Tinnitist TV | Episode 89: Fat Mike Of NOFX & The Punk Rock Museum

The punk entrepreneur discusses his new museum, sex tips, Rush & much more.

Fat Mike might not be the hardest-working man in show business. But he’s definitely one of the busiest dudes in punk rock.

First and foremost of course, he’s been the frontman of the irreverent punk band NOFX for the past four decades. But that’s just the start. He’s also part of the great new group Codefendants and the supergroup cover band Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. He runs the punk label Fat Wreck Chords and the new Bottles To The Ground imprint. And he’s a serial entrepreneur who has owned gastropubs, vacation homes, marijuana dispensaries and more. But his latest venture might be his biggest yet — the new Punk Rock Museum in Las Vegas, which features thousands of musical artifacts and offers guided tours led by veteran punks, including Mike himself. Shortly after opening day — and after being MIA for our first scheduled chat — the irrepressible, hilariously filthy Mike got on the Zoom to talk about the museum, Joe Strummer’s last bag of weed, his mom’s sex tips and whatever else popped into his head, really. Enjoy. I sure did. But be warned: This one is NSFW.
