8. Wolves In Wolves’ Clothing (2006)

“There are some melodies on Wolves that I can hum along to. And after enough listens, I’ll have the words in my head. And then one day I’ll find myself humming a song or two, and I’ll go back and listen to it. And that’s good. Because in the end, it’s just more NoFX, and that’s really not all that bad of a thing.”

7. Ribbed (1991)

“The opening three tracks (“Green Corn,” “The Moron Brothers,” and “Showerdays”) kick this record off ferociously and fearlessly… and if you don’t love that blistering trio, you’re very likely a weak excuse for a NOFX fan. Either that, or you’re just too young to know any better. Beware, the opening riff of “Showerdays” will violate you like a tornado and is not for the common poppy-punky power-chord strumming Green Day fan. There is some really rippin’ riffage all over this album.”

6. White Trash, Two Heebs And A Bean (1992)

” Every track is fantastic, and some of them are quite different. Hang on, I’ve just realised, not EVERY song is fantastic – Buggly Eyes is a bit, well, stupid. The subject of the song is slightly funny the first time you hear it, but gets more ridiculous with every listen. Perhaps it would be bearable without the “jazz voice”? I really hate the jazz voice, which also pops up on Straight Edge.”

5. Heavy Petting Zoo (1996)

“This is melodic-punk that is so fashionable nowadays at its very best. All of the guys are talented musically (catch Fat Mike playing trumpet). These set of songs are among the longest the band ever put out. Most of them are clever and funny without resorting to dick jokes and other pieces of misogyny of commercial bands that NOFX paved the way for.”

4. Pump Up The Valuum (2000)

“Songs throughout are very listenable. If there’s a weak point, it’s that NOFX have passed their songwriting prime. The really fast punk songs tend to blend together lately, and some of the ones here sound like excerpts from “The Decline.” But nothing is bad; there’s less filler than on any of their previous albums except “Punk in Drublic.”

3. The War On Errorism (2003)

“NOFX has never failed to deliver a listenable album, and The War On Errorism is no exception. This is a pretty solid punk record with a few tracks that delve into the more experimental side of the genre. A lot of leftist politics, a good deal of the usual NOFX humor, and a collection of catchy songs.”

2. So Long And Thanks For All The Shoes (1997)

“This is undoubtedly one of NOFX’s best albums ever. It is very underrated and definitely deserves a spot on their top three best album put out to date. If you are a true and die hard NOFX fan, this album is a must have no questions asked. You won’t regret getting it. It has some of the best songs ever made and pretty much every single song is very enjoyable and catchy.”

1. Punk In Drublic (1994)

“The sound quality of PUNK IN DRUBLIC is amazing; if you have a good sound system you can’t miss it. The songs are very addictive and sticks I your heads. There is no hardcore here, no noise, no screamo, no metal and no “hard to dig” material. The album was extremely well done and is good from start to finish. Aside from Fat mike’s unique voice and amazing bass playing, the marriage between the 2 guitars of Melvin and Hefe is just gorgeous.”
