Five Bad Religion Albums To Hear Before That Damn Show 2013
Against the Grain -- 1990
Bad Religion continued its fury with 1990's Against the Grain, their final album before the group slowed down and experimented on 1992's Generator. Against the Grain finds Bad Religion taking on global issues and personal strife, including Gurewitz's struggles with addiction. "Anesthesia" chronicles an 11-year-old drug addition with comparisons to a woman. "Anna" isn't a lost lover, it's Gurewitz being "driven to distraction" as he is tempted by another hit.
