A Tribute to Bad Religion: Germs of Perfection


MySpace is featuring an exclusive Bad Religion tribute ‘Germs of Perfection.’ Check out the first track, Tegan and Sara’s take on “Suffer”, click here.


For bands everywhere, it’s a right of passage. They can all, to some degree, remember the first time they heard the barreling guitars on “Generator.” Or recall the moment when they first stopped and really listened to Greg Graffin’s lyrics. (Which, these days, is probably followed by typing words like “denouement” into Dictionary.com.)


For many, Bad Religion has been a hugely influential band who, beyond almost anyone’s expectations, is celebrating their 30th anniversary this year with the release of their new album, The Dissent Of Man. But that’s not all. The band has also helped us, along with our good freinds at SPIN, in shaping Germs Of Perfection, an exclusive tribute album featuring artists like Tegan And Sara, Ted Leo, Fake Problems—along with nearly a dozen more—covering some of the band’s most celebrated tracks.


Over the next three weeks, we will be posting one song a day (barring weekends) to stream. Then, on October 19th, we will offer up the entire album as a free download on both MySpace Music’s homepage and through SPIN.com. In the meanwhile, keep checking back here for a new song daily. Some of the results may surprise you.
