News is a bit slow today, so I invite you to feel some Thanksgiving cheer with Bad Astronaut's cover of NOFX's "Linoleum," one of our famed ABSOLUTExclusives. Formed as a sideproject from members of Lagwagon (Joey Cape and the late Derrick Plourde) and Sugarcult (Marko 72), BA's third and final album, Twelve Small Steps, One Giant Disappointment, is in stores now on Fat Wreck.
NOFXcontest! After the teasings of the recent the band's EP, Never Trust A Hippy, the new NOFX full-length, Wolves In Wolves' Clothing is almost upon us. What could be better? How about a personal item from one of the members?

Others will win free merch. Pre-order your copy now and on April 18th, you could be that much closer to dropping this bad ass bowling ball on your foot! This contest ends on Tuesday April 18, 2006.
