L.A. Invasion '82 was a promoted national tour with Bad Religion and The Adolescents. It was promoted in an advertisement for How Could Hell Be Any Worse?, taking place from July 7, 1982 through August 7, 1982. It never took place.
Jay (2020): "I'll give it a go [as to why it didn't happen]. Because this ad was placed long before the tour materialized, The Adolescents were probably just entering the worst of their drug implosion by the Summer of '82. Pretty sure for us, Greg had gone back to Wisconsin and I joined Wasted Youth just to have something to do. I think the idea of this tour was solid (there was also a circle jerks tour), but there just wasn't the abilitity to commit for the future."
