I would have said that in 10th grade.

Fucking goddamn awful.


You listened to the song about Tegan & Sara? You didn't think that shit was funny?

They're a crappy punk rock band that mostly sings about drugs. This new song about being an annoying douche to an indie rock lesbian is excellent.

I hate the vocal melodies and the Crate amp sound to their guitars.

That song is a piece of shit.

NOFX sucked in the 90s and have apparently continued flying the suck flag well into the 2000s.

EDIT: Pop Punk bands like NOFX are throat-fuckingly awful. There are more grievous offenders than them, by far. But still, throat-fuckingly awful.

One more thing: according to wikipedia, Fat Mike is 42 years old.

He's 42 years old, and he's singing about creeping out the singer from some semi-obscure indie folk band by asking her where he could buy some blow.

Hell yeah being 42 makes it better! I agree with a lot of the reasons above. NOFX is a shitty band, sure their guitars sound more like bubblegum pop than the usual aluminum beard flavor; yeah, they have made the same album of basically crappy shit over and over and over; yes almost all their songs (esp. pollitical) are dumb.

But they have sucked ass, dicked around constantly, made the dick move as the 42 year old backstage man, took way too many pills, and are not ashamed! They're fucking successful at it! The fact that they do this shit for money and "make it" is NOT CRAP.

All that pop-punk shit was like Fisher Price for me. I'll value it for what it was - my springboard towards better and greater musical things.

Still love it. Playing it is fun. Hearing is a nice, I suppose. Loosens me up a bit.


Having not listened to NOFX during my first go-round, I find it difficult to care now.

If I had to choose between the Descendents and NOFX, I would go Descendents every time.

NOFX doesn't deserve to be compared to Descendents.

NOFX is the perfect example of quantity over quality. So Long And Thanks For All the Shoes and the Decline are the only exceptions.

The Ramones and the Descendents are the only bands that mixed pop and punk well, and even the D'ants had a ton of throatfuckingly bad songs. Ramones drew from the 50's/60's, whereas Descendents were more like 80's pop.

Fat Mike wanted to put out Descendents records but, pass on putting out All records.
No excuse for that.

I was mostly 'offended' by how many people still go out and watch this polka punk band.
