    I'm excited. I'm sure no one but me likes them, but I'm intrigued since they don't do interviews really or have music videos and radio play or anything. Yeah, so... uh... fun!

    Oh yeah, it's on now!
     
  2. !!!!!

    It doesnt come on here for another 30 minutes. Bah, I'll just watch the rerun on comedy central.

    wonder what song they'll do?

    Probably a Bush-related one.

    They played Franco-Unamerican, and Conan seemed pretty pissed when he went to thank them. :/

    Weird I always thought Conan was a nice guy. :/
     

  7. With lyrics as extreme left as that, I'm sure alot of people would. It's an alright song otherwise, I guess.

    If they really needed to play a political song, they should of at least done "Idiot Son Of An *******" :D

    Didn't Conan say they're appearing at the Republican National Convention? :confused:

    Not a bad show. Really juicing up the 80's gimmick on the keys...

    Then why did Conan invite them onto his show? I doubt they would have been able to say ******* on Conan's show. Also, their entire album is political. The only reason they are accepting invitations to play in the mainstream now is because of politics.

    What was up with the keyboard guy though? I've never seen him before, he was kinda weird :/

    Yes, what a fool I have been. Now I must commit ritualistic suicide as an example to others. :rollno:

    Yeah they did play a show. There was a riot afterwards, MTV broadcasted both. The Rage show was incredible, a lot of anger.

    Anyways, I though the NOFX spot was pretty good. Fat Mike seemed like he was about to start laughing during the "He likes c*ck but is against homosexuals" line. I liked it.

    Wow, I'm so proud of NOFX. They used to act like they were merely in it for the music, and TV and Radio could "shove it", in the words of Heinz Kerry.

    But whaddya know now, these chubby old wanna be punk louts are going above and beyond to "speak out" against Bush, including playing on Conan's show........I also saw Melvin on Fuse's IMX.....

    Wow, what staunch hearty individuals. I'm sure they influenced many green haired adolescents to buy their latest CD, as well as surprising said adolescent's parents with sudden derogatory comments about Bush, whom they didn't even know was president until NOFX told them so.

    "weak sauce man"

    Bush has inspired a lot of people. I used to think that both Al Gore and Bush would do the same thing no matter which was president. He's definitely inspired a lot of bands too.

    I've never been a fan of NOFX, but I'm gonna check it out when it reruns on Comedy Central.

    Not to get political, but it seems like its been a teen trend lately (or maybe they did it in the ol' days too?) to hate the country and preach "anarchy." At my school especially, though its a conservative town, many of the kids are going around preaching against Bush and saying how much they hate the United States in general, and some kid even set fire to the American flag on campus.
