Germs of Perfection: a tribute to Bad Religion

MySpace and SPIN will release an exclusive Bad Religion tribute album next month. Here is what MySpace has written in their blog:


"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 friends 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."

Also, a couple of weeks ago Brett retweeted a tweet from the Cobra Skulls, who are apparently also doing a cover for the tribute album:
