"Hi, we're NOFX, and we have a Hating Bush problem."
"Hi, NOFX. Welcome to the meeting."
These guys are just fucking addicted to hating Bush. They can't get enough of it! Their newest full-length is a wacky, zany, carnival of Hatin' Bush fun. The posters that Fat Wreck Chords sent my record store to promote "The War On Errorism" portray a big cartoon of Bush painted up as a clown holding balloons, with the caption: "Somewhere in Texas, A Village Is Being Deprived Of Its Idiot."
At this point in time (shit, or a year ago even), is there a single NOFX fan in the world who is unsure as to how the band feels about our current President? Does Fat Mike worry that he's not getting his message across clearly enough? Does he lie awake at night, brainstorming newer and better ways to express his burning, seething, hot hot hatred for George W.?
I wonder, because THE POINT HAS BEEN DRIVEN FAR ENOUGH INTO MY BRAIN THAT I DON'T THINK I COULD EVER POSSIBLY MAKE THE MISTAKE OF THINKING THAT NOFX APPROVES OF A SINGLE THING GEORGE W. BUSH HAS DONE OR WILL EVER DO, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF DYING.
It's like... okay, Fat Mike, guys, we get the goddamn message.
Give us more lesbian songs, or just shut the fuck up. Or don't. Whatever. We know you're punk, you're superpunk. You're mega-ultra-3rd-degree-power-punk to the triple-x max X-Treme. You're so, so punk. We get it. You're punk. You = Punk.
