5.0 out of 5 stars So insanely good it's insane, February 27, 2005
This review is from: Pump Up the Valuum (Audio CD)
I've always liked NOFX but I've never actually got a "real" album from them. I have "The Greatest Songs" and "45 or 46 Songs". This album is really really good. It's loud, melodic, catchy, fast, rude, and Fat Mike's vocals sound very good here.

After reading reviews I thought that I'd run into a few real let-down songs but this album never ceases to amaze.

Some people are saying that the band has "sold out". No. Sold out is "American Idiot", going from punk roots to boring slow rock because that's what the mainstream wants.

(almost) Everybody LOVED So long and thanks for all the shoes, so by going back to a more "punk" sound is not selling out because that's not necessarily what the public wanted.

Buy this cd and you won't set it down, ever. I'm proof that this is a great first NOFX album to get.

Are you a f-cking idiot? "Boring slow rock" wasn't the main thing that the mainstream wanted, dumba$$. The only reason you said that was because you're too stupid to think for yourself and too stupid to think of a better word to use than "sellout".
Have you even heard American Idiot anyway? My guess is no.

That's what's really pathetic about so-called "punx" these days. Whenever a band he likes makes an album that he doesn't, he starts whining like a baby and is all "omgz sellout". If NOFX made an album that you didn't like, I'd be the first to bet that you'd label them as "sellouts".

So please, grow up.
