Bad Religion

In his book Anarchy Evolution: Faith, Science, and Bad Religion in a World Without God, Greg Graffin says, "For me, the existence or nonexistence of God is a non-issue."

He's a naturalist, the lead singer of the punk rock band Bad Religion.

The notorious punk riot at the El Portal Theater in Los Angles on December 29, 1990 made his band infamous... but Graffin wasn't involved in it.

He still tours internationally with his band, whose new album The Dissent of Man celebrates 30 years of Bad Religion.

Graffin also has a PhD in zoology from Cornell. When he is not on stage, he teaches evolution at UCLA. -[CNN]

Author Greg Graffin and his band Bad Religion are in the midst of celebrating 30 years with 3 special shows at Irving Plaza in NYC. The third and final date is tonight (10/27). Off With Their Heads and Aggrolites are the openers at all three. More dates, including the now Devo-less Fun Fun Fun Fest, HERE.

The first NYC show was on 10/20, during CMJ. At that show they explored early material. The second show was last night (10/26). Pictures from the first show adorn this post. They continue, with both setlists, below...
