Welcome to Tattoodo's Punk Rock Week! We're celebrating everything punk this week — fromsome scary dudes in New Jersey to heartbroken nerds from SoCal, and everything in between. And what would Punk Rock Week be without a little something about The Ramones. Now, one of our writers ruminates about growing up as a hardcore NOFX fan and how it's a little problematic as an adult.
Here’s a quick lowdown on the band. NOFX started in 1983, just like me. And neither of us have stopped since. Here is a further list of parallels between my life and the career of NOFX: Our early years were both rough. We both peaked in 1995. We both like Bad Religion. Germans love to insult us. We both own our own record labels. I could go on forever here, it’s uncanny.
Don’t those NOFX tattoos make you wish it were 1995 all over again? The Clinton years were a fucking rager, to be sure, and we here at Tattoodo all want to live them forever.
