"All Nofx songs sound the same blah blah blah, they're just as stupid as Blink blah blah blah, why won't they just fucking die blah blah blah". Whatever.

'Ribbed' goes like this."Green Corn" is fast. "Moron Brothers" is fast and funny, about two assholes who fuck everyone over. "Shower Days" is funny. He only wan't to take a bath 2 times a week. Now that they mentioned it, I don't smell too fresh myself. "Food, Sex, and Ewe" is a ska song with a cool, 80's metal intro. "Just the Flu" is fast. "El Lay" is about Los Angeles, and people seem to like this song a lot. "New Boobs" is great. Fast, and about a chick who finnaly gets the boob job she wants, only then she causes dudes to squirt all over themselves before she can even get any action.HA! "Cheese/Where's My Slice" is fast and funny in a whiny sort of way. "Together on the Sand" sounds like a lounge tune, and he's talking about fingerin' some chick on the beach. "Nowhere" is also fast. "Brain Constipation" is kinda slow and metalish. "Gonoherpasyphilaids" is about some dude who got a new STD from some funky ho, and it's fast too. "I Don't Want You Around" isn't fast, but it isn't slow either, and it makes fun of the Grateful Dead. "The Malachi Crunch" is at the end of the record and it's really fast, with cool lyrics.

NOFX has two really good guitar players, and really fast drummer, and a not-so-good bass player/singer. They are funny too.

The last decent nofx record period. After this they turned to complete shit. But on this there are some good less commercial sounding stuff on it. Hints of the past, but hints of the future which looked bleak.

Ha funny, most of the reviews on this site are mediocre at best

I love all songs on this album and man, ur review was kinda weak. We all agree in that, well doesn't matter what you say about the album, it's only an opinion. But man i can't get how u say fat mike isn't good bass player. I agree with the one who said listen to shower days and I add listen the bass line on i dont want you around and well listen go to jiihootabs and see all the fuckin lines he does. If you dont have fucking idea of what a bass sounds like at least dont tell anything about it.

Man, that is one crappy review...but one awesome album. Probably my favourite of all NOFX's. Malachi Crunch - what a song...amazing.

NOFX ARE KINGS OF PUNK

Who's the bummer who did this rewiew ?
A rewiew is not all about telling if the songs are fast or not ...
Still , I can undrestand that Ribbed is quite all the same all the way , but it's quite cool , it's just some very good rock'n'roll , and believe , it's hard to find some good rock'n'roll these days on planet earth , so everyone who has listened enough to NOFX must enjoy this CD as much as the other ( for a NOFX fan , there's no bad NOFX abum , that's logical ).
So , if you don't like this album , i don't care , but when you'll be like me , just a bit fed up to listen to Punk in Drublic and White Trash.. 10 times a day , I'm sure you'll like Ribbed and appreciate it for its true worth .

Ok for me this is the CD that started to sound like you could listen too where as the ones before are all kinda poor sound quality and they.... well, they blow, hay dont get me wrong I'm one of there biggest fans I even travelled from england to new zealand to see them once.

Anonymous (February 14, 2003)

and fuck pop punk like blink 182, sum 41 and any other "punk" bands that are on MTV!!

Oh yeah, ribbed is a great album and should be owned by all!!

Anonymous (February 14, 2003)

fuck all you little fucks bitching and moaning about how punk is dead and what-not!! It's very much alive and kicking wiht bands such as NOFX, ther Distillers, Rancid, Anti-flag and I could go on and on. So shut the fuck up about how punk is dead! If I see you in th epit your getting messed up, so stop bitching because no one gives a shit, I'm out...

good album

good singing
good guitars
good drumming
better than any other of that pop punk that guys like sum 41 and blink 182 release today
they should be shot

Great album, even if mike's singing isn't at its best

bemused (September 25, 2002)

Its sought of hard to say which is NOFX's best album in my opinion. I'd go with White Trash-then this. Its a no brainer on their worst though. What the fuck is Liberal Animaton? I understand why it pains Fat Mike to listen to it, it is beyond horrible and it always makes me laugh when the cooler-than-thous say how much it rox and how much their new stuff sux ass. Is there anyone out their who believes this?

