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.

Customer Reviews

I miss the old days

Damn... I gotta stop wishing for them to put out another great album like "Suffer" or "Against the Grain" cuz it just ain't gonna happen..

Great Album

Glad to see some bands never die. I've been listening to them for 15 years now and they just keep putting out great albums. Buy this!!

Great album!

For those who are expecting the same hardcore punk rock that came from Bad Religion earlier in their career, you will be slightly disappointed. For those who are looking for a great album in general, The Dissent of Man is certainly one. While not their trademark punk rock style, Bad Religion still maintains great musical talent with harmony and intellectually stimulating lyrics. This album is a prime example of how a band, as well as an individual mind, changes over time to focus on what matters in the times. Perhaps they've grown older, but it certainly doesn't make this album any less that those that came before.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

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...
