    "A rock n roll story of epic proportions"

    this book is quite simply epic. not only do you get a great insight into NOFX the band, but you get a history lesson on the LA punk scene, the grittiness of a dangerous time on the am West Coast that have birth to some great music.

    you also get a pretty eye opening look into drug use, it's devestation and consequences.

    This book is naratted by the band themselves which is a lovely added touch.

    you don't need to be a nofx fan, or even a punk fan to enjoy this book - if you have a general interest in music, or just love music biographies, you'll love it

    recommend.

    I have never been a huge nofx fan, but this book is great for anyone who loves the gritty, messed up, and drug and booze fuelled hijinks. It even made me cry a couple times. Amazing

    "nofx the striped back truth, but plugs and all."

    a refreshingly honest reflection of the bands history and their personal battles with drugs family and fetishes.

    great read for those who are interested in the 90s American punk era.

    Story
    "This makes other rock bio's sound like playschool"
    What did you like most about NOFX?

    Its brutal, uncensored honesty peppered with dark humor. The audio book is narrated by the band members themselves, past and present, as well as featuring a plethora of famous cameo's from people involved along the way. You can get much more intense than hearing NOFX's first hand accounts of drugs, death, gangs, sex, murder, road trips, disasters and more straight from the horses mouth!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of NOFX?

    Endless back story of each individual's personal struggles. Too many, too dark and too rediculous to mention


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Only their live albums would be any kind of comparison and this is a tell-all book


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Go for the Audio book, its read out by the band members and people involved in their stories which adds another level of intensity you wont get reading it out yourself. NOFX aren't even close to my favorite band but if you are a fan or at least know what these guys are like on stage, then maybe you are thinking this will be a good funny chaotic read.... you will not be disappointed. One serious warning: I guarantee, after listening to this you will not be able to look at or listen to these guys in the same way again!

    "Liked it up to family death and butt plugs."

    Lost me at butt plugs. Like I can hang for a bit, but it felt like the last 10% of the book was less about NOFX, and more about Mike's sexual lifestyle. Great book up until that point.

    "Loved these stories"

    Since the band (and a couple of friends) read the their own book, it was really engaging when they would tell the stories of the small happenings a events, that lead to NOFX as we know them. Being a fan of the band, this was a treat for me. But, if anything, the tales are fun, scary and put things into perspective with early punk culture. The guys putting out this book had to take courage and some long lost emotional stress. Several parts of this book I feel will stick with me for some time. Just because a few topics hit pretty close to home. A great book for anyone. ...maybe anyone.

    Deep, sad, funny, inspirational, scary, educational, insightful, disgusting, and one of the most addictive books I've listened to yet. If you are a fan of NOFX it is deeply satisfying to hear where they came from and what they've been through. Extremely well written and well spoken. Thanks for sharing guys! Love you! Glad you are all still alive and doing well.

    "A Must for Punk Fans"

    Hands down one of my favorite books ever. This audiobook makes it even better. Hearing the band recount their stories is at times hysterical and other times heart wrenching. If you grew up in the punk scene you will definitely feel a little nostalgic at times too.

    Having been a huge fan of NOFX for many years, I was extremely excited to hear they were releasing an autobiographical style book.
    It does not disappoint. it's so BRUTALLY honest and real, an unflinching account to all the ups and downs of this group of misfits. Listened to it in its entirety in 2 days and I am going for round 2!
    Will shock you, move you and make you laugh. Highly recommended wether you're a fan or not!

    "Fascinating Story - Brilliantly narated"
    Would you consider the audio edition of NOFX to be better than the print version?

    Infinitely - having it read by the guys involved with each member reading their own chapters makes it all the more engaging.


    What other book might you compare NOFX to, and why?

    The narration style is very similar to the Doug Stanhope Book digging up mother In that the people actually involved in the stories are telling them.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    There's many hilarious moments, too many to name.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The chapter after you first here the story of the scumbag friend and what happened to one of the band members girlfriends at his hands. Getting the two versions of the stories, two people's truths with only one of them being the truth, the way the book does this is brilliant.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended for anyone interested in music and road stories, being fans of the band or even punk music is not necessary.
