Against The Grain
Bad Religion formed in 1980 in Los Angeles, Calif. They started self-producing and worked with Epitaph Records in the early years where they acquired a large underground following. In these early years, Bad Religion released the song "21st Century (Digital Boy)" which remains one of their most popular songs to this day. By the late '80s, Bad Religion was gaining the traction to have critics reviewing their music. 1988's Suffer, 1989's No Control and 1990's Against The Grain all received a decent amount of positive attention. In 1993, Bad Religion got signed to Atlantic Records where they started seeing mainstream success with their seventh album Recipe For Hate. It produced the single "American Jesus," which is one of their most popular songs to date, often being performed during the encore of headlining performances. Stranger Than Fiction was the band's first album to enter the Billboard 200 and it peaked at No. 84. "Stranger Than Fiction" and "Infected" are both notable singles from the album. Their next few releases didn't garner as much success with the minor radio single "A Walk" being their next biggest accomplishment during their time with Atlantic. Returning to Epitaph in 2001, fans highly regarded Bad Religion's next couple of albums. The Process of Belief and The Empire Strikes First marked a return to the band's more upbeat style that fans preferred. The next to receive commercial success was 2007's New Maps Of Hell which peaked at No. 35. It produced singles such as "Honest Goodbye" and "New Dark Ages." 2010's The Dissent Of Man had similar success peaking at the same position on the Billboard 200. In 2013, Bad Religion released their first top 20 album. True North rose to No. 18. 2019 brought Bad Religion's most recent album, Age Of Unreason, which came after five years without the band releasing new music. Featuring the single "Chaos From Within," the album debuted at No. 73.
