‘O Come, O Come Emmanuel ’
‘White Christmas ’
‘Little Drummer Boy ’
‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen ’

Bad Religion formed in LA in 1979. While frontman Greg Graffin has remained a constant in the band, the lineup has changed several times. Its current incarnation features Graffin alongside Brett Gurewitz and Jay Bentley. The band have released 16 studio albums to date – their last LP was ‘True North’, which came out in January 2013.
