Editors’ Notes

Following the acrimonious departure of founding member Brett Gurewitz in 1994, a reconstituted Bad Religion returned in 1996 a changed band. Produced by Ric Ocasek (the former Cars frontman who'd recently found success by producing Weezer’s breakout album), The Gray Race replaced Gurewitz with former Minor Threat guitarist Brian Baker. With Gurewitz gone, singer Greg Graffin assumed the bulk of songwriting responsibilities, and the album is filled with his incisive and often-ambiguous critiques of society, which remain some of the most intriguing writing in punk rock. While “Them and Us,” “Punk Rock Song,” “Pity the Dead," and “Ten in 2010” are quintessential Bad Religion songs, some of the catchiest tunes are the ones Graffin cowrote with Baker, including “Spirit Shine,” “The Streets of America," and “The Gray Race.” At a time when Green Day’s bouncy pop-punk singles were tearing up the charts, Bad Religion submitted its own example of a likable punk hit with “A Walk,” an extraordinarily snappy song that manages to stay true to the band’s distinctive musical ideals.

Awesome Album

Like this review if you first heard Bad Religion from Crazy Taxi

How is this pop this is punk at its best????

Grey Race

One of there beat albums.

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...
