Bad Religion, Daddy No Please Dont Do It …

OK lets take a moment to visit Bad Religion on Jimmy Kimmel. 

What is the point of this hot mess?  These guys are about as cool as the Joes at Home Depot lawn center.  I'm sorry, I know I should say 'right on' but I cant. 
I would love to hate it musically, I would love to say something really negative about Gurlewitz especially, but I cant.  Musically they're sound, the age is only in the voice and appearance, and that is plenty enough.
The point is ,as record executives and captains of industry how 'punk' can you really be?  That's like your kid in the pit down there (a lame ass circle pit btw, who the hell let that get filmed?) That's your son and the kid next door that you take to Eagle Scouts each week, you paid for his orthodontist work.
I want to be 20 again but I'm not and you will never see me pretending to be some angst filled anti system anarchist.  That is the epitome of poser and Bad Religion WERE so bad ass back in the day that you were a wuss if you didn't love them.  Hardcore was hardcore and now its Metamucil-core.
Hello hairline?
So can you be too old too rock and roll?
You can be too old to sing about teen aged wasteland when your own kids are rebelling against you.  Lets use that as a rule of thumb, if you are old enough to have a kid who can rebel against you- you're too fucking old to be a punk band.
Listen to it, write it, mentor a band, hell help your kids start a band but if any genre belongs to the youth it is good old fashioned punk.  I just have to laugh looking at the paunchy gut receding hairlines on these pops.  Cmon its just the absolute opposite of what we were all part of in the beginning. 
Hey, They're touring with Four Year Strong..yeah, who set that one up?
