After reading other reviews, I got the impression that this was an album for only the most die-hard NoFX fans. Well I had all their studio albums, and I love em, though I'm not obsessed enough to spend endless nights searching the net for 7"s (though I have done that for other bands). So I thought it would be worth it.
Anyway, having bought the album I was thrilled with it. I mean more of the same, several surprises, a few experiments and a nice little booklet to read, isn't that just what every avid fan wants? Well its what I wanted and it's exactly what I got.
Although there are loadsa songs on each disc, it wraps up in just perfect time, a nice half-an-hour-or-so for each disc.
Faves: Drugs are Good, Eat the Meek (dub mix - not as gd as the original but still gd), Pimps and Hookers, Fun things to F*ck. Well hell, all of em. A couple of downers like Thalomide Child but I'm not so much into their earlier stuff as Fatty's voice wasn't as tuneful, and there's nothing on here i'd say was downright dismal.
So yeah, damn good. Go get it if you like NoFX. If you don't, WHY ARE YOU HERE READING THIS???

This 2 CD album, features previously un-released, b-sides, covers (and new stuff) that was never released by NOFX. 47 tracks of pure NOFX! Some of the songs have featured on the Epitaph Punk-O-Rama CDs (like "We threw gasoline ...") and the cd also contains songs from the 7" only release "Surfer EP". Why on earth a lot of this stuff has not been heard before on a NOFX album we dont know, but now it is and it is here and is definately something a NOFX fan should want espically for the Surfer EP songs! Get it!

No collection of mere cast-offs (but then NOFX seem to have a grasp of irony that is almost unique among Americans), this collection of 47 tracks contains some of the band's finest work. Some songs - such as Murder the Government, Eat the Meek and I'm Telling Tim - crop up in slightly different form on other albums, while others are drawn from B-sides, compilations and the previously 7"-only Surfer and Fuck the Kids EPs. For your money, you get punk, ska, hardcore, serious tracks, hilarious tracks and covers. The many stand-out tracks include Vincent, Drugs are Good, We Threw Gasoline on the Fire..., Three on Speed and the aforementioned I'm Telling Tim. The only tracks to which the title really applies are a rather lame cover of the Misfits' Last Caress and the recorded-in-a-dustbin hidden track, Thalidomide Child

People forget that this record is delieratly bad for two reason 1)fat mike isfunny and does stuff like that to pee people off and 2) its bascially compilation of stuff nofx did and rejected for there albums hence the title
with that in mind then I think this i a brilliant album in its self as a compilation of (crappy songs) I actlly think some of these songs should be on nofx albums bu wat they are they are on this album. Well ayway I forgot whaty my point was sooo

Iwill just say the songs on thisalbum rule in there own right some are hard adn fast and short other are less had and less fast and longer But they are all good nofx songsand a fewcoverstoo pls all the liner notes which are hilarious.

P.S Timmy the turtle is a wicked song
buy it if your a nofx fan

The first cd is OK, most of it at least. The second has a lot of not very good stuff like F*** the Kids I & II (ludicrous 5second tracks) and sounds more like ideas for songs than songs, or songs at a VERy early stage. And why wasn't the second cd (some 22mins) put onto the first cd (some 49mins)? The best tracks on the cds are : Vincent, The Plan, All Of Me, We Threw Gasoline ... and Totally F**ked,

But to be honest there are very few songs that a "real nofx fan" wouldn't have. I know a lot of you out there don't own record players, so some of the stuff is unreleased to you techie-junkies. But it's a good album, and it goes quite far down the NOFX timeline too (i despise "best of's" that have songs from the last 2 albums and 4 or 5 new songs.... green day!). If you haven't heard the version of Murder the Government on here, or Timmy the Turtle go buy it. If you have, save your cash - they'll probably have a new full length out in 6 months or so.

Ofcourse this album is worthy of being on any punk rock fans shelf because of the pure reason it is NOFX. It deserves credit where due, all of these songs are great and should be appreciated.WHY DID THEY NOT RELEASE THEM B4! they must be proud of themselves!
