Today's Music Monday is in honor of a great punk talent who recently and sadly passed away on the 31st of July. Those of you who are into punk will know I'm talking about Tony Sly - front man for No Use for a Name.
No Use for a Name were one of my favourite bands during my teenage years, I had the album 'Making Friends' and it got it's fair share of thrashing (along with some of their other albums but that one is the one I remember the best).
If you want to know more about his passing this is the link to the YouTube coverage by ClevverMusic, there was no cause of death released and I don't think there has been any updates since then. Very sad for his family, friends and the punk world in general - he was a very talented guy.
The song I'm showcasing here is one of No Use For A Name's songs from the 1997 album 'Making Friends'. It's called 'The Answer is Still No' but the video here is a bit of a different version - it's from a live show and at the beginning Tony says this is how NOFX made them play it on tour with them, it's a bit faster and more upbeat. Also please note there is some bad language in this video so if that's not your thing please don't watch it.
