30+ years and 16 albums in, you know what to expect, and Bad Religion doesn’t disappoint. Or deviate from the style they themselves created. Immaculate production, fast-paced, quality skate punkpop, layered whoa-ohs, and scathing cultural criticism, it’s all here in spades. “Fuck You” is as brief and to-the-point as the sentiment, and as fine a representation of the album as any. This track could be off any of their albums, meaning fans will eat it up and it’ll be rattled off with the classic faves as punk songs you need to know.
