NOFX: sprechen über "Linewleum"!
Die Punker NOFX haben ihr neues Album "Single-Album" für den 26. Februar 2021 via Fat Wreck angekündigt.
Passend dazu veröffentlicht das Quartett den Song "Linewleum" mit passendem Video (feat. Avenged Sevenfold u.v.m.)
Frontmann und Labelboss Fat Mike kommentiert die Hintergründe:
"I have no idea why "Linewleum" is THE NOFX song that is covered by so many bands while other NOFX songs get hardly any attention. "Linewleum" wasn't a single, it had no video, it got no radio play, and most importantly, it didn't even have a chorus!!! All popular songs have choruses! WTF! So, One night I stayed up till 4:00 am checking out all the different versions on YouTube. Watching hundreds of bands from over 28 countries (mostly Indonesia) doing "Linewleum" was a humbling experience for me. So I decided to write a song that was a shout out to all those people that learned those four chords and remembered the non-rhyming lyrics. Then I asked the biggest of all the bands (Avenged Sevenfold) to play some leads on the song. Then M Shadows suggested we do a video together. Then I figured I should put all of the bands in the video. Well, I couldn't fit all the bands, but I picked a bunch of cool ones! A song about not playing a song that's not a hit song with a video about other bands covering the song! This is why I love punk rock writing punk songs. Rules out the door!"
