Theme From A NOFX Album
Theme From A NOFX Album

This song came on while I was driving with my roommate the other day. In 2000-2001 we were young high school kids that would blare NOFX out of our cars as we drove to and from school. Today we’re 31 years old. Our backs, joints, and ears don’t work as well as they once did, and when this song came on my roommate looked at me and said “Dude, this is us now. We can actually relate to this song, we’re over 30!” It’s a fantastic view to see, and I’m happy we made it here. I’m also a little bummed out that punk rock didn’t pay the bills like I hoped it would.

Junerecordaday: Day 5 - An Album From High SchoolNOFX - ‘Pump Up The Valium’ (2000) I’m choosing this on based on how scratched, broken and generally fucked up my CD versions of these albums are. Back in my teenage years I would always have about 5 CDs on my person at any given time, along with my trusty disc-man, and for a good few years there was always a NOFX album in the mix. I could have chosen any of thier albums, really, but this one was a favorite and gives me a chance to show off the beautiful blue vinyl.
