In our interview with Bad Religion's Brett Gurewitz about the legendary Los Angeles punk band's new album True North, the 50-year-old guitarist explains that, "When we write, if we're successful with a song then we're connecting with other humans ... For the most part, people outgrow punk rock so we're connecting with younger people." Indeed, in the just-out music video for the LP's titular track, a young punk with a Bieber-fresh face finds himself moved to action by the older band. What could be a languid day spent inside of his memorabilia-bedecked room soon becomes a fierce air-drumming sesh before he slips on the Coolest Shoes on Earth (Chucks, duh) and heads out for untold adventures. In listening to "True North" on his vinyl copy of True North he discovers true north. So ... does that count as an episode of northern exposure? If ya missed 'em before, make sure you take a spin through "Dept. of False Hope" and Bad Religion's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon performance of "Past Is Dead."
