  • Vinny from Arkport, Nyat least one of you actually knows something about NOFX
  • Anaïs from Paris, United Statesfor ed and graham
    white trash is for erik, two kikes is for mike and eric melvin and spic is for el hefe.
    this title wasn't used cuz mike and eric's folks and family disliked it and pressured them not to use it.
  • Ed from Chodania, Flactually the original title was s'posed to be White trash two kykes and a spick (el hefe is the only mexican, fat mike is the white trash, and the two eric/eriks are jewish)
  • Graham from Okotoks, Alberta, CanadaThe original title for this album was "White Trash, two spicks and a kyke" It wasn't used because of the obvious derogatory racial slander
