《 对错误主义战争》专辑（英文名：The War on Errorism）
唱片公司: Fat Wreck
此文为旧闻，此文贴于NEWSCHOOL朋克乐队NOFX之专辑“The War On ERRORISM”内页，拿出与大家共赏
在几个月前美国再次发动对伊拉克的战争时，美国著名的PUNK乐队NOFX也在同一时间发行了他们的最新专辑"The War on Errorism"（对错误主义的战争）
整张专辑就好像在陈述他们的政治立场。在专辑封面上，乐队将美国总统乔治.W.布什画成了一个小丑。英语中并没有ERRORISM这个词，不难看出，乐队是在影射布什的"The War On Terrorism"(对恐怖主义的战争)的言论。他们还在专辑封面的背面将布什画成了一个拿着气球的马戏团小丑，并在旁边写到"Somewhere in Texas, there is a village without its idiot"(在德克萨斯的某地，有个村子没了笨蛋)
01. The Separation of Church and Skate

总之，这就是我们将这些东西放在这张CD上的原因。人们需要不同的渠道来获取信息。这就是我们用来告知人们我们怎样都受骗了的方法。影片“史无前例”清楚的展现了2000年总统大选是在弗罗里达是怎样被非法操纵的。作为所谓的民主领袖，美国现在成了世界范围内玩笑的笑柄。共和党偷窃了选举并非法的搬到了白宫。这应该是美国历史上最大的丑闻，但却似乎没有人来谈论此事。每个人所说的都是“行了”或者“都两年了”。哼，我们不会罢休，而且你也不应该。如果有足够的人看到到底发生了什么事， 希望我们能保证以后将不会再次发生类似事件。嘿，古巴导弹危机的真相被掩盖了20多年，但是当真相大白的时候，这个事件和刚发生时是同样的重要。请看看这段纪录片的剪辑，并尽可能多的将它放给其他人看。如果你想要部完整的该片，去 www.unprecedented.org ， 事情不会自己改变，我们要团结一致才能将这个国家从罪犯（目前来说，战争罪犯）的手里夺回。
Hello, and greetings from NOFX. How are things with you? That's nice. This would be a good time to start the introduction to this CD. There's a bunch of punk songs and some other kinds of songs (I guess we still do play ska) and plenty of sophomoric lyrics, but unlike other NOFX CD's, this one has some bonus stuff. We've included and enhanced CD featuring some videos and some political commentary. Yeah, we're not really known for our politics, but maybe it's time we are. Maybe it's time for people to start sharing inform ation and opinions instead of relying on our government or the corporate owned media to tell us what they think we should know. You don't have to be a political analyst to see that America is suffering from a general lack of knowledge. In fact, Americans seem to have a very limited knowledge of knowledge. Lots of opinions floating around, but very little actual knowledge. For being one of the wealthiest and supposedly greatest nations on the planet, one would think tha tthe people o fthis great country would reflect that greatness. They Don't. Compared to other Western countries, Americans rank among the lowest when it comes to education and general knowledge of world affairs.
The first question one would ask is why? Why are Americans so ignorant? Could it be that the American government wants them that way? If they didn't, they might spend more money on education. The best way to keep the status quo is to keep the majority of people happy. The best way to keep them happy, is to keep them ignorant. Ignorance is bliss and the blissful don't revolt.
How do you keep 300 million people from knowing or caring what's going on in the world? Well that seems pretty easy. First, you make sure that people spend most of their time concerned with their own security. You make sure local news shows cover all the local shootings, kidnappings, and armed robberies. Then throw in the sports, weather, and the ever changing price of gasoline. It seems that all major news sources provide the same one sided stories. When all you get to see is one side, it's hard to understand the complexities of an issue or have empathy for the other side. Someone such as Bill Maher from the canceled TV show Politically Incorrect was ostracized for giving an honest yet unpopular viewpoint on the subject of terrorism, and his show was subsequently canceled. Somehow one of the most inherently American pastimes of criticizing the government is now considered to be completely un-American. It's our responsibility as Americans to exercise our right to civil disobedience and dissent. These are the principles on which our country was founded.
