Episode 132 - The Bad Religion Head to Head with Anna Goldthorp (Side A)
Chris and Mark have threatened Dave with a Bad Religion episode for years, so we felt it was time to put him out his misery. We decided on a head to head, as the band have so many albums that it’s quite difficult to pick just one unsung record (we fully admit that they have a few sung albums). Dave’s indifference to the band and, well, to a lot of punk music, meant that we had to get a punk in to level the playing field. Enter our good pal and frequent guest Anna Goldthorp. A true punk, but also absolutely not a Bad Religion fan.
Thus began our epic quest to cleave through Bad Religion’s back catalogue. Epic is indeed the word cause this fucker ended up taking almost 3 and a half goddamn hours to record. Both parts one and two are pretty heavy on the Bad Religion chat (obv) and trivia (double obv) so unless you’re a fan of the band, this episode may very well be a test of our listerns’ mettle.
In part one we talk about all of the band’s albums and toss around facts like they’re going out of style. Note: this episode and next week’s are two of the funniest episodes we’ve ever made, so hopefully you’ll stick around for the whole ride even if you’re not a fan.
