NOFX on Las Vegas Shooting: “At Least They Were Country Fans” | SPIN
NOFX are making news in the year 2018 because of some ill-advised stage banter regarding the Las Vegas shooting during their Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival set in Las Vegas on Sunday. According to footage shared by X1075 DJs Dave Farra and Jason Mahoney, the offending exchange looks like it takes place between NOFX frontman Fat Mike and guitarist Eric Melvin. The footage was picked up by TMZ on Wednesday.
It starts with Fat Mike saying “We played a song about Muslims and we didn’t get shot. Hooray.” Then Melvin responded “I guess you only get shot in Vegas if you are in a country band.” Fat Mike then finished the bit with “at least they were country fans and not punk rock fans.”
