  • Punk rock pioneers, NOFX, come with a CD for the record books, an 18 minute punk song. It's a great track from start to finish, a definite must have album. I feel I should apologize for the short length of this review, but it's only one track! The CD was released on Fit Mike's label, Fat Wreck Chords.

    I love this song! It really shows how far NOFX has come. Filled with great musicianship and even better lyrics, The Decline has it all. When listening to it, try not to think of it as only one song. It's really like six songs with a couple of slow cool down spots.

    The Decline talks about issues' like the NRA, Christians, and political matters. Now available from Fat Wreck Chords for $8 ppd, and featuring Lars Nylander(Skankin Pickle) on T-bone. The whole song is perfect from start to finish, so I'm giving it a perfect score. This is one of the coolest things I've heard from NOFX and I highly suggest getting your hands on this one!
