Absolutely loved it!! It's like Eric Melvin touched my souls, Smelly Almost brought me to tears, El Jefe made think about my own Mexican family growing up and fat Mike mad me laugh and think about my own vices. Jello and Tommy were great and sincere in there readings. I Fucking love this book and it makes me appreciate NOFX even more. Thank you for both guys, you all did great reading your parts!!
Deep, sad, funny, inspirational, scary, educational, insightful, disgusting, and one of the most addictive books I've listened to yet. If you are a fan of NOFX it is deeply satisfying to hear where they came from and what they've been through. Extremely well written and well spoken. Thanks for sharing guys! Love you! Glad you are all still alive and doing well.
I read the book right when it came out, just after getting it signed by the band at a weird coffee place in DC. While the pictures are (obviously) not visible here, the band makes up for that by adding in other pieces that could only be conveyed audibly. They also make small changes so that the text applies to listening to the book rather than reading it. It was just as fantastic and revealing the second time around. Thanks for writing this, guys, it's one of the best books I've read.
If you are a NOFX fan this book is amazing!! It's fun to know what the band was really going through all those years when I was just a fan listening and trying to copy smellys drumming style! Didn't expect the bands individual lives to be so sad but hey life is life and it doesn't care how rich and or famous you are... great insight to an amazing band!
I listened to this entire book piece by piece while sitting upon the porcelain throne. Great read. The fellas did an exceptional job at composing their story's. I laughed, I cried, I pooped.
I couldn't stop listening...action packed, sad, hilarious. discusting, agonizing, frustrating, etc. Every emotion imaginable. It was very well written, gotta hand it to that Jeff guy.

"fantastic and hard hitting"
Brilliant book. made me look at my own life. Funny as hell also. Worth every penny. The lads can party
"Everything I hoped it would be"
Honest. Deep. Disturbing. It goes a long way in explaining my favorite punk band. Aye.
Having been a huge fan of NOFX for many years, I was extremely excited to hear they were releasing an autobiographical style book.
It does not disappoint. it's so BRUTALLY honest and real, an unflinching account to all the ups and downs of this group of misfits. Listened to it in its entirety in 2 days and I am going for round 2!
Will shock you, move you and make you laugh. Highly recommended wether you're a fan or not!
"Rollercoaster of an audiobook!"
I thought I was going to get done silly stories and gross out stories. You get that but so much more. Fantastic well read book.
One of the most amazing books I've listened to. My favourite band my favourite book!
"Hilarious & Heartbreaking"
Whether you're a NOFX fan or not, this is essential listening. At times a very difficult listen, especially when confronted with Smelly's unflinching tales of heroin addiction but throughout it all its read with the band's unique comedic approach to life. It's completely no holds barred and no subjects are taboo, it's a fascinating insight into the DIY punk ethics that NOFX have stayed true to from the start. Highly recommended.
Amazingly well written book! Love every part of it!Finally got to learn where the lyrics to my fav songs come from.
Read the book first and then felt I needed to hear this. Great stories told by great people. Nothing would surprise me about the band now!
"NOFX souls bared"
Brutally honest, thought provoking, bitter sweet and funny. Laughed out loud and shed a tear.
A must listen for fans and non fans alike.
