Avenged Sevenfold‘s Synster Gates and Zacky Vengeance have joined NOFX for their new track “Linewleum“. Avenged Sevenfold themselves also appear in the below video for the track. “Linewleum” will appear on NOFX‘s upcoming album, “Single Album“, out February 26th on Fat Wreck Chords. NOFX frontman Fat Mike commented of the song and how it came to be:

“I have no idea why ‘Linoleum‘ is THE NOFX song that is covered by so many bands, while other NOFX songs get hardly any attention. ‘Linoleum‘ wasn’t a single; it had no video; it got no radio play, and most importantly, it didn’t even have a chorus!!! All popular songs have choruses! WTF!

So, one night I stayed up till 4:00 am checking out all the different versions on YouTube. Watching hundreds of bands from over 28 countries (mostly Indonesia) doing ‘Linoleum‘ was a humbling experience for me. So I decided to write a song that was a shout-out to all those people that learned those four chords and remembered the non-rhyming lyrics.

Then I asked the biggest of all the bands (Avenged Sevenfold) to play some leads on the song. Then M Shadows suggested we do a video together. Then I figured I should put all of the bands in the video. Well, I couldn’t fit all the bands, but I picked a bunch of cool ones! A song about not playing a song that’s not a hit song with a video about other bands covering the song! This is why I love punk rock and writing punk songs. Rules out the door!”
