Additional Notes

From The Publisher*NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub and Other Stories is the first tell-all autobiography from one of the world's most influential and controversial punk bands. Fans and non-fans alike will be shocked by the stories of murder, suicide, addiction, counterfeiting, riots, bondage, terminal illness, the Yakuza, and drinking pee. Told from the perspective of each of the band's members, this book looks back at more than thirty years of comedy, tragedy, and completely inexplicable success.
From The Publisher*The story of how NOT to be a successful punk band, as told by one of punk's most successful bands
Review Quote*Praise for NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub and Other Stories 'I can say with certainty I've never read a rock biography with such balanced elements of sensation and sincerity. Like the few great band bios, the array of experiences described in The Hepatitis Bathtub are enough to set anyone into contemplation about strength and perseverance, love and depravity, camaraderie, and a place for misfit rock and rollers in a society that to this day clings to rigid standards. A must-read for punks new and old and an eye-opening read for all new-comers.'- John Cameron Mitchell , Hedwig and the Angry Inch 'NOFX and Fat Mike are amongst the most powerful influences of my genre. This book is a 'must own' for anyone who still cherishes what is left of Punk and Rock 'n' Roll.'- Joan Jett 'Not for the faint of heart, and therefore HIGHLY recommended to EVERYBODY.'- Amanda Palmer 'F***ing gnarly. And great!'- Billie Joe Armstrong , Green Day 'Fat Mike is a rarity in music, an unadulterated authentic. In a profession filled with phonies and withholders, Mike shines as someone who always lets his freak flag fly. I like that a lot.'- Jane Wiedlin , The Go-Go's 'Better than Rancid's book.'- Brian Baker , Minor Threat/Bad Religion 'What can I say? There are not enough real punk bands left in this world we live in. If you need a little history lesson on how all this shit started, and what the true meaning of being punk rock is, I suggest you read this book now! Insanely funny, disturbingly honest, and delivered straight from the heart, this book just makes me like NOFX even more than I already do!! Read it now f***ers!!'- Fletcher , Pennywise Classic Rock, May 2016 'Compiled in the style of Motley Crue's The Dirt, this readable and engaging account of a band who live life almost as fast as the music they play is predictably rip-roaring... For being a book that spares nothing, this one is hard to beat.' AM New York, 3/27/16 '[A] raw, tell-all autobiography.' Ultimate Guitar, 3/21/16 'Aside from being very entertaining, it is also a very informative book about a band who, for the vast majority of their career, refused to do interviews and refused to sign to a major label, even when bands like Green Day and Blink-182 were cashing in.' Alternative Press Magazine, 4/7/16 'NOFX have been through a lot during their long history as a band. Like, really: a lot. Their new book, The Hepatitis Bathtub And Other Stories, details it all and does so in true, painfully honest NOFX fashion... The band held nothing back.'
