Review: NOFX

“Regaining Unconsciousness” EP
(Fat Wreck Chords)

As a general rule, bands (or celebrities) are under the misconception that their opinions on politics (the United States’ in particular) are in dire need of being heard. With a few exceptions, they’re wrong. As the saying goes, opinions are like assholes, everyone’s got one. And I’d like to add, nobody wants to hear them. Any idiot can dislike the commander-in-chief. Haven’t political satirists poked fun at every president? Consider this pre-cursor to their self-released full length a shaken fist at the White House. How original. Hey, it’s NOFX though. Who ever took them seriously? The music sounds good, and most people should be capable of forming their own opinions. Punk, because punk pays the bills, with a message for sheep. Yay.
