Welcome to Tattoodo's Punk Rock Week! We're celebrating everything punk this week — from some scary dudes in New Jersey to heartbroken nerds from SoCal, and everything in between. We bitched about how being a NOFX fan used to be fun and weird, but now it's just problematic. And what would Punk Rock Week be without a little something about The Ramones.
The band then moved up to San Francisco and followed up “Unfun” with two more now-classic lps, “Bivouac” and the Steve Albini-produced “24 Hour Revenge Therapy,” the latter of which landed them a spot opening for Nirvana on tour. This attracted a slew of major label attention, and Jawbreaker signed to Geffen Records. This move saw their punk fan base turn their backs on the band, as they had committed the ultimate sin – selling out.
So, there you have the story of Jawbreaker – and some sick Jawbreaker tattoos. And that would have been the end of it, but then Riot Fest offered them a gazillion dollars and now they’re a band again. And that’s fine. Let Jawbreaker get paid. The YouTube videos of their surprise sets sound good enough for us. Not good enough to go to Riot Fest though. Because we’re true punks.
