Current events revive Bad Religion's rage
Current events revive Bad Religion's rage

In 1980, the punk-rock band Bad Religion formed out of the desire of its members to express themselves, and particularly to express their anger.

Twenty-four years later, the desire endures.

On the evidence of the seminal Los Angeles band's latest album, "The Empire Strikes First," the anger, which had abated for a while, has returned.

"We walked into the studio angry about the way things are and saying, 'It has to change,' " said bassist and founding member Jay Bentley. "The world has been a complacent place for a while, but the time and place we're living in is enough to anger anyone who has open eyes and is willing to go beyond what Fox News is willing to present."

(Emphasis mine)

2. I'm actually surprised there isn't more punk rock around now.
I kind-of expected a resurgence since last year; there's a lot to complain about lately.
