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 »

I've got nothing to say
I've got nothing to do
All om my neurons are
Functioning smoothly

Yet still I'm a cyborg just like you
I am one big myoma that thinks
My planet supports only me
I've got this one big problem: will I live forever?

I've got just a short time you see
Modern man, evolutionary betrayer
Modern man, ecosystem destroyer
Modern man, destroy yourself in shame
Modern man, pathetic example of earth's organic heritage
When I look back and think
When I ponder and ask "why?"

I see my ancestors spend with careless abandon
Assuming eternal supply, modern man
Just a sample of carbon-based wastage
Just a fucking tragic epic of you and I
