    My favorite songs:
    Punk Guy
    Happy Guy
    I'm Telling Tim
    Drugs Are Good
    180 Degress
    The Brews
    Stickin In My Eye
    The Decline (best piece of music ever written)
    All His Suits Are Torn
    Bottles To The Ground
    Wore Out Soles On My Party Boots

    I like a lot of their older stuff. I grew up on NOFX in middle school and some of high school. Their last good album was the war on errorism, I haven't followed them up since then. Is a wolf in sheeps clothing any good? I really liked 45 or 46 songs that didnt make it onto out other albums or whateva.

    They get made fun of a lot in the punk community but i don't care haha. I'm glad there's another lover.

    I haven't listened to much of Wolves in Wolves Clothing, my friend has it though and loves it. They came out with a new album too last Spring, its not bad, still not as good as the other stuff.

    45 or 46 Songs is a damn good CD, I love all the b-sides lol.

    And me too, I'm glad there is another person out there that loves NOFX besides my brother and my friends [​IMG], My favorite album is either Punk In Drublic or So Long And Thanks For All The Shoes. You?

    i LOVE NoFX.

    So Long & Punk In are two amazing albums.
    By the way: Wolf In Wolves Clothing is a great album.

    I lost interest around Pump Up The Valuum was released, cause that album just blew. But a buddy had me listen to War On Errorism and it was decent. And i started listening to their old work again.

    Oh, and find The Decline right now. It's a single. It's 15 minutes long, and its fuck EPIC.

    I also have their latest EP Cokie The Clown, but i haven't listened yet and their latest Full Length (Coaster) is just that... don't bother lol.

    Mmmm, might have to put some Noffix into my ears right now... :goodolepunk:

    EDIT: Oh, and I Heard They Suck Live and Still Suck Live are fantastic live albums [​IMG]

    Yay WildWon!!!

    Yeah definitely So Long, and PID are there best albums by far!

    I didn't really mind Pump Up The Valuum too much, War on Errorism was pretty good too, She Nubs is where its at [​IMG]. As for The Decline, its absolutely amazing, one the greatest pieces of music I have ever listened too! I know mostly all of it on drums, its tough shit [​IMG]

    I haven't listened to any of the new stuff really, I hope its good.

    The live ablums were pretty also, not too much of a fan of live albums though

    Not just the drums. One of the things i LOVE about Nofx is that they're all so talented. Speed, precision and great writing. And i'm an absolute sucker for constant background vocals, and they use it in spades. (Same with why i love Jimmy Eat World [​IMG])

    Find Wolf In Wolves Clothing asap. You'll love it. The more i think about it, they've gone back to Punk & So Long styles. And they're cocky as hell... you'll understand with the first track and you'll applaud at the end of it. Which then leads right into the 2nd track which is an anti-government anthem. USA-Holes... so good.

    Yeah dude, they are one of my favorites! I've always loved them!

    Those are all great songs, and see Lori Meyers, I've never really liked too much [​IMG] I guess I don't really like the girl singing that much. I'll have to listen to it again.

    Well, it's all matter of taste.....I never liked Kim Shattuck's music (she's the one singing in the second part of the song) much, but it really gets to me in this song..

    I think that overall, my favorite album would be Ribbed, tho I didn't like Wolves in Wolves Clothing, I like the newest album (Coaster), I also like the Pump up the Valuum..

    Overall, they are really great band, with insane drummer!

    EDIT: and just as you say, you don't like Lori Meyers that much, I'm not much of a "Decline liker" [​IMG] It really is one of the best songs ever written, I just don't like songs over two and a half, three minutes [​IMG]
    Hahaha, but that's just me...

    You know, I actually listened to it again while riding on the cheesewagon yesterday (the bus) and I actually didn't really mind it at all [​IMG] I guess my tastes of changed since I first listened to it.

    I've never really listened to their older albums like Ribbed too much because they seem to be a little sloppy and bad in production lolz, I usually pick em up with Punk In Drublic. I still have to listen to the 2 newest albums too [​IMG].

    And yeah, their drummer is redonkulous, I wish I could keep up with him most of the time. Hes pretty dope.

    I can also hear where your coming from with the Decline, I don't really like their songs that are longer either, but there is something about the Decline that just keeps me listening lol

    See [​IMG]
    I noticed that my test changed over years as well...However, I don't think it was for the "good" [​IMG]

    And you're right there, they do sound a bit sloppy on their first albums and production is nowhere near good as the later albums, however I absolutely love Maximum Rock'n'Roll, Liberal Animation and Ribbed..Not to mention that S&M Airlines has one of the best covers ever [​IMG]
    I dig that dirty, raw sound! [​IMG]

    EDIT: And Decline sounds that great because it's not boring, message is really something to think about, and it sounds like it's actually few different songs without pause in between, and with the same subject!
    True work of art!

    I shall see your S&M Airlines and raise you one Heavy Petting Zoo.

    (while S&M Airlines is hot, HPZ is one of the funniest, raw, "i can't believe they did that" cover designs I've ever seen. I mean, it's no Nashville Pussy, but still [​IMG])

    Won't argue on that! [​IMG]

    You are right.. Heavy Petting Zoo has that shock value, and those two would be my favorite NoFX covers!

    Haha why what happened to your tastes? lol

    Maximum Rock'n'Roll was alright. I did really love their first demo, (which is one there) Hold It Back is a great song.

    And yeah, Idk, I just don't like the sloppyness of the first albums, its too much for me lol, there are still great songs on it like Green Corn and such. S&M Airlines is one of the best covers I will agree with you, and same with Heavy Petting Zoo. I didn't notice how fucked up it was until I just saw it again xD

    The Decline is an amazing piece of music, one of my favs. I plan on doing a cover of it once the Spring comes along lol its a tough one
