I started listening to Bad Religion about 6 years ago. I can't remember how I got into 'em, but I have always like Swedish punkrock and Bad Religion just sounded great to me. The greatest day of my life was when I, in May '98 had a chance to se BR play live. It was an excellent show and after I met all guys in BR. They were all very nice especially Greg Hetson and Brian Baker.
I also like punk bands like Minor Threat, Good Ridance, Stiff little fingers and The Circle Jerks.
Apart from listening to BR I like to swim, to fish and to play the Guitar. I've played in a lot of different bands, but right now I'm not in a band. We were mostly playing Bad Religion covers like "Skyscraper" and "Fuck Armageddon ... This Is Hell".

A friend of mine introduced me to Bad Religion about a year ago and at first I thought "What the hell is this?", but it didn't take me very long to get into BR after I listened to it a bit more. I think it was the lyrics that moved me more than anything else, it was refreshing to know I'm not the only person in the world who thinks that in general religion has done more harm than good, so I listened to it more and more. Pretty soon I had all the available albums on C.D and BR was my favourite band.
Apart from listening to BR, I like to swim, play waterpolo, go to the movies, and listen to other music. The one other thing I'm really into is Star Trek. People seem to think I'm mentally ill for this, but I don't care, to me it's just good fun. I'm not the sort of person who cares what people say or think of me. I like to have a laugh and have a good time but also to do well at school.
