Greg Graffin is a best-selling author, PhD'd professor who teaches at UCLA and Cornell, and also just happens to front one of the greatest punk rock bands of all time, Bad Religion.

Graffin's academia background involves geology, zoology and teaching Life Science. He's also been against the grain (hey,see what we did there?) with his thoughts on religion, populations and evolution through his books "Anarchy Evolution" and "Population Wars", along with an extensive history of thought-provoking punk songs like "I Want To Conquer The World," "Kyoto Now," "Sinister Rouge," "Recipe For Hate" and many others under his belt.

He also is an inspiration to the first book this author wrote "Punk rock and UFOs: Cryptozoology meets Anarchy." This past October while interviewing the scientific-minded Graffin for the Houston Chronicle, he weighed in on whether he believes intelligent life is out there or not.
