I've seen them bracketed with bands like Bloodhound Gang or Sum 41. I don't see why. Fat Mike is a clever lyricist at times and has a great punk voice. And they're unashamedly political and more clued-up than lots of other bands. I am a bit more ambivalent about them these days, but you can't say 'Punk In Drublic' wasn't a brilliant album. Can you?

That's a fair statement. I was 14 so whatever.

Liked this one more:

I like that album but this sentence is righteously stupid, regardless of which album you're referring to.

i think i "discovered" punk in 1994 after a trip to the rock and roll hall of fame and being mesmerized by all things sex pistols.

NOFX is great. A lot of their more current albums are really awesome too. Their latest one kinda sucked but Coaster and Wolves in wolves clothing are both fantastic.

I have no idea why people regard NOFX as some pathetic band to make fun of here. They've been one of the most consistent punk bands out there and they're always switching shit up and keeping things interesting.

My guess is it comes down to ignorance mostly. Anyhow, cool to see another NOFX fan here:2thumbsup:

Played this track at a high-school band comp with some buddies when I was 15. Cool tune, but the band generally sucks.

THEY ARE A SOPHOMORIC BAND, PRACTICALLY THE DEFINITION OF IT. IF SOMEONE WANTS TO VOUCH FOR CREDIBILITY THAT'S FINE BUT ULTIMATELY THE SCHTICK WEARS THIN AFTER A MAX OF ABOUT 2 ALBUMS. IF YOU GO TO SEE THEM AT A FESTIVAL THAT'S FINE IF YOU MAKE A POINT OF SEEING THEM AT A CLUB I'LL THINK YOU'RE JUST A SKA NERD BUT IF YOU TALK ABOUT THEM THE WAY THAT FUZZY DOES THEN I'LL THINK YOU ARE A SIMPLE MINDED BRAINDEAD ASSCLOWN

I HATE THEM THEY ARE TERRIBLE AND THEIR SONGS ARE A PRODUCT OF JUVENILE MISOGYNISTIC, HOMOPHOBIC SUBURBAN DUDE NORMALCY

Dude the Tegan and Sara song is pretty light-hearted... Atleast as far as NOFX goes.

If you're not offended by something, you don't get to decide if it's offensive.

:dammit:

It's music for neanderthals. "Fat Mike" is a neanderthal stage name for a guy who revels in his own stupidity. It's fine if you're in the mood for something like that or whatever, but trying to say they're a legit good band goes too far.

But bigger than that, the band is just so mediocre that the only excuse for listening to them would be if you've already listened to the countless other bands that do what they do better and smarter.

Fat Mike has his flaws and he embraces them. He doesn't try to put on some charade and an act like an artist like Billy Corgan does.

If theres all these "countless" other bands that do what Nofx does "better and smarter" I'd love to hear them because I haven't really heard any. So please do share.
