2000 is (not) the year of NOFX! But don't listen to the hype; listen to the record. Pump Up The Valuum is more clever, more irreverent and more crude than NOFX has ever been: and hot on the heels of the unprecedented The Decline, an amazing 18 minute punk-a-thon, NOFX come slamming back with 14 instant classics (in about 32 minutes).

Pump Up The Valuum combines some of NOFX's ... Read more in Amazon's NOFX Store

Product Description

Incredibly, a full 20 years after their formation, NOFX are still possessed by the spirit of punky rebellion. And very proud of it they are, too. Several of the tracks on War on Errorism name-check the great punk bands of the past, and NOFX are happy to remain true to their codes of ethics. This album, it is made very clear, is real punk, not like the new bratty variety, obsessed with guzzling beer and ogling women. Indeed, so keen are NOFX (the seminal punk comedians) to distance themselves from today's mindless frat-punk that they've made serious efforts to embrace politics in an adult fashion. George Bush is attacked with vigour, as are imperialists, warmongers and greedy corporate directors, while listeners are urged to fight the apathy that keeps the masses in thrall to corrupt government and business. Their Web site,, is proof positive that their words are not empty. But no NOFX album could stay serious for long. Their heady mix of punk, pop and ska demands a light-hearted approach and "She's Nubs", the tale of a limb-less punk girl, and "Mattersville", about a community of pensionable punks, are blasts of fun. Musical and world events have forced NOFX to mature, and they're all the better for it. --Dominic Wills

4.0 out of 5 stars Nofx get serious 6 May 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First of all I'd like to say that I don't give many albums five stars, mainly because I think a record has to be something really special to be given top marks. Having said that, "War on Errorism" is one damn fine record and it's highlights are as good as anything the band have recorded.
The first thing that grabs the attention is the more serious content of the lyrics. The anger at the political apathy of much of the US population snaps and snarls out of tracks like "Idiots are Taking Over". Fat Mike and the boys also seem pretty annoyed with the pop-punk explosion, we all know the bands concerned, and have a few things to say about that. Don't worry though, there is still some light relief on tracks like "She's Nubs", about a girl with no arms and legs, and "Mattersville" - I'm gonna buy a house there when I retire.
What's the music like then? In a word - fantastic. The driving, punchy Nofx attack is there, taking no prisoners. They keep things interesting though, the beautiful ska of "Anarchy Camp" being the best example of this. Very little filler, just like on every other Nofx album.
To sum up, if you're a Nofx fan then you're gonna get hold of this album, whatever I say. If you're not - take a chance and buy it. I haven't been disappointed with a Nofx album yet, and this release is up there with their best.

War on Errorism proves that NOFX are a punk band that choose not to regurgitate what made them appealing in the first place, but continue to push their ideas and music forwards like all great bands should.
Despite the airwaves sounding clogged up with radio friendly pop-punk rubbish, War on Errorism sets them apart from that scene, i'm sure, even for those whove never heard NOFX before. Its a fresh, clever album with the perfect balance of humour and seriousness. Classic punk tunes (shes nubs) are mixed with more ambitious diverse melodies (franco un-american), and relevent topical lyrics (idiots are taking over) are backed up by less sincere but equally cool stories (13 stitches).
I've hyped this album enough already, if you want to hear something other than pseudo punk for 10 year olds or uninventive bands redoing tunes of days gone by, get this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars . 2 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
have always been a bit unsold on nofx, seen them live and they are awesome but still dont tick all the boxes. saying that they for me are still in the top three of all the best punk bands from the states and the fact after all this time they can still pump out cracking tunes and make a full blown statement whilst planting their tongue in cheek is a sign that they truely are one of the best punk bands out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars NOFX - War on Errorism Review 16 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album really is a work of art by the NOFX crew, with every track an individual piece of brilliance. In particular I like the tracks Franco-Unamerican and She Nubs, as NOFX mix moral and ethical issues with lighthearted humour and comedy. It is a real must for punk and rock fans alike as there is something for everybody in there. Hope you enjoy the CD, i certainly did!

5.0 out of 5 stars church and skate 8 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
Before I Start I would like to say that the original title for this album was going to "Our Second Best Album" which is a good description. Being a massive NOFX fan I think this album is amazing but at the moment I don't quite think that it is there best. The opening song: "The Seperation between Church and skate" is definitely without a shadow of a doubt the best song on the album. It is amazing. It has a cool intro with Fat Mike talking to some kids about what they want to do today. The drumming is brilliant and has a cool guitar intro. The singing is just pure brilliance. The song gets faster and faster and just sounds so good compared to anything else I've heard. The second song. "The irrationality of rationallity " is very good aswell. I like the subject choice for that and it sounds really good. Its a shame that ends so abruptly. Franco Un-American is a bit slow but still pretty good. Other amazing standouts are mattersville and anarchy camp. Overall a really good album and if i said at the beginning i thought it was their secound best album i've changed my mind whilst writing this. It's their best!
Buy it it is well amazing!!

4.0 out of 5 stars how do they do it? 12 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
NOFX have done it again! Arguably one of the hardest-working and original punk bands around, they still manage to release an album of amazing quality virtually every year, which is no mean feat, and this one is amazing! Although not as good as its predecessors, (especially 'So Long and Thanks For All The Shoes' and 'Punk in Drublic') it is still well worth a listen!
With this slightly eclectic offering come highlights such as 'The Separation of Church and Skate' and 'Anarchy Camp'. NOFX keep to their original recipe of fast punk and slower ska; which may be likened to The Specials and shine in the process.
The only reason I have not given this album 5 stars is because NOFX have given us some better albums such as those mentioned above, but this is nonetheless a first rate album.
If you like your punk, political, powerful and pronto , then buy this album, you won't be disappointed. BUY IT NOW! You know you want it

5.0 out of 5 stars A cause for war worth listening to 20 May 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This isnt the best ever punk album, nor the best ever NOFX album. But this album is pure genius never the less, and is a well worth buy for any punk rock fan. Its not like "Pump up the valuum," yet has certain influences from it in there. Gone are the majority of stupid (yet funny) lyrics, and the album has a more sensible and seroius tone about it all. The ska is back, and many of the songs are fringed with the occasional piece of it, like "So long and thanks for all the shoes." Fat mike and the rest of NOFX have tried to make an attempt at making a politically motivated album, and this works for about the first 4 songs, then the usual songs about women, anarchy and getting older start to creep in, but on the whole, the album has a more grown up feel about it. My favourite song is "The seperation of church and skate," but there isnt really a poor song on the album. Well worth a buy!
