Welcome students old and new… every Thursday until the sun blazes the Earth, the staff shall pay homage to the most classic indie albums of all time. No countdowns, or top 100 lists, just a weekly gaze into the Music Emissions vault. Let the education begin…

NOFX (pronounced “no ef-ex”) is an American punk rock band that was formed in Los Angeles, California (now based in San Francisco), in 1983. NOFX has released 12 studio full lengths and 15 EPs. The group has independently sold over 6 million records worldwide.

The title was originally going to be White Trash, Two Kikes, And A Spic, tongue in cheek humour relating to the ethnic/religious backgrounds of the band members. However, Melvin’s mother heard the name, she told his grandmother, and she didn’t like the name. She made Melvin feel guilty and so they eventually changed the name to its current title.
