Bad Religion, whose lyrics are disturbing, provocative and downright intoxicating for many punk-rock fans. As a band, they are able to incorporate a background of harmonies and barbaric guitar playing- unlike any other punk rock. In essence, anyone who indulges in the punk-rock scene would find their music to be alluring on many levels. From their quintessential “American Jesus”, “Los Angeles Is Burning” to “Atheist Peace”, Bad Religion is able to keep their fans fuming with punk-rock vehemence. Fortunately, for fans all over, they were caught on stage performing “Television” with musician Laura Jane Grace in New York.
Laura Jane Grace is notably one of the most influential Rock n Roll figures currently. She began her legendary career in rock by forming the band Against Me. Initially, Against Me was supposed to be a solo act. However, quickly expanding, Against Me became an official band when adding other talented guitar and bass players-thus, meshing Against Me into a band that would soon become a prominent figure in new age Punk-Rock. They have continually awed fans with songs like “Thrash Unreal”, “I Was A Teenage Anarchist”, and “From Her Lips To Gods Ear” to many more. Rapidly expanding popularity, the band took a sudden turn of events after Laura Jane Grace’s first marriage had just ended. In 2012, Laura Jane Grace came out as transgender. Formerly known as, Thomas James Gabel, this brought Laura Jane Grace a lot of support from fans.
The video clip from the concert shows fans crazed. The audience was filled with fans dancing and singing along to the music, sweat and excitement. The combination duo between iconic Laura Jane Grace and monumentally gifted Bad Religion sent fans into a once in a lifetime ecstasy experience.
