Bad Religion Spends 40 Years With Us
December 8, 2020 by Rachael Contreras
2020 has been a unique year. No live concerts has fueled a massive downfall in the happiness to music fans in all genres. One way bands are helping us cope with this missing piece to our life’s puzzle is by holding concert livestreams where we can enjoy watching our favorite bands live from the safety of our living room.
Bad Religion is doing their part to save our sanity. The legendary punk rockers are bringing us a four-episode extravaganza, continuing in their 40 years of bringing pure joy to our ears.
“Decades” is a four-stream special of previously recorded material from The Roxy in Hollywood and was created just for this event. Each stream will highlight a decade of their evangelism in consecutive order.
“Decades” episodes will include “live performance footage filmed at The Roxy in October of 2020, exclusive interviews, and fly-on-the-wall peeks at their rehearsals leading up to the taping of ‘Decades.’”
The four episodes are:
‘80s (December 12th): Bad Religion performs songs from “How Could Hell Be Any Worse?,” “Suffer,” and “No Control.” They discuss what it was like being young punks in a world of PAC-MAN, Reaganomics, and televangelism.
‘90s (December 19th): Bad Religion performs songs from “Against the Grain,” “Generator,” “Recipe for Hate,” “Stranger than Fiction,” “The Gray Race,” and “No Substance.” This decade cemented their position as one of the most influential and prolific bands of our time, but it didn’t come easy or without cost; the band discusses the growing pains and lessons learned.
‘00s (December 26th): Bad Religion performs songs from “The New America,” “The Process of Belief,” “The Empire Strikes First,” and “New Maps of Hell.” Returning home and charging forward into a new millennium, Bad Religion continued to awe with their prowess releasing some of their most beloved material to date.
‘10s (January 2nd): Bad Religion performs songs from “The Dissent of Man,” “True North,” and “Age of Unreason.” The COVID-19 pandemic cut short their plans to tour in support of “The Age Of Unreason” and are now performing material never seen live before. The band discusses the gratitude they live with every day looking back on 40 years of being Bad Religion and the legacy they are still actively creating.
