Bad Religion

Bad Religion is a punk band from Los Angeles, California, known for poignant, erudite lyrics, and biting social commentary. The band was formed in 1980 by high school students Greg Graffin (vocals), Jay Bentley (bass guitar), Jay Ziskrout (drums), and Brett Gurewitz (guitar). In 1981, they released their eponymous debut EP on their own newly-formed label, Epitaph , managed and owned by Gurewitz. 1982 saw the release of their first full-length album, How Could Hell Be Any Worse?  which gained them a sizable following. During the recording, Ziskrout left the band and was replaced by Peter Finestone.

What followed their debut, was an amazing thirty year career in music spanning 15 studio albums and countless live shows. While their line-up has seen a few changes over the years, what has not changed is their authentic and credible approach to punk rock, which can be traced through the Greg Graffin’s continually challenging lyrics. In 2010, the band released 15th studio album ‘The Dissent of Man’, celebrating the beginning of their third decade as a band. An incredible feat, and we’re thrilled to have them on the roster for online press.
