Band Name Origins:

  • The band was formed when the members were in their mid-teens, so (naturally) they wanted a name that would be somewhat shocking. Having Head Cheese and Bad Religion as the two final alternatives, they chose the latter. Submitted by: Chimaera
  • Point blank, the lead singer Greg Graffin said they were young and just wanted to piss people off because they were an angry young punk band. Submitted by: Avery

Stupid Band Names:

  • To paraphrase Juliette Lewis in "Cape Fear": "You're a bad religion. Bad! Bad! Bad!" Submitted by: theindependentguy

Story about this misheard lyric by: Selfish Sam

I kept hearing this song while I was playing the Dreamcast version of Crazy Taxi and I couldn't quite make out the lyrics. At first I thought they were saying "Twenty, twenty-two" or "Turning twenty-two," but then I figured out that they were really saying "Ten in 2010."

Song Parody Fragments:

"All There Is"
Better Lyrics:
This song goes out to all the homeless hobos
Living inside a box beside the Shop ní Save
The dirty nomads, they eat breadcrumbs, not Kraft dinners
And mark signs on the sidewalk just so they can talk
And every one needs a bath, wears flannel, smells bad
They are homeless, they are dirty
Add it up, you get a hobo, or a migrant
Either term can be used
In suburbs, tell me
Are hobos all there is?
Original Lyrics:
This song goes out to all the hopeless sinners
With grave allegiances so meaningless and vain
The walking wounded, in a pageant of contenders
Who walk upon a rail of pain for just a pail of rain
And everything is barely mist, blood relations and bricks
My expression, my confession
Add it up, extract a lesson more than this
Once again, like a bullet
As a friend, tell me
Can that be all there is?

Cat's foot, iron claw,
Neurosurgeons scream for more,
Innocence raped with napalm fire...

Well, they don't rhyme, they have nothing to do with the rest of the lyrics, they make no sense, and they're nicked from another song. Nice going, Mr Graffin...
