All Ages is a compilation album by the American punk rock band Bad Religion. It was released on November 7, 1995 through Epitaph Records. The compilation contains songs from How Could Hell Be Any Worse? to Generator, and two live tracks recorded during their 1994 European tour, which were the first tracks to feature guitarist Brian Baker.

Background[edit]

All Ages contains material from six of Bad Religion's first seven studio albums released on Epitaph, omitting songs from the band's second album Into the Unknown and their seventh album Recipe for Hate; however, "American Jesus" from Recipe for Hate was included on the Japanese edition.[3] It also contains no tracks from the Bad Religion and Back to the Known EPs. The band had left Epitaph for Atlantic in 1993, where they reissued Recipe for Hate and began to experience major worldwide commercial success.

The live tracks "Do What You Want" and "Fuck Armageddon... This Is Hell" were recorded live at the Karen Klub in Goteborg, Sweden on October 8, 1994 on Bad Religion's Stranger than Fiction tour.[4] These tracks were the first to feature guitarist Brian Baker, who had replaced Brett Gurewitz before the release of Stranger than Fiction.
