Punk lifers NOFX are streaming their new album, First Ditch Effort (listen below, via CoS). Album opener ‘Six Years on Dope’ takes a candid look at the toll of the band’s punk rock lifestyle with lyrics like ‘I was a teenage trash bin / A breathing mannequin.’

Perhaps the band’s recent no-holds-barred memoir (read the Culture Creature review of The Hepatitis Bathtub) got the band in the mood for sincerity; while its trademark crass humor is on display here, First Ditch Effort finds NOFX wearing its heart on its sleeve.
