"Suffer" is the third full-length album (and fifth recording overall) by the American punk rock band Bad Religion, which was released on September 8, 1988."All Ages" booklet.] It was their first album featuring the original line-up since their previous break-up. It is also the band's first official studio album recorded with second guitarist Greg Hetson (although he contributed one track on "How Could Hell Be Any Worse?" and also played on the "Back to the Known" EP). Like their albums up to "Generator", "Suffer" was also remastered on April 6, 2004. The original release is now out of print.

Although "Suffer" was not charted in Billboard, it is considered by many to be one of the best punk albums of the 1980s, as well as its follow-up "No Control". After its release, "Suffer" quickly became Epitaph Records best seller and was the label's best-selling third album for a number of years, until the release of The Offspring's 1994 highly acclaimed album "Smash". A plethora of third-wave punk bands cite this album as a major inspiration; NOFX's Fat Mike has called it "the record that changed everything."

Album cover

The distinctive and slightly disturbing album cover features a drawing of a teenager on fire wearing a t-shirt of Bad Religion's crossbuster logo, designed by Jerry Mahoney. The cover art was parodied for NOFX's Surfer EP.

*Alternative Press (3/02, p.96) - Included in AP's "Essential Punk Influences '02 Style" - "...Their definitive album....they'd never eclipse this fireball of creative energy."
