What does NOFX stand for?

NOFX doesn't stand for shit. We just kinda ripped off the name from an old Boston band Negative FX. OK. . .Fat Mike.

Hey I saw You guys (NOFX) live at warped tour and I was wondering why did you have to make fun of The Devil Wears Prada? Your music was great just when you stopped and told a racist joke and kept going wasn't that great.

We had to make fun of them be cause they are so terrible, and they never fought back, which only made it worse.

Hi guys! I know u heard this question several times but we want an honest answer, not like the one u gave to the other guy. Why uíre making TV series and selling them? We do not disserve an honest answer, BUT WE WANT IT ANYWAY. Good bye fags! P.S: my English sucks, I know. P.S 2: If u don't answer, well, I'm telling Tim.

Well we made a TV series becasue our documntary was getting to long and to good, and Fuse agreed to put it on their station. as far as selling it, we have not actually sold it yet, more like gave it. But now as of March 17th we will be selling it on DVD with 2 hours of extra footage, mostly of me. its out on Fat so get it!

Do you at least know someting about my country CHILE, or you are happy knowing a little bit of california and maybe some curiosity about Australia?

so.. my question is: Which drumset have you got, which drumhardware and which crymbals ? you need a really fast foot pedal or ? i've got a pearl eliminator foot machine i think thar should be fast enough ;) did you train your foot to get that fast ? please say me some practice to get faster!

I have an orange county drums and percussion drum set, mapex hardware, zildjain cymbles and a tama pedal. your pearl pedal is a good one, i used to play one. so for going fast you have to stay relaxed and keep your ankle relaxed is really important. i dont really have any drills for you, but start of slow and work your way up to a speed you want to play at. thanks for the question, Erik a.k.a. smelly

does it ever get to the point where you just hate to play music or being in nofx just pays the bills, like if you could do something else and make the same living you would do that instead i have heard the song 60% and i'm pretty sure i understand it but i guess what i'm really asking is if that is seriously how it is or are there times that you still give 200% and enjoy it and really work hard to put something really good out p.s. i am fully aware that i might not get an honest answer and i am a sap thanks

You want to hear me to complain? For me, playing live, making records and just being with my friends in NOFX never gets tedious. I always give my best -I mean- my drunk and sloppy best. It's other parts of being in the band that gets tedious, like travelling on airplanes for hours amd hours day after day, dealing with immigration and customs officials in other countries, having to shit something bad I ate that's gonna make my ass hurt for the rest of the day, and always being made aware of NOFX fan's expectations. As much as I try these things can not be separated. Playing a fun show makes most of these things go away, so If I can remind myself, I take whatever's bothering me and try to work it during the show. _Melvin

My un-named buddy says you stayed at his house in the tri-cities(Christ on a crutch house) many many years ago. He claims one of you left crabs in the bathroom. Which one of you did it?

It could not have been me, after Boise, Idaho in 1986 or 87 I shaved my crotch hair and have kept it shorn ever since. Oh, wait, you are in Washington, that would have been before I shaved it. It could have been any of us. That was a bad year. _Melvin

Oh hey guys! how its possible to remember all the cords and lyrics.. coz we wasnt playing for 3 months (bills for our place) d:D and when we finally got new one, we were not able to play any of our songs.. dont tell me to write them down.. email me please i need to talk in private dudes.. dudeeeees!

Did you ever play the game tetris? The chords fit together just right. Sometimes I'll mess up if I start playing one of our songs in a different position on the neck, I get lost and can't find where I am. It's a gift, really. Like OCD, or ADD or Herpes. _Melvin

when you guys were unsigned did you have the feeling that you would never get signed and remain bad forever, and never go anywhere?

I didn't really care. There were not many options available to punk rock bands at the time we started. All we got was touring in a van and making shitty sounding records or nothing at all. And that was fine. _Melvin

hi fats and melvin i just wanted to know what it was like growin up in la being jewish i grew up in bankstown were half the population is muslim half of that half are great but the other half were just angry anyway i live near cooly now and cant wait to see ya and ill see ya at luna park to.

Growing up Jewish in LA was fine, there weren't many strict or orthodox or fundamentalist religious people around the city, at least not that I saw. It seems like people were more tolerent because most people's beliefs left room for other people to believe in other things. So it was easier to get along. _Melvin

I love the way ya guys move on stage.Do you inspire yourselfs to some other artist or did you just kinda create your own style during the years?

I don't know how I got to what ever it is that I do onstage now. I guess I started moving around onstage and jumping around after seeing bands like Ill Repute and Bad Brains. _Melvin

I am the mother of 3 boys now in their late twenties who blasted my house out with NOFX for so many years that I actually began to enjoy your music.What they don't know is that I often rocked around my lounge on a Friday night after a few wines cranking up the stereo whilst having a party on my own! Now I'm 52 years old and still put on Prunk in Dublic (my favourite) and dance like crazy! Imagine my delight to learn you're coming to New Zealand.Sadly,none of my girlfriends appreciate your music so I will have to forgo the chance to see you live.Too shameful going on my own !! Anyway,just want to let you know that your music always makes me think of my sons,how they introduced me to it and how I still love it.Have a fantastic tour downunder guys!!!

I take me a few wines (actually vodka or tequila) as well before we go onstage. Thanks for the letter, y'know we're all 40 now, except Hefe is 41. Oh yeah, NZ was great, good shows, nice people, good food, good drinks. _Melvin
