Like a rock Like a planet Like a fucking atom bomb I'll remain unperturbed By the joy and the madness That I encounter everywhere I turn. I've seen it all along In books and magazines Like a twitch before dying Like a pornographic scene. There's a flower behind the window There's an ugly laughing man Like a hummingbird in silence Like the blood on my door It's a generator. Like the blood on my door Wash me clean and I will run Until I reach the shore

Generator demonstrates an improved sense of melody from Greg Graffin, which doesn't mean Bad Religion have abandoned their blistering hardcore inclinations. Instead, the band has managed to incorporate melody within the framework, adding an increased depth to their already provocative songs.
It’s no doubt that Bad Religion has always been, and continues to be, one of punk’s most beloved bands. Yet, much of BR’s love has often been derived from their earlier work; certainly most people would name-drop albums like How Could Hell be Any Worse", Suffer, and Against the Grain as their strongest. And though it is certainly arguable that much of their later work from the mid-1990s onward can written off as confused, uninspired, and repetitive, it’s surprising to see how much Generator, this mid-career masterpiece is neglected. The guitars are loud and crunchy but still retain a tinny-kind of treble edge that avoids the grunge sounds of the early-1990s.
