As a sophomore in high school, some girl in my biology class introduced BR to me. She said, "you might not like their music, but their lyrics are amazing." So, I bought my first album - "Stranger Than Fiction." It's been 6 years and I now own ALL BR albums, including imports and a solo release ("American Lesion") composed by BR lead singer, Greg Graffin. BR is a disease. Friend by friend, I got everyone I know to listen to them.
Greg Graffin has played solo at my university. He played some song requests, despite that he was unprepared to play them. He's got a degree from Cornell University (Vertebrae Paleontology) and he's taught at UCLA. Smart dude.
I've been to 2 BR concerts, and I've seen them play at the "Warped Tour." Their live shows are awesome. All their fans know the lyrics each song.
If you like high energy, raw music ("your indecision is your....WHOOAAAH!...BAD RELIGION!), you NEED 80-85.
How Can Hell Be Any Worse: Released in 1980, this album is one of the most influental and individual albums of it's time. Conbining for the first intellegent lyrics with melodic hardcore punk rock. Easy to compare to their later work, this album shows their ability to show their ideas of a better world in a more honest and civilized way then most of the music of their time.
The album also includes the classic track "F**k Armagedeon, This Is Hell" which has been voted one of the greatest punk songs by many BR and punk fans.
Classic (5 Stars)
Bad Religion EP: The classic debut album from the band. Includes the original version of their classic signiture song, and the original recordings of "Slaves" and "Drastic Actions". It's the most wanted and bootlegged Bad Religion album of all time.
Classic (5 Stars)
Back to the Known: A follow-up to their experimental and unsuccessful 1982 failure "Into the Unknown", this album comes back with the original Bad Religion style, but still not the same. The songs are at times longer, and deal with a more deeper intensity.
The album includes the classic sssslllloooowwww version of their signiture track "Bad Religion", and also the original recording of the classic "Along the Way" which has been voted the best BR song, ever. The album also includes the tracks "New Leaf" and "Yesterday" that show a matured Bad Religion.
Classic (5 Stars)
The last three tracks are cuts from the compilation "Public Service".

This is the real stuff. I am a big BR fan and I wanted a look at their old stuff. And it's even better. The best song is Voice of God is Government, but I like them all.Published on Sept. 12 2003

This is the best album by a band that ruined punk rock, lively, fast, fun, and still gets a good message across. Read morePublished on May 8 2002 by Brad Bennett
It is like a time capsule. Almost all of Bad Religions early music is represented here (except for the much maligned Into the Unknown). Read morePublished on Jan. 15 2002 by nousefouraname
