NOFX frontman and punk figurehead Fat Mike has dictated an essay to Kerrang in which he considers the current political plight of the United States. Opining on the day Trump leaves the White House, the musician proffers his view of racism's pervasiveness and faltering awareness in the country.
The argument's an unsurprising one coming from Fat Mike, the songwriter and record label founder whose real name is Mike Burkett. After all, NOFX have made their stances clear on songs such as "We Called It America" and "The Idiots Are Taking Over." But among the musician's complaints about the state of America, he also highlights the positive attributes he sees among its citizenry's widening ideological gap.
