I just think Bush is a bad president, an awful diplomat," says NOFX singer Fat Mike, who's putting together a Rock Against Bush two-volume compilation for next year. More than thirty-four bands have agreed to contribute tracks, including Green Day, Foo Fighters, Blink-182 and Good Charlotte. To mobilize young voters, NOFX are also planning an anti-Bush theme tour, ending with a big show outside the Republican National Convention in New York next September. Says Fat Mike, "If we all stand together, no one's going to be able to shoot us down."
