Rumors of Motorhead frontman Lemmy's demise have been greatly exaggerated (again!), TMZ takes a break from Bieber coverage to focus on a Circle Jerk, an ex-White Stripe and a Black Key and Black Sabbath says Bill Ward was too overweight for their reunion tour, then announces a new amusement park attraction.
Bad Religion has sustained their sonic energy and activist passion across three decades, maintaining their integrity, relevance and every-other-year release schedule while growing, maturing and holding the interest of their aging fan base and attracting the youth that comprised their original audience.

It's no stretch of the definition to anoint Bad Religion's Brett Gurewitz and Greg Graffin as godfathers of the American Punk movement. The trick has been to sustain their level of sonic energy and activist passion across three decades, maintaining their integrity, relevance and every-other-year release schedule. Amazingly, Bad Religion has done exactly that since their 1981 debut, a string that continues with their 15th album, 'The Dissent of Man.'
