In the videos Brett talks about the beginning of Bad Religion, The Dissent Of Man, but also gives a tour in and around the Epitaph office in LA. In summary (and specifically related to Bad Religion):



When writing 'The Devil In Stitches', Brett was trying to write a Bruce Springsteen song. "(it's) a place where I haven't gone as a song writer".
The song 'Cyanide' is apparently also a Brett song. It has some "Stones-y-elements and some Tom Petty elements". It features a guest appearance (a solo) by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' guitarist Mike Campbell. When writing it, he was trying to write a Kinks song. He also describes it as "a pretty straight forward, country-tinged alternative rock song".
For Brett, The Dissent Of Man is a very personal and emotional album. There's a lot of spirituality and emotion in his writing. One song on that album is almost like a "humanist hymn".















 



Extra tidbit - This is not the first time Mike Campbell has done a guest appearance on a Bad Religion record. Mike also did a guitar solo on 'Los Angeles is Burning'.
