerman's brother. guess it should be no surprise that he hits the skins so well.

there was a time when i really enjoyed this band. evry new record was a little different in sound and style than the previous one, yet still sounded like a "Bad Religion" record.--if that makes any sense. after Suffer came out out, which i thought was great by the way, all of their other records sounded exactly like Suffer. i just got plain out bored with it, as the different styles is what kept me coming back to BR in the first place. (well, that and the increible lyrics).

Yeah, the photos look a bit dodgy to me, I'd say they were fake.
They're a great band. One of the bands I've been listening to the longest in my life. 'The gray race' has to be my favourite.
I've always considered them more of a pop-punk band in sound though.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.
