Bad Religion Tickets - Bad Religion Tour Dates

Bad Religion Schedule

Citing major influences as The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Ramones and The Germs, hardcore band Bad Religion has been a musical staple for over three decades. Today, many punk bands credit Bad Religion as an inspiration for them, including outfits like The Bouncing Souls, Death by Stereo, Lagwagon, AFI, All, Authority Zero, The Offspring, NOFX, Pennywise and more.

It is also a well-known fact that out of all of the Southern California hardcore punk bands that emerged in the '80s, Bad Religion has stuck around the longest. They have preserved their underground standing without churning out a string of homogeneous records. Instead, the band worked hard to refine their music, adding doses of heavy metal, hard rock and psychedelia to the mix.

To find out what Bad Religion is up to these days, all you need to do is stick right here on StubHub. StubHub offers the most up-to-date concert listings, venue details and more. Check it out today!


Bad Religion Background

Founded in 1979 in the suburbs of L.A., Bad Religion original lineup consisted of Jay Bentley, Jay Ziskrout, Greg Graffin and Brett Gurewitz. According to Bentley (bassist), Bad Religion began somewhere around late 1979 "but no one can remember exactly. Greg Graffin wanted the year 2000 to be Bad Religion's 20th birthday." They made their debut public appearance at a warehouse in Fullerton, California, supporting Social Distortion. Their first official concert was hosted at Joey Kills Bar in Burbank, California, in November 11, 1980. A year later, the band put out their inaugural self-titled album, which was released under the newly established label, Epitaph Records. This label continues to be owned and managed by Gurewitz today.

In 1982, the band started working on How Could Hell Be Any Worse? During the recording of this debut full-length album, Ziskrout (drummer) left the band. Peter Finestone took his place. The band distributed the album and sold about 12,000 copies. Into the Unknown arrived in 1983, which was a keyboard-fueled album with a little bit slower pace. It turned out that nearly all of the albums the band had made were sold out of the warehouse they were kept in without the band knowing about it. This incident compounded with conflict in the members' personal lives led to the band taking a temporary hiatus after the album was issued. Soon after, Graffin mended Bad Religion enlisting Gret Hetson (Circle Jerks guitarist) to replace Gurewitz, who had checked into drug rehab. Bad Religion transitioned into producing a mellower rock version of their original sound with the EP, Back to the Known. Bad Religion slowly returned to its old self in 1986. Bentley was asked to come back with the assurance that the set list was comprised mainly of singles from How Could Hell Be Any Worse?; he signed on to participate in one show. But, he ended up remaining in the lineup because he enjoyed it so much. After successfully completing rehab, Gurewitz was persuaded to come back. Finestone and Hetson were also on board, cementing Bad Religion's return to the music scene. The reunion resulted in Suffer (1988), the band's third album.

They released No Control in the fall of 1989, which sold over 60,000 copies. By the time this album was issued, the band had claimed its spot as one of the most critically acclaimed hardcore punk bands of the era, even though they didn't make a dent on the mainstream.

Against the Grain (1990) was their first album to top sales at 100,000. In the spring of 1991, Finestone exited Band Religion to dedicate his time to his other band, The Fishermen. Bad Religion soldiered on and dropped their sixth studio album, Generator, in March 1992. To complement the album, Bad Religion worked on their first music video for their song, "Atomic Garden." Next Bad Religion put out a compilation album, 80-85 in 1991. In 1993, Bad Religion finally got the break they worked so hard for. Their seventh full-length studio album, Recipe for Hate, landed at No. 14 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart, with "Struck a Nerve" and "American Jesus" receiving major radio airplay at the time. That same year, the band cut the tune, "Leaders and Followers" for the Clerks movie soundtrack. Stranger Than Fiction followed Recipe for Hate in 1994. It became their most successful album, yielding hits like "Infected." The album was the first to crack the Billboard 200 and also claimed gold certification on March 4, 1998.

Bad Religion released two more albums in the remainder of the '90s, which included The Gray Race (1996) and No Substance (1998). They stepped back into the studio throughout the 2000s and continue to do so today.

Bad Religion Trivia

Did you know that fans refer to Bad Religion's logo as the "Crossbuster"? Yep, it's true. The logo includes a black cross with a red prohibition sign over it. Brett Gurewitz (guitarist) crafted the logo. He drew it on some paper and shared it with the rest of the band. Brian Baker, who joined the band's lineup later in their career, said the following: "The name Bad Religion and the crossbuster logo came to pass in the minds of 15-year-olds who were trying to find the most offensive name and image they could possibly find for the punk band they were starting in their garage... These are not people who thought that 21 years later they would be on the telephone doing interviews."
