Bad Religion Talk Christmas/Christianity With Rolling Stone

Posted by - 12:06 PM on 12/27/13
Bad Religion recently sat down with Rolling Stone to talk about their Christmas release.
Well, thatís tough. Of course thereís irony. The irony, some would argue, is the best part of this album Ė the fact that a Bad Religion, with a crossbuster as their logo, is making a record of some of the most festive songs of the Christian holiday. But I donít only want the responsibility of the irony, because the truth of the matter is Christmas is not made ironic by Bad Religion. Itís made ironic by the secularism of modern society. You donít need to be a Bad Religion fan to make Christmas ironic. If you really talk about our intellectual heritage, Bad Religion is not ironic Ė modern society is ironic. These are things Bad Religion has always sung about, the secularization of Christianity. Thatís as deep as weíve ever gotten into our criticism of religion.

I really enjoyed their Christmas album and was pleasantly surprised that they were very respectful to Christian carols which obviously mean quite a lot to people, in as far as not changing up the lyrics to meet their own personal opinions etc... Good on them!

While the Rolling Stone article has some inaccuracies, it's still a great read. Awesome album.
