For a band to not only be popular, but also relevant and unbelievably good, for that long is incredible. Few bands can say they have stayed so true for so long, but Bad Religion is at the top of that small heap.
For thirty years, Bad Religion has released extraordinary records (with maybe one confusing exception) and shaped underground music (as well as music at large) with quiet leadership. They closed out their Vox Pupuli tour with Against Me! and Dave Hause with a hometown show at the Hollywood Palladium.
