Forget the spirit of the season and holiday cheer and all that bullshit: NOFX is here to kick you in the yule log and remind us all that God doesn't exist.
Our favorite snot-nosed Californian punks just released a video for what is arguably the best Christmas song of all time, "Xmas Has Been X'ed," the last track on their most recent long-player Self Entitled. The video finds Mike, Melvin, Hefe, and Erik on a quasi-satanic Santacon, tossing back beers and whiskey in St. Nick attire. It's worth a watch if you're sick of everyone telling you how happy and festive you're supposed to be every December.
Once you've peeled yourself off your bear rug or whatever, click right here to buy your very own copy of Self Entitled. If you live in Quebec, Hawaii, or Japan, you can catch them on tour in the next few months - tour dates below.
