AUSTRALIA'S HOME OF OFFICIAL MERCHANDISE
August Burns Red have teamed up with Shane Told from Silverstein for a great cover of NOFX's "Linoleum"

August Burns Red have teamed up with Shane Told from Silverstein for a great cover of NOFX's "Linoleum". With social distancing of course. 

August Burns vocalist JB Brubaker commented  "ABR covered 'Linoleum' by NOFX on a 7" we did in 2009. We busted it out on tour periodically over the years. This past summer, while touring with Silverstein, we played it semi-regularly with Shane Told handling the vocals. While we were all stuck at home in isolation, we thought it would be fun to put together a quarantine version of 'Linoleum' that featured Shane. We each recorded our own parts at home and our sound engineer Chris Pollock mixed the audio together. Then, we had our touring photographer, Ray Duker, edit all the videos together. This was a fun project for us to put together, and we hope you enjoy it."

Linoleum is the opening track from NOFX's ground breaking album 'Punk in Drublic' released in 1994 by Epitath records. It was NOFX's best selling album at the time and is considered a classic punk album by fans and critics. It achieved gold record status after six years of its release. Worldwide the album has sold over 1 million copies. The song has featured in Guitar Hero World Tour, the soundtrack for the game Grind Session and it's been covered by Shai Hulud, Streetlight Manifesto, Bad Astronaut and Frank Turner.

The lyrics are:

Possessions never meant anything to me
I'm not crazy
Well that's not true, I've got a bed
And a guitar and a dog named Bob who pisses on my floor
That's right, I've got a floor
So what, so what, so what?
I've got
Pockets full of Kleenex and lint and holes
Where everything important to me
Just seems to fall right down my leg
And onto the floor
My closest friend linoleum
Linoleum
Supports my head
Gives me something to believe
That's me on the beach side combing the sand
Metal meter in my hand
Sporting a pocket full of change
That's me on the street with a violin under my chin
Playing with a grin
Singing gibberish
That's me on the back of the bus
That's me in the cell
That's me inside your head
That's me inside your head
That's me inside your head