Anyway, this is the reason we have included the enhanced CD. People need an alternative source of inform ation. This is our way to help inform the public on how we are all getting ass f**ked. The movie "Un-precedented" clearly illustrates how the 2000 presidential election was rigged in Florida. For being the so-called leader of democracy, the United States is now the butt of a worldwide joke. The Republican party stole the election and illegally moved into the White House. It's pretty much the biggest scandal in US history and no one seems to be talking about it. All everyone keeps saying is ``get over it'' or ``that was so two years ago.'' Well, we're not getting over it and neither should you. If enough people see what really happened, hopefully we can make sure that it never happens again. Hey, the truth about the Cuban missile crisis didn't come out for over 20 years, but it was just as important when it did. Please watch this trailer for this documentary and show it to as many people as you can. If you would like a full length copy, go to www.unprecedented.org to get one. Things are not going to change on their own. We need to work together to take this country back from the criminals (currently war criminals) that have stolen it from us.
A lot of you reading this might be thinking that we're assholes or American traitors. Well, we may be assholes, but we're certainly not traitors. We are actually patriots in the true sense of the word. We are the ones calling attention to the faults of our government and trying to fix them. We are the ones trying to expose mistakes in order to learn from them instead of covering them up.
We are the ones who have concern for more than just ourselves. We are the ones trying to educate people. We are the ones who question authority instead of simply obeying it. We are the ones who are patriotic.... F**K THAT! Did I just say that? Let's go back. Partiotism is a little too close to nationalism. Or is it the same thing? Either way, we are f**king better than patriots. We are world patriots. Not only do we care about our own country, we care about the whole f**king planet. We are human beings with the capacity to care for more than just ourselves. So lets use that capability. It's not enough to simply think locally or nationally. We must think globally.
Americans are so concerned with their own personal safety that they've turned their backs on this country and this planet. They put an American flag on the SUV and figure they've done their part. They're more concerned with their feardoms than our freedoms (Hey, that's pretty good!) so lets stop with the ``We are #1'' bullshite. America is not #1. We're like #11 or #12. For the 91% of Americans who haven't travelled outside the country (such as George W. before he was ``elected''), there are several countries that are arguably better than this one. I would put Australia, Canada, Sweden, Holland, and Denmark on the top of the list for sure. Some of these countries have all the freedoms the US has* plus a whole lot more of 'em (prostitution, socialized medicine, euthanasia, gay marriage, legalized recreational drugs, gay military enlistment, abolishment of death penalty, etc.) Don't get my wrong, #12 is still pretty d\*amn good out of over 250 countries, but there's still a lot more room for improvement. That's what this is really all about: positive change. We don't want to bash America, we want to make it better. In order to make it better, you must first point out what is wrong with it. Well, we got a big pointing stick and we're aiming right for the eye. We're looking to poke that sucker right out of its socket. Thanx for reading our rant, and thanx for buying, burning, borrowing, or stealing this CD. Sincerely,
* Not sure if Australia has more freedoms, but the weather and surf sure are great, and the people are really nice
“NOFX是一支乐队，而不是他妈的你们的商品！我们不愿象Green Day那样入彀在MTV上一点一点腐烂直至灭亡！”---NOFX从1984年在Los Angeles的Berkley正式组队到2000年Pump up the valuum的发行，NOFX这个如雷贯耳的名字，1984年组队至今给人们留下了无数的好的作品，NOFX这支教父级的朋克乐队无疑是最有资格对人们大叫“朋克不是昙花一现！”的，虽然他们拒绝商业电台商业机构的鼓吹，拒绝在MTV上露脸，拒绝在商业炒作的极限运动现场为人伴奏，这几个朋克中坚依然从上个世纪活跃到了现在，依然有青少年在自己家的车库里不厌其烦地排练他们的歌，NOFX的几个小伙象不老的长青藤一样，死死裹住朋克的大旗，久久不放，正如他们所说的那样，“让朋克永不消逝是我们义不容辞的责任！”，NOFX再一次证明了自己是死硬朋克的绝妙典范，他们想在什么时候目空一切就在什么时候目空一切。
