First off: While "How Can Hell" has never been out of print (see "80-85") it is great to have it back with its original title & cover. This is one of my favorite US hardcore LPs. NOW- why can't we see a CD re release of their second LP "Into the Unknown"? Sure, at the time, fans hated it and dismissed it as a "sell out" (which was typical of punk bands in the early 80s- look at the Red Rockers). And, yes, this heavy new wave arena rock (for want of a better discription) sounds nothing like the rest of the BA catalog before or since. But, that-was-then-this-is-now: why not let the current generation of BA fans hear it and make up their own minds. As an owner of one of the original vinyl pressings I can say "Unknown" has gotten better with age and features some of their best stuff: "Billy Gnosis", "million days", "wild goose" and "it's only over when you give up".
As of this writing there's a guy on Ebay letting his "Unknown" LP go for $165 starting bid! I've seen it on Ebay for as much as $300! (Not to mention several bootleg CD-Rs of this album.) Not to deminish the greatness of "Suffer" or "Generator" but Gregg & Co. should be convinced to let their current audience decide- at least with a "limmited edition" CD of "Into the Unknown". (At the time of "Unknown's" 1983 release BA contributed two great "unplugged" tracks to the "Sound of Hollywood" comp: "waiting for the fire" and "everyday". Those would make great bonus tracks.) 21 years later it's time for Bad Religion to STOP apologising for this record- not to mention, STOP the self-censorship!

This is an unbelievable punk album. If you own 80-85 than you have probably heard these songs, but that shouldn't stop you from picking this up. Every song is a perfect example of amazing punk rock music. Doing Time, Drastic Actions, and Voice of God is Government are three of my favorite punk songs of all time. great energy and great lyrics. great everything

This is Bad Religion's first ep, How Can Hell Be Any Worse, that was originally featured on their 80-85 Anthology, but restored with original artwork and a new killer sound. Definately for hardcore fans and ordinary fans of the band

it's exactly the same as 80-85 only it has the cool cover art and it sounds better. Pick this up instead.

I've owned the original Bad Religion six song EP since the early 80s. To this day, it's still my favorite Bad Religion record. Back when I was discovering the joy of replacing my old worn out vinyl records with CD re-releases, BR released "80-85" which contained How Could Hell Be Any Worse, the first EP, the Back To The Known EP, and some compilation tracks. The highlight for me was of course the tracks from the first EP. Or at least, it should have been. When I listened to that CD for the first time, I was sorely disappointed to discover that they didn't use the exact same tracks that were used on the original EP. It sounded like they may have started out as the same tracks I remembered, but had then been edited and altered with alternate takes, overdubs, a remix, and other such shenanigans. I found out about this new version of the 80-85 CD, and that it was remastered. I hoped that now finally I'd have the original versions of the 1st EP tracks on CD, but to no avail... this is the same stuff from the 80-85 disk. Damn it. Why not use the originals?
I'm taking off another star because it still annoys me that BR continues to stubbornly deny the existence of their 2nd album, Into the Unknown. For those of you who aren't aware, in 1983 BR released an LP with cover art that would have made Journey and Boston proud, and songs to match. Loud keyboards, acoustic guitars, 10+ minute songs, a conceptual quadrilogy... Somehow BR had become 70s arena rock. I really dug it. Not only were some of the songs great (especially the first three: It's Only Over When..., Chasing the Wild Goose, and Billy Gnosis) but I thought it was a response to the scene itself. In 1983 the punk scene had become unbearably conformist. If you didn't sound and dress according to accepted hardcore norms, you were rejected.
