dimebag put as much emotion in to 9/10 of his solos as hitler showed when putting jews in syanide showers.

i mean i like the sameness in this case, American Jesus, Better Off Dead, Let Them Eat War, all sound about the same but they're just kickass songs anyway

I loved this band when I was twelve. A lot of their music does sound the same, but they enhanced my vocabulary quite a bit.

I recently had a dream that my dad died and my mum spent the life insurance payout on a new Indian dad, who told me to convert to Judaism, even though people usually change religion in September.

a very smart band
they write good stuff
i stumbled upon their whole collection recently and i say its repetitive but real good
Dick+strings= owww

I used Germs of Perfection to get English extra credit where we had to write down all the words we could think of ending in "-ate." I still don't know what most of them mean but whatever.

And the sidewalk bagatelles, it's like a dream

I have to agree they can get a bit repatative, but How could hell be any worse? is one of my favourite albums. I've got no control, how could hell.. and the grey race (on grey vinyl ) what other albums are worth checking out with out? preferably ones which aren't too repetative.

1998/99 I loved 'em, listened to them on and off since but the songs haven't had quite the same effect.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

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.

I though they were pretty good live.
Until I started being smushed into the two shirtless sweaty guys in front of me. Which, although not the band's fault, was not strictly fun.

Are you kidding? They're great live. When I saw them they were amazing.

I feel the same way pretty much...alot of the songs that were on the last album, were okay...but nothing really special. and every time they come to town something always comes up. I was told they weren't too good live though by a few friends, others have said that they're really good live.
#17
I was at Warped tour 2 years ago when they played. Instead of going to see them play, I hit on chicks. I spent an hour trying to convince this girl to let me **** her in the porta-potty.

#18
They have really bad moments, really boring stuff, but also rather good tunes, for example their live album, tested is good, but some of the mid 90s albums are shit, but when I saw them live it was awesome. Greg Graffin: "We´ve played two gigs on this tour. LA, Tokyo and now we´re here in.......Meerhout, great."
#19
I was really into them about a year and a half back, now I only listen sometimes. I love the lyrics, and some of their stuff is really catchy. They do repeat themselves, but I guess its hard not to if you play for as long as they have, but barely changing your style at all.
If music was the food of love I'd be a fat romantic slob.

Alright, so Bad Religion played at this reallllly reallly chachi bar (it's called Flames Central, named after the Calgary Flames) and my friend went because he loves bad religion. He lives at the punkhouse here and used to sing for the band IN VACUO and is a super punx dude.

He got on stage, grabbed the mic and sang along. The bouncers came up and started beating him up but he kept singing. Then they took him outside and beat him up some more.

And guess what... there's a video of it!

You'll notice the crowd goes wild when Sonki sings. That is because he rules.

Oh man.

The crowd sang along with him! Greg seemed to like it.

I especially like how some dude tried to get onstage later and got immediately shoved off by the bouncer.

I never understood why so many bouncers are like that. If the band doesn't care why do they?

That's pretty lame on the bouncer's part...If I were them I would have let the band deal with him as they saw fit.

It's funny at 1:45 Greg looks like he's thinking: "Well...sh*t happens."

I was listening to the empire strikes first.

I love all the songs, but I don't like the production.

Graffin's voice is almost likeable, but it is a little bit too west coast for my liking.
#30
Good songs on the empire strikes first are

Los Angeles is Burning
God´s Love
Let them eat War
The Empire Strikes First
Atheist Peace
Social Suicide
Sinister Rouge

the others are partly ok, but I still think they have more "Filler" songs than London Calling. Greg Graffin´s voice is ok, though in this case I agree that it´s west coast.
Sometimes it´s a bit sad that they don´t play their songs easier though with more energy and pathos.
