Punk Band Makes Horrible Joke About Las Vegas Shooting

posted by Kayla Hanley - 

The Punk Rock Band NOFX had been playing the "Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival" in Las Vegas and after one of their songs frontman Fat Mike said, "We played a song about Muslims and we didn't get shot. Hooray.” 

Another band member then chimed in saying, "I guess you only get shot in Vegas if you are in a country band."

THEN one member then said, "That [massacre] sucked, but at least they were country fans and no punk rock fans." 

The shooting is referring to the 58 people who died and 500 who were injured during the Route 91 Harvest Festival in October of last year when Jason Aldean was performing. 

The bands tour sponsor "Stone Brewing" was NOT happy about the comments and dropped them. 

The company will now donate all profits of the beer to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Foundation, which provides trauma counseling for officers and other first responders alongside other safety programs, training and funding. 

HERE is a statement made by the company: 

“We at Stone Brewing are aware of NOFX’s insensitive and indefensible statements this past weekend," a statement reads. "As a result, we are severing all our ties with NOFX, including festival sponsorship and the production of our collaboration beer. We respect punk rock, and the DIY ethos for which it stands. To us, it means standing up for things you believe in, and fearlessly committing to what’s right. And it is for that reason that Stone Brewing is immediately disassociating ourselves from the band NOFX. Stone had a sponsorship deal for this summer’s Punk In Drublic festivals. Emphasis ‘had.’ That sponsorship is now canceled.”
