The title of NOFX's White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean is a pretty fair indicator of what's going on in the grooves -- specifically, tongue-in-cheek, politically incorrect forays into America's pancultural society. A SoCal punk band that recalls both the eclecticism and attitude of Camper Van Beethoven, NOFX rips through much more than standard-issue thrash; they transform Minor Threat's "Straight Edge" into a blues song with fake B.B. King vocals, go ska for the wry character study "Bob," and examine lesbian lifestyles with surprising maturity on "Liza and Louise." Not quite so understanding is "Johnny Appleseed," which pokes fun at the very concept of cultural diversity and is sung in a Hispanic accent by guitarist El Hefe.

This is the second greatest nofx cd after punk in drublic. many of these songs can be heard live on the ''i heard they suck live'' album. This album has the first studio recordig with the illustrious El Hefe. I can not choose a best song because their all good. I like Liza because its about lesbians. NOFX is one of the many great bands that are perfectly happy not being on MTV or comercial radio which means that they are all about the music and not the fame. They help prove the theory that any band would sellout if they had the chance is wrong.
I loved White Trash: Two Heebs and a Bean! NOFX is definately not a sell-out band. Another thing I like about them is they talk about stuff that is happening right now and it makes you think about the world...not about pointless stuff that no one cares about. You HAVE TO buy this CD....and all of their others!
For once a none sellout punk band and actually sounds sweet. A true punk band.
a classic punk cd. one of the first punk albums I bought. Every track is good(even straight edge and Johnny appleseed, i thier own way) A fun album. buy it if you like punk rock. End