Anonymous (July 7, 2002)

GREAT review. It made me laugh. GREAT album. It makes me laugh.

This album is pretty much the best, what they've ever put out. The newer albums are a bit to soft. Nothing against them, I like them as ever, but I miss the sound of ribbed and S&M airlines pretty much

waste_elite (December 20, 2001)

haha, nice review. definitely in the Nofx spirit. anyway, this is one of my favorite nofx albums. raw and crude, how punk should be.
side note: one of the great things about nofx is the fact that they say and do whatever the fuck they want to regardless of what anyone else thinks. who cares if they write songs about lesbians or vaginas or shit or piss or anything else. they do what they like. very un-pc, which is a refreshing change of pace.

Anonymous (October 30, 2001)

The fist have of this album is great.But Towards the end it gets realy hard to listen to.
But it realy shows how tight Nofx realy were.
This album is diff worth pickin up.
One of the bands best in my op.

Anonymous (October 30, 2001)

well since everyone seems to make fun of NOFX i think they rock, and i think fat mike (which mind you is all for parental guidence stickers if you dont believe me go to nofx.org and in the interviews one of them has him talking in agreence for it) i like thier songs that dont involve Lesbians or transexualism, i think id be highly offended if i was one of them and this guy pokes fun at it - Rob

alright, i'm sorry for saying the review is bad. i didn't realize you were trying to make it fit the album. however, just because i haven't heard all the NOFX albums, doesn't mean I'm not interested in punk and doesn't mean i shouldn't be on this site. you think you've heard every punk album? If you have, then you need something else to do.

Great album ! Shitty review !....and Fat Mike IS a good bass player !

IagainstI (October 27, 2001)

This probably Nofx at their best. Their best album in my opinion

Anonymous (October 27, 2001)

"I Don't Want You Around" is ska on crack. And it is fast, it just doesn't have distorted punk guitar. Listen to that bass and try to tell me its not fast. GAWD I wish they'd play it live (I love this song)

One of the more complete NOFX albums...not many clunkers in this one, and the last without El Hefe.

i agree with fathead the guitars are insane.

Damn, I said pretty much exactly what Fathead already did.
I better start reading all the comments before posting mine.

I don't know what you guys are talking about.... I think that review fit the album perfectly. If you really need someone to explain what NOFX sound like to you then I suggest contemplating whether or not you really belong on punknews.org

am i writing to a bunch of half-wit, brainless asses here. the review, like lots of Nofx's work, was meant to be funny, rude and short. If you need a review to tell you what a NOFX album sounds like, I highly suggest you re-evaluate your web-browsing.- fathead

Anonymous (October 25, 2001)

holy shit, that review was awful. thank you for telling me there are a lot of fast songs, that tells me a little less than if you said "there are words on the album". I think somoene else should review it so i can have some kind of idea what the album's like.

ETx310 (October 25, 2001)

rightclique is all over these nofx reviews. Another great album. A lot of people like nofx, and a lot of people hate them. Whichever it is, it's your thing. They're not gods gift to comedy, but I usually do laugh a few times when i see them.

Great album. I guess the review was a joke, it's pretty awful.

best nofx album, hands down

Anonymous (October 25, 2001)

I love the album, it's a classic. But Fat Mike a bad bassplayer?!? That's bullshit. Listen to Showerdays and tell me he can't play bass, fool.

rightclique (October 25, 2001)

considering that they're a novelty comedy band they still make a lot of shitty music.. i'd like them a lot better without all the stupid immature blink 182 style jokes. obviously they were doing stupid immature jokes long before blink 182, but the jokes are just as bad or worse. i like nofx more serious songs, or at least the ones that are't incredibly stupid (my vagina, to name one).. they have a good sound, but truthfully, at least half of their songs can't be called punk rock. and pretty much every band on fat wreckc chords sucks anyway. most of them aren't even punk, but since most people on this site have lost site of what punk really is, i guess thats just the way it goes...

and, um, that reviewer needs to lay off the crack,cuz a lot that didn't make sense. he didn't even explain his little quote at the top.

sickboi (October 25, 2001)

Heh heh. Great, crude review. Blunt. I likes.
