NOFX Premiere “Fuck Euphemism” Lyric Video

NOFX have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Fuck Euphemism.” This track is from the band’s new album “Single Album,“ which will be released on February 26.

Fat Mike commented:

“We had to make a lyric video for this song because these might be my favorite lyrics I’ve ever written. Oh, what fun it is to write a song that’s completely PC, but sure as hell sounds like it isn’t!”

He also added the following during an interview with Spin:

“I consider myself queer and part of it, so I can sing a song like this. I live a BDSM lifestyle and I’m a crossdresser, so it did bother me when people were calling me a cis male. I like the whole thing of defining yourself using your own terms, because I’m a punk rocker first, and then a submissive crossdressing male. The transgender community and the gay community are taking a stance on how we want to be known, and I’m going to be known as a certain way.”

NOFX Team Up With Avenged Sevenfold For New Song “Linewleum”

NOFX have teamed up with Avenged Sevenfold for a new song titled “Linewleum.” You can find an official video for that track below. With this news, NOFX have also announced that their new album “Single Album“ will be released on February 26.

NOFX’s Fat Mike said the following about the new song:

“I have no idea why ‘Linoleum‘ is THE NOFX song that is covered by so many bands, while other NOFX songs get hardly any attention. ‘Linoleum‘ wasn’t a single; it had no video; it got no radio play, and most importantly, it didn’t even have a chorus!!! All popular songs have choruses! WTF!

So, one night I stayed up till 4:00 am checking out all the different versions on YouTube. Watching hundreds of bands from over 28 countries (mostly Indonesia) doing ‘Linoleum‘ was a humbling experience for me. So I decided to write a song that was a shout-out to all those people that learned those four chords and remembered the non-rhyming lyrics.

Then I asked the biggest of all the bands (Avenged Sevenfold) to play some leads on the song. Then M Shadows suggested we do a video together. Then I figured I should put all of the bands in the video. Well, I couldn’t fit all the bands, but I picked a bunch of cool ones! A song about not playing a song that’s not a hit song with a video about other bands covering the song! This is why I love punk rock and writing punk songs. Rules out the door!”

He also added the following about the new record, which was originally going to be a double album until the band’s plans were derailed by the coronavirus pandemic:

“When you write a double album, you write differently. I was writing really different songs, and some fun songs, but you have to make a double album interesting enough to listen to the whole way. I wanted to make a perfect double album, and I didn’t accomplish that. So I decided to just make a single album, hence the title.”

01. “The Big Drag”
02. “I Love You More Than I Hate Me”
03. “Fuck Euphemism”

August Burns Red & Silverstein’s Shane Told Share Quarantine Cover Of NOFX’s “Linoleum”

August Burns Red and Silverstein‘s Shane Told have shared a quarantine cover of NOFX‘s “Linoleum.“ You can check that out below:

August Burns Red’s JB Brubaker commented:

“ABR covered ‘Linoleum‘ by NOFX on a 7″ we did in 2009. We busted it out on tour periodically over the years. This past summer, while touring with Silverstein, we played it semi-regularly with Shane Told handling the vocals. While we were all stuck at home in isolation, we thought it would be fun to put together a quarantine version of ‘Linoleum‘ that featured Shane.

We each recorded our own parts at home and our sound engineer Chris Pollock mixed the audio together. Then, we had our touring photographer, Ray Duker, edit all the videos together. This was a fun project for us to put together, and we hope you enjoy it.”
