NOFX
Punk star 'Fat Mike' Burkett has defended his decision to hand out shots of urine-tainted tequila to fans during his performance at a recent music festival, insisting he did not break any laws with the sick stunt.

The NOFX bassist played a solo set as his alter ego Cokie the Clown at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas last week and appeared to treat fans to a few rounds of Patron during his show, downing a couple himself, according to Pinpoint Music.

However, his willing participants were in for a shock when he then aired a short video showing him urinating into a bottle o...

January 14th, 2009 9:21am EST
George W. Bush
It's been a long eight years for America…longer for some than others (see New Orleans). Luckily, we have some very creative musical artists out there suffering along with us. For them, the first amendment is expressed through their music.

These 30 selections may relate to the War in Iraq, the Katrina debacle, our shaky mantle as "The Greatest Country In The World," our desire to have a President smarter than us (see "nucular"), and the list goes on.

As we all hopefully look forward to our next President, let's take one last look back (and good-bye) at George W. Bush, and some so...
