Product Description

Well, here it is - a full 12 song album, each band doing 6 of the other band's songs. With sales in the millions between the two bands, this album is sure to become one of the biggest releases of the year, as well as marking the 20th anniversary of BYO Records.

Amazon.com

The idea of two punk giants fighting it out in the studio was born on the hallowed 7-inch single, but these two summer-tour veterans and Epitaph labelmates have brought it to the modern age on the third installment of BYO's Split Series. Berkeley, California's Rancid bring attitude and tradition to the bill. Old-school oafs NOFX bring humor and frontman Fat Mike, a veritable underground punk legend and karaoke king. Like a medical experiment gone so wrong it's right, together they take on six of each other's songs and the results are riveting--whether it's Rancid mowing through mosh-pit standards like "Moron Brothers" and "Stickin' in My Eye," or NOFX finding the funny side of the cod-reggae Clash tribute "Radio" and triumphantly thrashing "Corazon de Oro." --Aidin Vaziri

Some of the people reviewing this are being kind of stupid and looking at it wrong. The bands weren't trying to out-do each other or anything. It was all just for fun. Some guy said NOFX ruined the Rancid songs by changing the style too much. THAT WAS THE WHOLE POINT! Of course it's not going to sound like it's "supposed to!" They wanted to do the other's song in their own style. What would be the fun in trying to make it sound the same as the original version? I think they both did a great job.

Personally I liked NOFX's stuff better just because I'm a bigger fan of them. I'm a huge Rancid fan, too, but the vocals on "Don't Call Me White" and "Moron Bros." were kind of annoying. I guess just because Tim and Matt's vocal style doesn't really match up well with Fat Mike's, so it sounds really weird. As for NOFX, I liked all the songs. "Tenderloin" kind of bugged me because at first I didn't even recognize it until he started singing the chorus, but it was an okay cover. "Antennas" was awesome, and so was "Corozon De Oro." Their version of "Radio" was hilarious. I've talked to Rancid fans that hated that, but it's pretty obvious that it's a joke, especially if they saw them play it live at Warped Tour in 2002. They brought out a few rastafarians to play keyboard for it. It was great.

Best tracks are NOFX - "Olympia, WA" and Rancid - "Stickin In My Eye" or "The Brews," I can't decide.

Overall it's a cool buy, but before getting this I'd probably suggest owning most, if not all, of the NOFX and Rancid albums so you recognize the songs. It'll be cooler that way.

I am a fan of both bands, thus I was excited to learn that this record existed. The issue that I have is that the first record I received did not play, but just skipped on my turntable. I decided to give it another shot and exchange the item. When I received the second record it did the same thing. On closer inspection while the record was on the turntable you could tell that it was warped. I had to return the second record as well and just get my money back. Guess I will just have to buy the cd. Oh well.

I am a huge fan of both of these bands, I own every single one of both of their albums, and this is a must-have album for anybody who is a fan of either or both of these bands. There is no reason to be trying to pick which band did a better job, they both do an amazing job, and this album is just so much damn fun to listen to.

Nofx's versions of Olympia, Antennas, and Corozon de Oro are all flawlessly done! Olympia sounds a lot like the Rancid version but does have a slightly different feel, but is done perfectly. Nofx change up Antennas a bit, mainly speeding it up, and even adding their own ending to the song, which is really cool! Corozon de Oro is changed a lot from the Rancid version, it is sped up, and is honestly more fun than the Rancid version, though the Rancid version has a lot more soul! Nofx's version of Radio is cool, they basically turn Radio into a complete reggae song with El Hefe on vocals. I am the One and Tenderloin are both very well done as well, though they sound mostly similar to the Rancid versions with a few added parts and changed basslines and guitar solos. I am the One is particularly cool with Fat Mike doing a great job on the bass despite his always saying he is a crap bass player, he is obviously a very good bass player.

My favorite Rancid cuts are probably Brews, Bob, and Vanilla Sex. Though I really love all 6 of their covers. I think Rancid definitely chose better Nofx songs to cover than Nofx did in their selection. Bob is an absolutely amazing cover, I almost like it more than the original because I like the more straight ahead punk rock feel of Rancid's version more than the Nofx ska version, but it's an sick song in either form.

I happen to be a bigger fan of NOFX than I am of Racid, but I've got to tip my hat to Rancid because I think they did a better job.
I thought that NOFX could've chose better Rancid songs to cover, but their version of Olympia WA was almost better than the original.
Now Rancid chose some great songs and did them well. Their versions of Don't Call Me White and Brews is excellent and their version of Vanilla Sex is classic.
Don't pass this one by. It's more than a novelty.

What a good idea! Worth owning for the novalty alone. Not much I can say about it that you don't know. Nofx covers Rancid and the other way around. Personally I liked Rancids covers better, souped up bass lines, nicer guitar work, plus Lars snarling, Tim mumbleing, plus Matt singing "Don't call me white" made be chuckle a little the first time I heard it. Nofx holds their own though to. The 'fat albertish' "hey hey heys!" on "I'm the one" is funny. Though they did turn some of the songs into pop, especially "Antennas" it's still very enjoyable. The cover of "Radio" is great and it works so well is almost has the sound and feel of one of a Nofx song. I kind of wish they would have added a few more songs, maybe more of the same or a few new, unrealesed songs or something like that. Still worth owning anyway.
