NOFX is an EP by the American punk rock band NOFX, released August 2, 2011, through Fat Wreck Chords and consisting almost entirely of cover versions of hardcore punk songs. The idea for the EP was originally announced in 2009—before the release of the group's eleventh studio album Coaster—and was originally announced to be released exclusively as a 10" vinyl record.[3][4] The EP was also made available in 7", 12", and picture disc formats, all containing the same track listing.[5]

Track listingEdit

The EP features eight cover versions of songs that were originally written by "rather obscure American hardcore bands" from the 1980s.[6] The album's packaging does not list any song titles or writing credits. In various interviews, NOFX frontman Fat Mike suggested that the album would include songs by Necros, Social Unrest, Stretch Marks, and Rebel Truth.[6][7][8] One of the songs is an original NOFX composition.[9]
