Bad Religion

Bad Religion is a punk rock band that formed in Los Angeles in 1979. The band makes extensive use of soaring 3-part vocal harmonies (which they refer to in their album liner notes as the "oozin' aahs"), guitar solos and intellectual lyrics that often contain political or religious commentary. Their lyrics often relate to matters of social responsibility. The band's lineup has changed several times over its lifespan, with lead vocalist Greg Graffin being the only consistent member; the current lineup, however, features three out of four of the band's original members (Graffin, Brett Gurewitz and Jay Bentley). more »

Privilege from birth, abhorrence of work, obsessed with sovereignty
Aristocrats claim an exemption from the standards of democracy

A secret antipathy to justice and equality
And a tightly constrained definition of who is free

Old regime, smoke of history
Liberty still wafting in the breeze
The new aristocracy just smells like the old regime (whoa)

They think that they can alter and sway which version of freedom reigns
If everything is subjective then what good is truth anyway?

A plutocratic strategy or technocrat conspiracy
Or a vision of utopia that only the besotten can see?

Old regime, smoke of history
Liberty still wafting in the breeze
The new aristocracy just smells like the old regime

An unabated tendency to tyranny is still in place
And the ancient nobility's complexion differs just in name

Old regime, smoke of history
Liberty still wafting in the breeze
A new season dawns with ominous prophecy
Yeah, the new aristocracy just smells like the old regime
