Here’s a funny bit of info: NOFX is the band that founded our fine record company and it’s only after we’ve been releasing their stuff for 15 years are we finally getting around to writing a biography for them.
We finally asked NOFX frontman Fat Mike if he could punch himself in the face and “please write us a fucking bio!” and he eventually got around to writing us an uninformative drunken e-mail.
NOFX was formed in L.A. back in 1983 and has released 10 studio full lengths, about 6 EPs, and a metric ton of 7”s.

NOFX was one of the first punk bands that I got into.
It seems that NOFX is content to pump out an album every few years and isn't really concerned with pushing their boundaries at all.
I cant believe that NOFX is still releasing albums…They must be pushing 45 at this point…I remember buying White Trash, Two Heebs and Bean 11 years ago at a record store that no longer exists.

The first disc features a whole bunch of great tracks that until now were scattered across a truckload of 7-inches, compilations, and EPs, as well as a brand new track called "Pimps and Hookers," a special dub remix of the song "Eat The Meek," and a super-old demo cut.
Five tracks of urgent political punk--even FAT MIKE knows a fucked-up world when he sees one--four of which will be on the new album, the fifth, "Hardcore '84" is exclusive to this release.
Punk rock tycoons NOFX's bitchin' ten-year retrospective documentary transforms your living room into a mosh pit with exclusive footage that spans their riotous formative years, running from their first tour in 1985 up to FAT MIKE's wedding a decade later.

 Splendid E-zine reviews: NOFX
I first came across NOFX in a friend's car almost a decade ago.
Ten years have passed, and while they should have grown out of that phase, NOFX are still noisy punks and I still love them.
With songs like "My Vagina," which expresses regrets over the consequences of a sex change, and "Theme From a NOFX Album", which contains the mature chorus "Buy me a Beck's Beer/ Or pass me a bong/ Gimme some Bushmills/ I'll sing you this song", the boys are still as stupid and fun-loving as ever.

Most of NOFX's albums have wonderfully funny lyrics, but might as well have one riff for all the difference in the melodies.
This is not the case with "Heavy Petting Zoo." This is the closest NOFX has come to making a truly classic punk...
Most nofx fans would say that this was the transitional album fo the band and as far as the musical content goes for me it is just as cheesey as the rest.

 NOFX - Biography - AOL Music
Formed in Berkeley, CA, in 1983 and relocating to Los Angeles not long afterwards, NOFX steered clear of major labels and commercial exposure over the course of their career, recording an impressive number of full-lengths albums plus an assortment of EPs and singles.
In 2002, NOFX sifted through countless tapes and recording sessions, eventually collecting 47 songs for 45 or 46 Songs That Weren't Good Enough to Go on Our Other Records.
Back on the music front, NOFX next released the EP Never Trust a Hippy in March 2006, and the full-length Wolf in Wolves' Clothing followed a month later.

 Splendid E-zine reviews: NOFX
I know they are part of the punk hierarchy, have released quite a few albums and are well loved and respected by fans, fellow bands and critics alike.
After listening to the album I'd have to guess that those Blink boys, as well as corporate punks the Offspring, have copped a note or two from the NOFX playbook.
And while those other bands may have become more commercially successful, they come nowhere near recreating the intensity and power that NOFX yield on The Decline.

 NOFX Online - About NOFX
NOFX is a punk rock band that's been together since 1984 (not all of them, Fat Mike and Eric Melvin were in the band from its start).
NOFX is an anti-rasistic and not commercial band, so you won't be watching them on MTV or listening them on commercial radio stations.
NOFX, except for a lot of music, recorded also a video named '10 years of fuckin' up' which I haven't seen so far, but I've heard that it's very cool, and if you have a chance, I recommend watching it.

Rancid can be heard ripping the shit out of this split with their versions of such NOFX classics as "Moron Bros", "Bob", and "Brews" just to name a few.
Then, NOFX's punked up version of Rancid's feel-good anthem "Corozon de Oro" is one of the standout features on this disc, as is their reggae-laced version of Rancid's punked out "Radio".
While NOFX choose to take Rancid songs and show them in a more NOFX light, Rancid seems to take the less serious approach and let down their guard a little bit to have some fun with the NOFX songs.

NoFX- Warped Tour 2006 info, One of the very first bands to sign with Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitzs then- fledgling Epitaph Records, NOFX formed in the early 80s as a three-piece.
NOFXs first two releases for the famed indie, 1989s S&M Airlines and 1991s Ribbed, featured an indefinite mix of hardcore speediness and Burketts persistent leanings toward sarcastic hilarity.
Furthermore, NOFX decided to adopt a "no- media" stance circa 1995--a clever maneuver, designed to maintain the bands indie cred, which hurt their record sales not a whit.

NOFX, a band way past their peak and still propelled by the success of their mid-nineties classics releasing a retrospective ‘Best Of’.
Mind you, the clues were all there in the last couple of albums, from the hackneyed melodicism of ‘War On Errorism’ or the pun-barbed corn of ‘Pump Up The Valuum’; this was the sound of one of punk rock’s greatest and most original bands trying to keep up with their own excellence.
Whichever way you look at it NOFX have had a pretty eventful career thanks in no small part to their illustrious leader Fat Mike.

 REVOLVER / ALBUM / NOFX - The War On Errorism
NoFx är urdjuret, fröet till dagens MTV-punk, och skivor som t ex 'Punk In Drublic' låter ungefär som Blink 182 eller Sum 41 kunnat göra om de varit något mer talangfulla, mindre sondmatade med kommersiella influenser och inte fullt så aningslöst lotsade av skivindustrins allra mest korrupta kolportörer.
NOFX är, har alltid varit, och kommer alltid vara den moderna punkens ägare.

While reworking NOFX's "Stickin' in My Eye," Rancid's virtuosic bassist Matt Freeman adds a hyperkinetic undercurrent and Lars Frederiksen's expressive vocals introduce a new sense of panic.
NOFX's Rancid adaptations follow a simple formula: Speed up the beats, simplify the bass lines, snotty up the vocals.
NOFX's covers, though technically acceptable, sound flat because Rancid's songs -- Armstrong's in particular -- contain gruff yet earnest emotional displays that can't be adequately duplicated by any vocalist, especially NOFX's sneering Fat Mike.
