BYO Split Series, Vol. 3

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bradley Torreano
The BYO Split Series is definitely one of the better ideas in the underground punk scene, pairing two like-minded artists to perform each other's songs. Despite the differences in approach, NOFX handles the snotty ska punk of Rancid quite well. Tracks like "Olympia, WA" are not only covered faithfully, but there are nice little in jokes (like slurring the words á la Rancid singer Tim Armstrong) that make this that little bit more entertaining. Especially good is their version of "Radio," which maintains its Caribbean flavor and nostalgic feel. Rancid does a better job of covering NOFX, flavoring their covers with the same classic punk feel that makes their own material...

Rancid does a better job of covering NOFX, flavoring their covers with the same classic punk feel that makes their own material so engaging. Their cover of "Bob" is ramshackle and messy, yet filled with an energy that only occurs in the best punk rock. What is also great about these split discs is that you have a direct comparison of the two artists, so their impersonations of one another resonate much louder. This is by no means essential, as this is all previously released material, but the sound of two bands that are genuinely friends covering each other's songs is a real treat for punk fans.

    Great Punk CD

    To of the best punk bands today, personally I think Nofx did a much better job than Rancid some of the Nofx songs like corazon de oro, and Antennas are better than Rancids Orginal Songs, Great CD if youre a fan of either Band

    Best compilation ever!!!!

    this mixture is so awesome. Rancid and NoFx are similar but nofx started out ska and then Rancid turned ska so they switches places, then covered each other in this album.... BUY IT!!!!!

    Hello to you

    What a fine cd. I live in Venezuala and am big punk fan. Nofx is favorite band for me. One time I masturbated with icy hot and got a major skin irritation. Please don't tell anyone that I told you this.
