Day 59: “All Outta Angst” – NOFX

!!!ITALIANO!!!

In activity since 1983, it seems like today’s band never sets. And the song we suggest you today transmits all their energy.

Maybe the best work of one of the most famous and appreciated nineties punk rock band, the album from which the song choosen for today comes, So Long and Thanks for All the Shoes (1997), shows some differences from first NOFX works; in fact at the beginning they were mainly a hardcore punk band, while in this album we can see how they try to explore new music genres, like ska, which characterizes today’s song. So 16 tracks between punk and ska, with a Fat Mike in top shape and El Hefe between second guitar and trumpet.

It is funny the origin of the album’s title, which refers to all the shoes thrown to the band during their live performances, and makes also reference to the noted expression “so long, and thanks for all the fish” Douglas Adams‘s novels, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Have a good listen!

All Outta Angst – NOFX

I’m not insane, I’m not bummed out
I got no one to blame, nothing to change
I got no evil to fight

One thing’s for sure, I’m all outta angst
Society don’t bother me
And there’s something wrong with that

So I’m off to Pakistan, learn the laws of Islam
Fundamentalism, forget that rock ‘n’ roll
No cigarette, no drink, in fact
It’s difficult to think about getting laid
When you don’t even get to see her face
I’m not insane

I’m not insane, I’m not liquored up
I got nothing to do, nothing to lose
I got no place to call home

One thing’s for sure, I’m all outta angst
Society don’t bother me,
There’s something wrong with that

Next stop Mongolia
Don’t get to golf or fuck or bowl with ya
Throw out that handicap
No stepping out, till spring, in fact it’s
Difficult to sing when it’s 20 below
And that’s during the day
I’m not insane
I’m not insane
I’m not insane
