Bad Brains released their new studio album worldwide on June 26, 2007 to critical acclaim. Adam Yauch (MCA of Beastie Boys) produced "Build A Nation" and it represents the first recording, aside from Beastie Boys' recordings, from the Beastie Boys' Oscilloscope laboratories. "The Brains are one of most powerful and unique bands in the world. They have been a huge influence on me," comments Adam Yauch.
Considered by some to be the "holy grail" of punk rock, the Bad Brains iconic legacy is best defined by their energy, both live and in the studio. Bad Brains are one of the definitive American punk groups who garner the same respect as the Sex Pistols, Black Flag, The Clash, and the Ramones. The band brought a new dimension to music by melding punk and reggae into an innovative style that has yet-to-be copied, thank God. DID WE MENTION THIS IS THE ORIGINAL LINEUP!?
