LA Times chats with Bad Religion

The Los Angeles Times did an interview with Brett, Greg Graffin and Jay earlier this week in which they talk about their 30yr anniversary (what else!).


Read the full article here.


Brett: "We were very young when we named the band Bad Religion and we started writing about what we considered to be serious topics. Maybe the reason we started in that direction was because we were serious kids or troubled kids, but whatever the reason, it has served us quite well. We can age gracefully with that. We weren't a zany band that found ourselves as adults trying to change what we write about."


Graffin: "We actually got lucky: We wrote some lasting songs that we can play today and that actually have some thought-provoking ideas. There are some songs from those early records that we might still play, but it's hard to stand behind the lyrics."

perhaps it is time for all of us to put aside the nra bravado or the hand-wringing political expectations for someone else to fix it

and come to terms with the FACT that there will always be misguided individuals who will find ways to cause harm to innocent people globally

everyone's tired of the "if John Wayne were there with a gun..." rhetoric, so it's time the U.S. started thinking logically, realistically

so you're not going to just "get rid of them"... nor are you going to "get rid of" mentally unstable people who will continue to kill others
