NOFX

"Possesions never meant anything to me
I'm not crazy
Well that's not true, I've got a bed, and a guitar
And a dog named dog who pisses on my floor
That's right, I've got a floor
So what, so what, so what?"



I must say I'm a little astonished. It was so easy to write about previous bands, but when it comes to write something about my favourite band I feel strange emptiness in my mind. When you talk about something you really like, you want to show everybody why is it so awesome so bad, that sometimes you simply lack of words.


So let's start from basic informations. NOFX was formed in 1985 by Mike Burkett, Eric Melvin and Eric Sandin. In 1991 Aaron Abeyta (El Hefe) joined the band and from that time the band remains unchanged. After writing over 300 songs NOFX is still active.


The best way to describe their music is to say that they play fast, dynamic punk rock. Lyrics are usually sarcastic na witty, though they're not about serious things. You won't find many songs about love in their discography and even if you do, they will be rather ironic.


What I really adore NOFX for is their attitude. On every show, in every song you can feel that these guys are actually just having fun. They don't take serious all those ideas of punk movement, they're just having a good time. And I think that's what kept, and always keeps them together for all these years.
