How Could Hell Be Any Worse? is the debut studio album by Bad Religion, originally released in 1982. Released almost a year after their self-titled EP, it was financed by a $3,000 loan by guitarist Brett Gurewitz’s father. It’s success surprised the band when it sold 10,000 copies in under a year. How Could Hell Be Any Worse? was recorded over two time periods at Track Record Studios in North Hollywood, California, during October-November 1980 and again in January 1981.
