A blog to get Spinal Tap into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (and whatever else I want it to be about)

Bad Religion rules

I saw Bad Religion at the KROQ Weenie Roast yesterday.  Bad Religion played and they were awesome.  I didn’t put them in the playoffs this year, mainly because they slipped my mind, but also because I’m not sure how popular they are outside of Southern California.  Here, they are punk rock legends.  Real warriors and elder statesmen who continue to tour and put out great albums.  They just did a 30th anniversary tour, for cryin’ out loud!  I think their new stuff is pretty strong, and the crowd loved them at the concert (although they were not the headliners).

But I don’t know how well-known they are in the rest of the country (or world, for all my international readers).  I’d love to hear if you know about Bad Religion and how popular they are in your neck of the woods.  So post a comment, I’d love to hear from y’all.

PS, I have more videos from the concert on my youtube page!  After Bad Religion were The Strokes, Rise Against and surprise guest; The Foo Fighters!  Linkin Park was the final band, but we left before them to beat traffic and because they’re lame (But I met some really nice people from their great charity: Music for Relief, who along with Heal the Bay (I volunteered with them and that’s how I got to go) and the Surfrider Foundation were the beneficiaries of the concert.)

  1. Bad Religion is not Michael-Jackson-Madonna-polpular in Japan. But they are Ramones-Sex-Pistols-popular among the punk rockers.
