All Good Soldiers

Album: Recipe For Hate (1993)
  • This song is about how the government of the United States is a Christian government. The soldiers answer to the president, the president answers to his god. If you are a "good" soldier in the eyes of moral America, then you, too, believe in God. >>

  • Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz wrote this song. He explained that the idea behind the lyric is that "there's no such thing as a good soldier." After all, if there were no soldiers, there wouldn't be any wars.
