Lol. Bad Religion and Rise Against disagree. And, going mainstream is like going Black...you don't go back.

in my oppinion punk going "mainstream" is a good thing (as long as the bands dont sell out ) because real punk has a message and the more people hear the message the more impact it will have....

I doubt you'd say that if you were in a band and had to wash dishes or work in McDonald's just to pay for rent and rehearsal time so you could do a band in the first place.

What I think he meant was, it shouldn't give you limos and big houses, but they should be able to live off it.

Despite the whole going mainstream or whatever, I still enjoy to vitalize bad religion every once in a while, especially the Empire Strikes First. Plus I gained a lot of respect for the band, or at least Graffin, when I read an article about him about The New Atheism, he didn't come of like the typical over-exposed punk-rocker, which I found nice.

Ultimately I feel going "mainstream" is a case-by-case basis, usually in favor of the negative side though.
