I'm sure you've all been waiting for the next installment of Angry's iPod. Unfortunately, Mike has been busy with what he calls "real life", so I have decided to update the iPod, at least for the time being. So here is my version, as in what I have been listening to on my new (used) car's 6 disc cd player.
If you claim to like punk music and don't know who NOFX are, then stop reading this and go back to listening to your My Chemical Romance and please do us a favor, and never read our site again.
If you're still reading, congratulations, you have some taste...at least in music, I mean you ARE reading this site.
NOFX celebrates their 25th anniversary this year and are still putting out great music. Their latest release, Coaster, harkens back to their old-school roots. But one album which has been getting regular play on my new-old car's 6-disc player is They've Actually Gotten Worse Live!
With a catalog of over 300 songs, you think it would easy to pick enough to fill up an album. But in true punk fashion, Fat Mike (no relation to Angry Mike), Eric Melvin, El Hefe, and Erik Sandin play a mixture of classics, new versions of old songs and rare songs, all with witty and hilarious commentary between songs. If you loved, I Heard They Suck Live, you will not be disappointed with their second live album.
Some of the greatest points of the album (IMHO) include "You're Wrong", "New Happy Birthday Song?", and "We March To the Beat of Indifferent Drum" as well as El Hefe feeling sorry for a girl who show her tits and Fat Mike's story about his friend OD'ing on the golf course earlier in the day.
If you love punk music, you need to get this album. No one can capture the feeling of a being at a live show like NOFX. From someone who has about 5% recollection of the last NOFX show I went to, I can only hope it was as good as this album is.
