I've recently got into this band...what are the best albums to get? Is their a greatest hits album? Live? Also do they tour anymore or not? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Their best album is their Selft titles. Their others are good too. They have a greatest hits album called Banned In DC: Bad Brains Greatest Riffs http://interpunk.com/item.cfm?Item=24421& And they haven't toured for a long time. Their singer is crazy now.

I'd say get Rock For Light or their self titled.

Anxious
10-25-2005, 04:00 PM
I always hear that they are getting back together, it doesnt seem like its gonna happen though. Get their self-titled.

Self-titled is classic.

Since Cheeser disappeared I'm going to fill in for him

"Bad brains suck because they were homphobic but never sang about gay people, just hated them in private away from their music"

Now that that's taken care of, they are a good band, get the s/t.

Yeah they are supposed to come out with a new album but I'm not sure if it'll happen anymore. Get either self-titled or Rock for Light.

One of the gere choices for my mp3 tagger program was negerpunk. It was so funny and yet so confusing.

Subvert_bassist
10-25-2005, 04:36 PM
Back in the eighties, HR ripped off MDC because the guy was gay. Amazing band, though. I mean, incredible; in my opinion, THE best hardcore to come out of America in the 80's.

Anxious

Black Flag was better.

Your one of them.

Subvert_bassist
10-25-2005, 04:42 PM
I just think he was a much better vocalist. However, I'm glad he left, because now we have Circle Jerks.

Besides, he's a nice guy. He bought me nachos. Anyone who feeds me wins me over.

Favourite band actually, listening to them right now. My favourite one of their albums is The Youth Are Getting Restless, they have this crazy energy live that they dont have on their other albums that i just love. rumour around town says they are coming out with a dvd and a c-d by the end of 2005, i hope it comes out, but H.R. is a mad man now. H.R. wants to only play reggae.

10-25-2005, 06:19 PM
Thanks for all the info guys I think I might get a live CD if it has video as well, and maybe their self-titled just to add to my collection. And I'll download the rest. Personal Favs:

How Low can a Punk Get
I against I
Sailin' On

I learned it a while ago on bass, I'll have to re-learn it again sometime and post it. You'd be amazed at how much of a song you can figure out by putting on headphones, then just sit there with your bass until it sounds right.

10-26-2005, 04:56 PM
Great band. Their self titled and I against I are both sweet albums. And the guitar in the song "she's calling you" is awesome.

In fact, i think i like I Against I the best.

Yes, what Subvert_bassist said. It all came out in the open when they played a show in Texas with the Big Boys or MDC (Im sure it was either or) and after the show he found out they had a gay member in the band and left a note saying some not so nice thinks.

Greatest Riffs is a good. I got it for £8. That's cheap in Britain.

10-29-2005, 05:42 AM
I know a few black punks, but considering UK is 3% Black (as in afro black, not asian black) thats a good healthy number. Punk tanscends race. Bad Brains are one of my favourite bands, because you cna never ever make me decide whether punk or reggae is best.

i dont think its just the rastafarian culture doesnt accept gays, its the fact that jamaican culture doesnt accept them. Most rastas are from jamaica, and in jamaican culture they dont really accept gays..if that makes sense

No, i don't think so. (reffering to the black supremacy thing). Even if they did they would've had to get over that since most of their fallowing were crackerz.

1) yes...and the song sucks aswell as coheed and cambria
2) i wouldnt say they were black supremcists but extremely close to them, like they believe everyone in the bible were black, and that the black rastafarian people are the chosen people (in the next exodus or whatever) but i dont think they think they are better than white people
