Bad Religion: Fuck You (2012)
The first single from the new Bad Religion album, True North, is called, rather indelicately, "Fuck You". It's got the charging tempos, oozin ahs, clattering guitar and erudite verbosity we associate with prime BR, even if the song seems more restrained then the title promises. I'm gonna guess this is a Mr. Brett song, not only for the more artful lyrics ("sometimes just a word/Is the most satisfying sound") but for the compelling bridge that shows off one of the man's signature contributions to the band's sound.
The songs foretells a strong record (it's scheduledd for 2013) but it sure ain't gonna top one of my all-time fave Bad Religion curse tunes, "Hooray For me (and Fuck You)":
