Editors’ Notes

The Dissent of Man is the fifteenth Bad Religion album. The Southern California punk rock band formed in 1979 and has reordered their lineup quite a few times over the years. At the onset, they were one band among many, but by the late ‘80s, it was becoming apparent that their melodic and sincere punk-rock styling was likely to outlast their competition. The Dissent of Man is everything that made the band’s reputation. “The Day That the Earth Stalled” and “Only Rain” are tight, powerful songs that fulfill the needs of any guitar-rock fan’s cravings. Even their ballads, “Won’t Somebody” and “Turn Your Back On Me,” have more speed and power than many group’s more upbeat works. The trick is in the harmonies and their insistence on sticking with what gave them their greatest success. Their natural abilities are not tied down to punk’s rigid code, but are aligned with what makes great pop music. The Deluxe Version is a real  treat. The live cuts “Best For You,” “How Much is Enough?,” and “Generator,” prove what a great live band they are as well.

Although it could have the old punks ripping that bad religion patch from thier denim jacket i would ask them to reconsider, although it is probably the bands most melodic album EVERY SINGLE SONG is pure brilliance, and every song has a memorable line that you could chant along to. Hands down the best punk rock album of 2010.

Out of all of the Southern Californian hardcore punk bands of the early '80s, Bad Religion stayed around the longest. For over a decade, they retained their underground credibility without turning out a series of indistinguishable records that all sound the same. Instead, the band refined their attack, adding inflections of psychedelia, heavy metal, and hard rock along the way, as well as a considerable dose of melody. Between their 1982 debut and their first major-label record, 1993's Recipe for...
