Lol i love the "Lagwagon defended gay people before it was cool to."

Personally I don't hate gay people, but I agree that too many celebrities and musicians are overly supportive of homosexuality. Not to sound like a conservative, but its getting to a point where gays are demanding a lot more than 10 years ago.



Back onto music, this is a great album. Man with a Mission is really good. I realized a controversial theory when I literally linked Avenged Sevenfold to this album. I think they stole the formula for this album.



1. Overly catchy choruses

2. Over the top soloing

3. Extreme emphasis on melody



This album is like a stripped down version (but still way better) of Avenged Sevenfold's douchey pop metal. Please don't block me for this

Yeah...now they want us to make them feel like they're equal to everyone else. This can't happen...we have to keep them down! We let the women and those fucking Negros out from under our thumb; we need to keep the fags down there, else we'll have no one else to feel superior to!!!



(Okay...perhaps that was unnecessary, but that sentence didn't make much sense to me. Also, maybe it sounded a bit too familiar).



As for this album..."Skyscraper" is among the most underrated BR songs ever, along with "Broken" and "Boot Stamping...." It's sooo damn good!

You're agreeing to something that I never said. 10 or 20 years ago when gay people could have actually used the outside support there was virtually none to be found. Sebastian Bach famously wore a shirt that said "AIDS kills fags dead" and no one blinked an eye, and Lagwagon stepped into a testostrone-fueled genre and defended them anyway (even if just through a single song). These days when things seem to be infinitely better, it's now the cool thing to do, and is used as bragging rights by idiots trying to prove who is more open minded and socially conscious. As far as what they are or aren't demanding, I'm only aware of the gay marriage issue, and I don't see what the problem is.

I think you're reaching for something that's not really there. It would be like me linking Pearl Harbor (with Ben Affelck) with Schindler's List because they have the same formula:



1) The time frame is World War 2.



2) Focuses on the human element over the war itself.



3) One man saves many others.

Totally agreed.

Absolutely. Even after all this time, it still remains in the top 5 out of the entire Bad Religion song catalogue (IMO, at least).

this is my favorite BR album. Kerosene, Portrait Of Authority, Man With A Mission, Don't On Pray Me, and Skyscraper are unforgettable.

That's a shame because they keep releasing valid material.

Here's some BR love, Explode:



I recently went to their show (with Off!), and as much as I knew I would enjoy it, it was so much better than I could have ever expected.



First off, their opener was "Spirit Shine," a completely underrated track from 'The Gray Race'. The setlist hit deep, with songs like "The Handshake," "Kyoto Now!," "52 Seconds" and "Modern Day Catastrophists" peppered in among the hits (or more like poured in amongst). When my friend asked me before the show what song I wanted to hear most, I told him "Modern Man," because I didn't dare hope they would play "Skyscraper"...and they played both of them. And one of the best songs of the night was "The New America," where me and my friends joined shoulders and "WHOA-OH!"'d our fucking throats out. They played over 30 songs in total.



I know that Bad Religion isn't long for this world, but that concert felt like closure to my decade long devotion to them. It was like the final statement they made to me as a fan, and it was damn-near perfect.

Very Nice Masochist!



Every time I've ever seen BR they have been nothing short of amazing. I lose my voice every single time. I really hope I get at least one more chance to see them live.
