From the opening strains of the politico title-track to the countrified pedal steel guitar on "Man with a Mission," from the anti-establishment anthem "American Jesus" to the heart-rending ballad "Struck a Nerve," Bad Religion's Recipe for Hate is by far their most eclectic album, and one that never ceases to stir up controversy among fans. Graffin, a seething combination of perfect pitch and skeptical emotion, reaffirms his place as one of the best punk rock vocalists on this record.

Guest appearances abound, from Eddie Vedder (of Pearl Jam fame) harmonizing on "American Jesus" and "Watch it Die," to Contrete Blonde's Johnette Napolitano's stunning vocals on "Struck a Nerve," to Claw Hammer's John Wahl and Chris Bagarozzi's searing guitar leads on "Kerosene." As the songwriting team Graffin/Gurewitz pull back from their more introspective writing that appeared on some of the previous albums, they focus ever more keenly on the events of the day. Recipe For Hate is a scathing commentary on the state of the nation, a social criticism addressing alcoholism, abortion and homelessness.

Reissued on limited-edition Tiger's Eye Translucent vinyl to celebrate the album's 30th anniversary!
