80–85 is the first compilation album by Bad Religion, released in 1991. It is a collection of their early recordings, predating their third studio album Suffer (1988).

Background[]

80–85 includes the entire How Could Hell Be Any Worse? album as well as two official EPs (Bad Religion and Back to the Known), plus three tracks from the Public Service.

80–85 is out of print, but on April 6, 2004, a remastered version of this album was released. It shares the same name as their 1982 debut How Could Hell Be Any Worse? and includes the same track listing as 80–85. Reissues of their post-1985 releases – Suffer, No Control, Against the Grain and Generator – were released on the same day as the 2004 remastered version of this album, as well as a DVD reissue of their live VHS Along the Way.

Cover art and interior photography contact sheets are by Edward Colver.
