BR Lexicon | The Bad Religion Page - Since 1995
Quote of the day: "There's a world outside but I can't really make it. There's a life to lead but I can't exactly fake it. Yet the mood feels right. But my island is sinking out of sight." - The Island
BR Lexicon
Well, we all know how smart the world's greatest punk band is. This lexicon should prove it! Herein lies most of the big words found in the lyrics of just about every Bad Religion song. Some words might not be so obscure to you, but when in doubt, we threw it in anyway. There should be something here for everybody. Enjoy!

Many thanks to Eric Legault!

Currently the lexicon contains 561 words.
