Riff: Bad Religion – “My Head is Full of Ghosts”

Jan 21, 2013

There’s a stranger in the house – I don’t need no exorcism/I need a key, and the lock is inside out

from My Head is Full of Ghosts lyrics by Bad Religion

While “Ghosts” follows the patterns in all of True North, this is one of the stronger jams to come out of it as Graffin waxes poetic about “not being alone” thanks to “apparitions.” North represents why many think punk is all the same. In this case, they’d be right. Still, it definitely works here.
