With their 12th full-length studio album right around the corner, punk heroes NOFX haven't skipped a beat, keeping things fast and aggressive with no shortage of pointed political lyrics. On "This Machine Is 4," frontman Fat Mike howls against socio-economic oppression, while accepting responsibility for being the change he wants to see in the world. "But we all make up the parts/ Cut us up and take our hearts," he sings over searing power chords.

"What's not interesting about 'This Machine Is 4' is that it's based on a Dr. Suess story," Fat Mike tells Rolling Stone. "What is interesting is that there's only one guitar track on it. Why is that? No reason, I just thought it sounded cool like that."

NOFX's upcoming album, Self Entitled, is out September 11th.
