Formed in Berkeley in 1983 and relocating to Los Angeles not long afterwards,NOFX has steered clear of major labels and commercial exposure over the course of their career, recording an impressive number of full-lengths albums plus an assortment of EPs and singles. The band started out as a trio comprising vocalist/bassist Fat Mike (Mike Burkett), guitarist Eric Melvin, and drummer Erik Sandin(aka Erik Ghint/Erik Shun); Sandin quit in 1985, and his place was taken by Scott Sellers; that same year, NOFX  also recorded two 7" EPs for the Mystic label No F-X and So What If We´re on Mystic?. Sellers quit shortly thereafter and was replaced by Scott Aldahl  for only two weeks, upon which point Sandin rejoined the band; vocalist Dave Allen also joined in 1986, but his tenure was tragically cut short by a fatal car accident. Dave Casillas joined as a second guitarist later in the year, by which point NOFX´s touring schedule had become far-ranging and rigorous. The EP The PMRC Can Suck on This  was released on Fat Mike´s own Fat Wreck Chords label in 1987; Casillas departed the group in 1989 and was replaced by Steve Kitwiller for ...  They experiment with their music, they play -hardcore punk, skate punk, melody punk, ska punk, pop pubnk, pop, rock, pop rock and more. NOFX are very antipolitical band. They be able to make great song, but sometimes they make really shit song. They relase under Fat Wreck Chords. NOFX are legend, and it will be a lot of bands, which will  plagiarize this great and really punk band.
