El Hefe and Fat Mike: NOFX

This NOFX video goes way the f*ck back, to the era of the mid-Nineties, when I was young and had a circle of friends who all dyed their hair but rarely washed it. It was on a Fat Wreck Chords video sampler, and the sampler had this and "Stickin' in My Eye" on it, as well as some other great stuff from bands like Lagwagon and Pennywise. The video reminds me of the olden days of yore, and you have to love the way the skacore breakdown gives the middle of the song a kind of easygoing, friendly vibe, right before shoving a size-twelve Doc Marten boot up your ass.

Fat Mike (the singer) ended his career wearing a skirt, heavy boots, and sporting a mohawk fin that made him look, vaguely, like he should be standing at the foot of a cross, holding a spear. Bob, it has been claimed by a SubGenius or two, may be the LIVING AVATARA OF JEHOVA ONE.

(Somehow this mystery all fits together.)
