I suspect that the permissions on /usr/bin/bash are preventing you
from running it.  What does this following say?

  ls -ld /usr/bin/bash

Also, /usr/bin/bash is not a normal location for bash.  Normally bash
would reside in /bin/bash .  Perhaps you also have one there?

  ls -ld /bin/bash /usr/local/bin/bash
