Bad Religion

How Could Hell Be Any Worse

Epitaph 86700

Released on April 6, 2004


$13.25

This digitally re-mastered version of "How Could Hell Be Any Worse?" takes the place of the "80-85" album which is now out of print. It contains the exact same track listing as "80-85" and now has the packaging it should have had in the first place...

With this album a fuse was lit, leading to an explosion that spawned a new religion: Bad Religion. This, their second record and first LP is nothing short of genius. Shattered-glass guitar riffs, fast, furious drums, and a 16 year old Greg Graffin's voice for the ages. The coalescence of lyrical intellect and savage music make for a sound seldom (if ever) heard before. The impact of this record still resonates to this day.

Classic tracks like "Fuck Armageddon...This Is Hell," "American Dream," and "The Voice Of God Is Government" are as crucial and socially lucid as the day they were created in a southern California garage. When the greatest punk records of all-time are discussed, How Could Hell Be Any Worse is sure to be mentioned.

Right from the very beginning, Bad Religion were punk experts. It's very raw and may be kinda rough to those who only know of BR's more "modern" sound, but it's still absolutely essential - I can't stress that enough. If you hate this album, then you don't appreciate real punk, simple as that.

The awesome debut from the most intelligent punk band ever. it sounds a lot different from their newer stuff because the sound quality isn't as good. But hey I like that sound. Get theis ASAP!

It's like if Black Flag actually put out a good album!

A more aggressive, old school hardcore sound than the Suffer/No Control stuff. You'll like it. I know I do.

so as everyone else has said, this album is classic, essential, and just downright incredible. brett and greg started out as very solid songwriters and only grew from there to become two of the best this world has seen (in my opinion). this is raw and sincere punk that hits hard and has a lot of substance. there's a few duds but theres 28 songs!! awsome album cover too.

This album is so amizingly righteous, good classic Bad Religion. Along the Way is my personal favorite, but you can never go wrong with We're Only Gonna Die, Greg sounds so young. If you're barely getting into Bad Religion, unlikely, but anyways, this would be a great first album.

At first listen I didn't care for it. It's not the Bad Religion you hear on Suffer and later on, its a very raw old punk sound. Maybe sorta like Minor Threat or MDC perhaps. After a few listens it gets quite a bit better, I like it now. Its pretty cool to hear what they sounded like back in the day. I don't know if I would recommend it, unless its too a big fan like myself.
