I always get it confused lyrically and forget they covered this. I believe the song was inspired by Bob Marley considering how close the lyrics are to a Bob Marley song. Do not worry about copying. The original sounds nothing like this. Would know that version immediately. So many cover their songs and this band is great friends with the original band. They probably covered half their songs and vice versa. Just thought this was awesome considering the style of songs they normally play. Slight Ska in maybe 10 percent of their songs, but nothing like this. They have to much humor is why I do not think they actually make songs more in this style. They could though. Could make them funny and smart also. Come on Fat Mike, think outside the box. Sure no one has ever told him that before, in a live version of this song. ANYWAY.......Also Fat Mike said this is third best punk band ever. I am guessing Clash, Ramones Romones,Clash Rancid? He said it, do not shoot the messenger. I have to say I kind of agree.

So, Radio was inspired by Bob Marley? That is news to me! Love that tune. NOFX's version is lacking in my opinion. Lol. But I am biased, can only handle them in small quantities. Lol!

@maezee I am not sure, but lyrically, it sounds like Bob Marley could have wrote this. Plus, Bob Marley wrote this, "One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain." Kind of sounds like this could be the follow up version to that song. We can talk about Rancid covering NOFX all day if you want .lol I do love that cover also.

@maezee Yes, they cover those along with Brews and probably others. I just cannot think of them. lol I did actually get in trouble with my local bartender one time when I played Dont Call Me White on the jukebox. She thought the song was racist. She seemed to focus more on that one chorus line and not the rest of the lyrics. Then again, maybe she heard them all, but she was cursing at me when the best part was coming on. So I doubt it. That is where I learned you can never be critical of white people even if you are white.
