Bad Religion: How Could Hell Be Any Worse? (40th Anniversary/colour) LP
This digitally re-mastered version of "How Could Hell Be Any Worse?" is taking place of the "80-85" album which is now out of print. It contains the exact same track listing as "80-85" and now has the packaging it should have had in the first place... With this album a fuse was lit, leading to an explosion that spawned a new religion: Bad Religion. This, their second record and first LP is nothing short of genius. Shattered-glass guitar riffs, fast, furious drums, and a 16 year old Greg Graffin's voice for the ages. The coalescence of lyrical intellect and savage music make for a sound seldom (if ever) heard before. The impact of this record still resonates to this day. Classic tracks like "Fuck Armageddon...This Is Hell," "American Dream," and "The Voice Of God Is Government" are as crucial and socially lucid as the day they were created in a southern California garage. When the greatest punk records of all-time are discussed, How Could Hell Be Any Worse is sure to be mentioned.
