The Hepatitis Bathtub and Other Stories
Available as an audiobook for the first time, read by band members “Fat Mike” Burkett, Eric Melvin, Erik “Smelly” Sandin, and Aaron “El Hefe” Abeyta along with special guest narrator musician and comedian Tommy Chong.

NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub and Other Stories is the first tell-all autobiography from one of the world’s most influential and controversial punk bands. Fans and non-fans alike will be shocked by the stories of murder, suicide, addiction, counterfeiting, riots, bondage, terminal illness, the Yakuza, and drinking pee. Told from the perspective of each of the band’s members, this audiobook 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 Bathtub are 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
Fucking gnarly. And great!—Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day
