Live at the Palladium
Since 1980, Bad Religion have been stunning the music world by mixing melody, thought, attitude, speed and ability. Live at the Palladium, filmed over two soldout nights at Hollywood's legendary Palladium last fall, serves as a career retrospective for one of the most beloved and respected punk rock bands in the history of a the genre.
Bad Religion has always seen music as a force for social change. On their latest CD entitled The Empire Strikes First, punk's most important active band takes its weightiest stance yet on the dual themes of religion and politics. Clearly condemning the Bush administration's doctrine of preemptive war, and questioning religion's increasing and ever-frightening role in American politics, Bad Religion's message proves to be more salient today than ever before and it's conveyed with the fierce musical attack that has helped define the band, and the genre, for two decades.
