When Bad Religion issued GENERATOR in 1992, the alternative/punk scene had changed radically since the band started a decade earlier. The genre had become accepted by the mainstream–but this didn't stop the band from issuing one of their most controversial albums among fans. The quintet slowed down the tempo on GENERATOR a bit, but there's still plenty of aggression and venom to go around.

Writing sessions for Generator began around late 1990/early 1991. After Schayer joined Bad Religion in April 1991, the band immediately started work on their follow-up to Against the Grain. Album was recorded almost live in the studio, because, at the time, guitarist Brett Gurewitz had moved Westbeach to larger premises, and for the first time, the entire band could play in the studio at the same time. He stated that it was "time to change" and the band "did it in a different studio, but as far as the songwriting, it was a deliberate effort to try something different". Although the album was completed in the spring of 1991, it was not released until 1992. The album was originally planned for release sometime around mid to late 1991, but was delayed until March 1992 as to not compete with then-current album Against the Grain. It was also the band's first release with drummer Bobby Schayer, who replaced Pete Finestone during the Against the Grain tour.

Generator demonstrates an improved sense of melody from Greg Graffin, which doesn't mean Bad Religion have abandoned their blistering hardcore inclinations. Instead, the band has managed to incorporate melody within the framework, adding an increased depth to their already provocative songs.
