About NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub and Other Stories

NOFX is the first tell-all autobiography from one of the world’s most influential and controversial punk bands. Alongside hilarious anecdotes about pranks and drunkenness and teenage failures—featuring the trademark NOFX sense of humor—the book also shares the ugliness and horror the band members experienced on the road to becoming DIY millionaires. Fans and non-fans alike will be shocked by the stories of murder, suicide, addiction, counterfeiting, riots, bondage, terminal illness, the Yakuza, and pee . . . lots and lots of pee. Told by each of the band members (and two former members), NOFX looks back at more than thirty years of comedy, tragedy, and completely inexplicable success.  


“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 Bathtubare 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



NOFX has released a dozen albums, sold more than 8 million records, toured six continents, starred in their own reality TV show, and founded one of the most successful indie labels in the world. They are based in California.
