After more than 30 years of performing, it would take more than a little rain to stop Bad Religion from doing what they do best. And despite the less than stellar conditions yesterday, that’s exactly what they did.
Bad Religion rocked the National Mall with an hourlong set filled with some of their biggest hits, and even a few older songs from their vast catalogue.
The band, now in their 32nd year of existence, was in town for the Reason Rally, a free rally intended to unify and embolden secular people nationwide.
The band took the stage at 5:30 p.m., and over the course of the next hour proved that despite their age, they could still put on an amazing show, ripping through 17 blistering, powerful songs, such as “21st Century Digital Boy” (See video below), “The Answer,” “Wrong Way Kids” and “Sorrow.”
The thousands of people who braved the rainy weather with ponchos and umbrellas were not disappointed.
Even in their fourth decade together as a band, Bad Religion showed they still know how to rock with the best of them.
