OK - they may be a bit "samey" BUT without Bad Religion would we have such a strong Punk movement in America right now? Undoubtedly this band have not received the commercial recognition that they deserve but they keep plugging away and another album is due soon. Ex Guitarist and Songwriter Brett Gueriwitz formed and now runs "Epitaph" one of the strongest "independent" record labels in America, indeed, Epitaph were responsible for releasing the record breaking Offspring album "Smash" .
Have a listen to
1) American Jesus
2) The Handshake
3) 21st Century Digital Boy
4) Atomic Garden
5) Roman Candle
And album? - well give Stranger Than Fiction a go - but its difficult to pick out one album that's particularly better than another.
