Bad Religion tore it up on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night (January 30), with a searing take of the bitterly unsentimental "Past Is Dead," off the punk icons' latest LP, True North. "A measure of success / is how well you forget," frontman Greg Graffin sings, drawing out every syllable before the Los Angeles band barrels into the three-minute rampage. (It's a decidely different approach from Fallon's other "Bad Religion" guest.) Despite the "Tomorrow's not for me and you," lyric on True North's "Dept. of False Hope," the 34-year-old crew is looking forward. Co-founding member Brett Gurewitz recently copped to which Bad Religion record he'd like to forget, and the group's 16th album has also become their highest charting full-length to date: It's currently hollering "Fuck You" from No. 19 on Billboard's Top 200.
