Found a cache of old homemade mix CDs after I moved. One had the song "Let It Burn" by Bad Religion on it, from the album The New America (2000). The album was produced by Todd Rundgren and is a bit lighter than Bad Religion's other albums.
"Let It Burn" has an interesting instrumental section. It sounds a lot like the opening of "Bat Out Of Hell." I don't know if this was a coincidence or a joke at Todd's-- and Meat's-- expense. (I doubt Jim would have been the target, but who knows what kind of music geeks those Bad Religionists are.)
