As NOFX entered their fourth decade, the group issued a T-shirt bearing the claim that they had been ‘recycling the same music since 1983’. The joke was a good one, although, this time, no true words were spoken in jest. After first emerging in 1983 as one of the worst punk rock bands the world had ever heard, the quartet somehow upped their game to become one of the finest the movement has ever known.
Of course, with a band as supple and powerful as this, there is a level of proficiency beneath which NOFX will not fall. As such, on tracks such as the rollicking Punk Rock Cliché and Fuck Day Six, their second LP of the ’20s is worthy of the company of their better work.
