Brett said he wasn't against bootlegs of live shows but was against bootlegs of studio albums which he called "more a 'counterfeit' than a bootleg". Brian: "I don't mind bootlegs at all, except that in my case they show how truly shitty I can play when I'm jumping around". Jay: "anyone who goes to the trouble and expense of taping a show or making a T-shirt or bootlegging whatever has the option of choosing hundreds of bands of which they can bootleg; if they choose bad religion, I have to consider that a compliment. The only issue that I have ever raised with them is what they do with their profits. I have told numerous bootleggers that I don't mind if they sell products with our name on them if they give some of the money they make to charity. I don't care which one, choose one that means something to you, but give back a little something."
There are around about 100 bootlegs of BR shows (but half of them only exist on tape and have never been released by a bootleg label). Several bootlegs which claim to be recorded in the U.S. include songs from the gig at the Paradiso, Amsterdam, 4.4.1992. This is true for the Christmas Show Bootleg 1994 (tracks 11-24), Promise of Prosperity and Classic Traxx. To top this, Classic Traxx contains the studio versions of Stranger than Fiction, Leave Mine To Me and Infected, with some crowd noises mixed under.
