Bad Religion celebrates 40 years with four-part streaming series

First episode of Decades premiers Dec 12th

Bad Religion celebrates their forty years of making music with Decades, a four-episode online streaming event captured live at The Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, California. The band felt it important to commemorate the conclusion of 2020 as a strange moment in history when they reached that 40-year milestone. The celebratory episodes will include live performance footage, exclusive interviews, and a peek at their rehearsals leading up to the taping of Decades.

“I can speak for the whole band when I say that we were so disappointed to not be able to tour this year. It is our fans and all those concerts we play each year that provide the life-force of Bad Religion,” says vocalist Greg Graffin. “Decades allows new fans as well as those who were there at the beginning to get a rich overview of our entire career and witness the changes in songwriting and performance styles at each stage of our evolution.“

Bad Religion will participate in an accompanying live chat during the premiere of each episode. Show specific merchandise will be available for sale on the Decades NoCap Shows page.

The ’90’s – Bad Religion performs songs from Against The Grain, Generator, Recipe For Hate, Stranger Than Fiction, The Gray Race, and No Substance.
