Bad Religion marks Inauguration Day with new song, "Emancipation of the Mind"


Bad Religion is commemorating Inauguration Day with new music.

The punk veterans have dropped a previously unheard song called “Emancipation of the Mind.” The track was originally recorded during the sessions for Bad Religion’s latest album, 2019’s Age of Unreason.

“I think the song really is a celebration of enlightenment values that can be cultivated through enthusiastic learning and open-mindedness,” says vocalist Greg Graffin in a statement.

“So often we’re told what to think,” he adds. “But learning how to think (as opposed to learning what to think) is a true feeling of emancipation from the constraints of indoctrination that are so commonplace in our society.”

You can download “Emancipation of the Mind” now via digital outlets.
