The band has discussed how they feel about their music on several occasions.
Hetson: "We're not allowed the luxury of being progressive. This is the style I pretty much grew up playing on guitar."; "We all think every record we make is good. But it's not like one is more important than another."
Greg: "The music is very sparse, the guitars aren't multi-layered or processed. It's not elaborate; it's something that anyone can play in their garage. It's very populist oriented".
Brian: "Bad Religion has always been a vocals first and guitars second type of band - but it's always been a strong second".
Jay: "I think we are very good at what we do, and what we do is Bad Religion".
