NOFX will soon be no more.

In the comments of an Instagram post, frontman Michael “Fat Mike” Burkett reveals that 2023 will be the long-running punk band’s “last year.”

“We will be announcing our final shows soon,” Mike writes. “It’s been an amazing run.”

NOFX was founded in 1983 by bassist/vocalist Fat Mike, guitarist Eric Melvin and drummer Erik “Smelly” Sandin, all of whom still remain in the band. The group has released 14 studio albums — all on independent record labels — including 1994’s RIAA Gold-certified Punk in Drublic, which featured the beloved song “Linoleum.”
