- Punk in Drublic
The greatest punk album ever. Those
are the only things a punk rocker needs to know about NOFX's
seventh release, Punk in Drublic. This album
has so many classic numbers on it I wouldn't know where to
begin, except from the start.
Over 15 years of playing underground
punk, NOFX has released ten albums in their career.
The best by far is Punk in Drublic. I'm going
to review each song seperately, because each song is a different
diamond on the record.
Fast paced, classic song. Fat Mike's lyrics in this
songs are supurb. Anyone denying this as "bad ass"
will be shot.
LEAVE IT ALONE:
NOFX's hit. Well sorta-hit. NOFX never releases videos on
MTV nor do they want to be played on commercial radio stations.
This is the song Epitaph Records filmed a video for but NOFX
it over to MTV. If you'd like to see this video go to
www.epitaph.com or buy
the NOFX home video, Ten Years of Fuckin Up.
Immediately preceeding "Leave It Alone", "Dig"
is one of the low points on the album. Every time I
listen to "Leave It Alone" however, "Dig"
sort of is a necessity after it.
Another classic song! Pure punk rock by the mohawk full.
"The Cause" is all about what we punkers stand for,
so just leave us alone.
DON'T CALL ME WHITE:
NOFX's other sorta-hit. I'm not sure if they ever filmed this
one but they did release a single with the track "Drugs
are Good" on the flip. Above average song (like
all the others), and a friend of mine who likes NOFX, has
to hear this song all the time.
MY HEART IS YEARNING:
Best joke song NOFX has ever done. Caribbean music with hilarious
lyrics. I don't wanna give it away.
Yet another classic punk song! "How did the cat
get so fat?" I don't know, ask Fat Mike. Not written
by NOFX, but stolen from a friend of there's original acoustic
number. NOFX turned into something
cool. By the way, he wrote the song for NOFX as a present.
Now before I talk about the Jewish-Nazi song, I better let
you know that this is the definitive NOFX song. The
one that stands out high above all the rest. "The Brews"
(oi oi) is the greatest punk song in the history of mankind.
Ask anyone who likes NOFX.
THE QUASS/DYING DEGREE:
"Dying Degree" is your average NOFX song. After
the impact of how extremely awesome "The Brews"
is you need something to calm down.
Another average NOFX song (remember the average NOFX song
is usually about 2 times greater than any other punk songs).
Here's a big classic song. It's more of a story-song,
but it has some really tight lyrics and really kick ass music.
JEFF WEARS BIRKENSTOCKS:
This song is unbelievably great in it's own special way. There
seems to be a big debate between punkers between this song
and The Brews for best NOFX song. Don't know why. It's
funny I thought, but not as great as The Brews.
Just a shade over a minute, this song relates to all the most
famous punk rockers and even my birth place Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Sometimes I think this song was written for me. But
then I laugh and dye my hair blue.
Worst song on the record. But still a good song.
Kick ass. Half slow-acoustic ska-type riff and the other half
power punk. Reeko kicks more ass then we'll ever know because
we can't relate to how cool this song really is. Most
people diss it, but there are a few who see the beauty in
Best chill song in the world. I love the lyrics to this song.
I think I've rambled long enough anyway.
