You knew you were at the top of the totem pole when a friend made a mixtape for YOU.  As a tribute to one of the favorite rock bands of the 80s/early 90s, SPIN magazine has put together a “mixtape” you can download of 12 artists covering Bad Religion’s popular tunes — for FREE!

Click here to read the article about this album (oh, excuse me, “mixtape”), then click the link after the 2nd paragraph to download the 12 song-mix “Germs of Perfection: A Tribute to Bad Religion”. Crank up the tunes, sing at the top of your lungs, and relive the good ‘ol days!
