Seminal Punk band Bad Religion will be playing a free show tomorrow, Saturday March 24 on the National Mall as part of The Reason Rally. Formed in 1979 in Los Angeles, they are often credited for being involved in the revival of punk rock and inspiring several subsequent punk bands during the late 1980s, as well as influencing a large number of other punk and rock musicians throughout their career.
Bad Religion is considered one of the most successful independent punk acts, selling over 5 million albums worldwide, and charting two singles on the Mainstream Rock charts and seven singles in the Top 40 of the Alternative Rock charts.
Still a force to be reckoned with more than 30 years after they first took the stage, this is a show that shouldn’t be missed. If you’ve never heard of Bad Religion (and if you’re a fan of the genre, then you really need to learn your history better!), just a fan of punk in general, or are looking for a great way to spend some time on Saturday, make sure you check out their performance!
Bad Religion performs at 4:45pm, and the rest of the Reason Rally schedule can be found here.
