Influential and lasting, doubt they will be recognized too soon however unless artists today start listing them as a major influence

They need to because they revitalize the US punk scene in the late 80s and a lot of punk bands would not be around today if it were not for them.

Do they deserve to be in the rock and roll hall of fame? Yes. Is it going to happen? Probably not. I
t is quite literally a popularity contest. In most spots worldwide, you say "bad Religion" people go "who?" So, sadly, I'll say no

When you think about Bad Religion, you'll think about pop songs. I think NO! I think about great songs, songs sbout political instability. Something that bands like Rage Against The Machine, Pennywise and others have used and made impact to the world. People don't know but this is real songwriting, not some lame shit that you hear on the radio or on MTV or even better MYSPACE. The world needs to at least know about real music. This Is It.

Bad Religion should definitely be in the HOF. They led the punk revival of the 90's by forming the Epitaph label which was the first place you looked when discovering up and coming punk rock music. It's hard for BR to really get the credit they deserve because there are so many imitators out there, but remember, that skate punk style was created by them. That should count for something.

definitly one of the most influential punk bands ever there right up there with the ramones and the sex pistols, they need to get in

Yes, just for being one of the most unique, talented and articulate hardcore bands out there. They were at the beginning of the LA Hardcore scene, so I'm sure they've had some influence.

They influenced green day so they should be pretty good and be in the rock and roll hall of fame.
