NOFX Goes Super Low at Las Vegas Show

by VVN Music

NOFX may have taken tastelessness to a new low, at least as far as their usual stage banter goes.

The band was playing at the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival in Las Vegas on Sunday (May 27), when they began talking and addressing the crowd from the stage.

"Fat" Mike Burkett started the exchange off by saying "You play a song about Muslims, you're going to get shot, alright. "

It appears that guitarist Eric Melvin replied "Man, I'd say getting shot in Vegas...I mean if you're a country band", referring to the October 1, 2017 killing of 58 people and injuring of 851 during the Route 91 Music Festival.

Burkett kept the big going with "You know, I mean, that sucked, but at least they were country fans and not punk rock fans."

The crowd became restless and there were a few groans and boos which prompted Burkett to say "You were all thinking it!".
