What do you think the relationship between The Offspring and Nofx is. Considering NOFX is all uber-punk and the Offspring are sort of popular on MTV I wonder what they are like when they are together. I know in the Ignition-Smash eras the offspring actually slept on NOFX's tour bus floor. So they must've been close.

I'm assuming the Offspring have nothing but respect for them. However I'm sure Fat Mike wasn't too happy when the Offspring signed to a major label. NOFX have never come out and said that they hated the Offspring but I've read a few interviews where they crack jokes about the Offspring's fame.

I just think when bands bash other bands like that...after they been friends and shit...its all just jealousy IMO

I think it is a publicity stunt... plus i dont think NOFX is punk... NOFX i think has three good/decent albums.. so long thanks for all the shoes, punk in drublic, and war on errorism.

killboy, NoFX is streight out punk. there's nothing more punk then NoFX

Disagree... i think that they are punk if you consider punk being untalented... they just sing about things that arent heart felt, i have all there cds so go on and use examples, and what i think proved it was seperation of church and skate... that songs just tries hard to be punk and yeah it is a great song but i think the lyrics are bullshit

11-10-2004, 09:20 PM
fuck the lyrics, dude, the instrumentel is completly punk, i mean, the drums (for example) is COMPLETELY punk, i dont know if u know nething bout drums, but the pattern they use is even called punk

11-10-2004, 09:26 PM
no totally i play some drums mostly guitar i am not arguing with the music they are great musicians especially now but i think what they sing about is the untalented part, I think everything i listen is based on emotions which makes the music better, im not talking about emo but i love bands like deviates, cigar, and 1208... I can tell that they are genuine and i dont get that from NoFX... Plus I dont believe brainwashing kids to vote for Kerry is punk i think that it goes against it... punk is about speaking our own minds and not giving a fuck not preaching and they do preach.

i think your right, punk is about not giving a shit about what people say and just do whatever the fuck we want. im not doubting the fact that nofx have horrible lyrics, im just saying that when i listen to nofx (like various other bands) i feel like getting up, burn something down and smash something up.

11-10-2004, 09:31 PM
Yeah i agree maybe i shouldnt be too critical on the lyrics... i guess they affect you a bit differently than me... I do think the new cd is fucking tight though... I love the Idiots and taking over and Anarchy camp... ans Church and State...

11-10-2004, 09:33 PM
so its sattled, nofx rules ass, lyrical or none lyrical, aint matter, their still cool (just for your knowledge, you always burn things and break stuff, im violent, i guess its a part of being a drummer)

11-10-2004, 09:36 PM
yeah i agree i all things settled nofx is badass.. you see how they changed franco unamerican on conan o brien it was hilarious

11-10-2004, 09:37 PM
nah, i didnt catch that

11-10-2004, 09:39 PM
they added a lyric that went
The whole world agrees we need a better president
George bush sucks cock but he hates homosexuals..
something like that they did without telling neone and fat mike was laughing the whole time... i dont think that was the exact ryme but it was close

11-10-2004, 09:40 PM
thats kinda stupid, im a bush fan so.. ne ways, as i said, i dont really pay attantion to the lyrics of nofx

11-27-2004, 08:36 PM

11-27-2004, 08:44 PM
