"Radio" as written by and Rick Nielsen....
We wrote this song, it's not too short, it's not too long
It's got back up voc's in just the right places
It's got a few oohs and ahhs
It takes a little pause
Just before the second chorus
Please play this song on the radio
Almost every line is sung in time
Almost every verse ends in a rhyme
The only problem we had was writing
Enough words
But that's okay, because the chorus is
Coming up again now
Please play this song on the radio
Please play this song on the radio

Right about this time
Some shit head will be drawing a fat fucking line
Over the title on the back sleeve, what an asshole
So Mr. DJ I hope you've already made your segway
Or the FCC will take a shit right on your head
Can't play this song on the radio
Can't play this song on the radio

    General Commenti heard this version before i heard rancid's version, and personally i like nofx's better. just cause i like their style better i guess. but i thought it was pretty damn cool that they really made the cover their own by making it so different. byo splits are fun.

    General CommentThis a good cover, but I must say I do like Rancid's better. It's got more energy.

    General Commentthis cover shreds, and so does the original. tim armstrong and rancid are all about the roots reggae stuff, so i think its awesome nofx chose to make a reggae-ish version of a rancid song.
