Classic (Punk) Rock for Classical Liberals: NOFX on Body Image

NOFX RibbedHere’s another punk rawk ditty for all the feminists out there. From NOFX‘s 1991 album Ribbed, “New Boobs” is a sarcastic commentary about a woman feeling societal pressure to alter her body in order to satisfy the supposed norms of attraction.

Although there is absolutely nothing wrong with cosmetic surgery, there is something amiss with a culture that shames and judges others into putting such pressure on themselves that they feel the need to artificially alter their bodies just to fit in and/or feel attractive.

Check it out:

The lyrics are quite entertaining:

Something is lacking, I’m not attracting
My boobs are not as big as I want them to be
I want 36D

I’m not receiving enough affection
Gonna get me a silicon injection
And fulfill my dreams, bust outta my seams

My social life is pathetic, I can’t find a man
What I need is cosmetic surgery
Be the best I can be

Proteins, and milkshakes, mass vitamin consumption
Who needs to diet when liposuction
Is painless and quick, local anesthetic

Now my body is a model of flawless perfection
I most certainly will cause an erection
Wherever I go, but I still don’t know

The reason why I can’t find a mate
Guys I meet ejaculate
Then leave through the door,
I can’t take anymore

My Darling, I love you
And you know my love is true
But, sweetheart, something’s come between us
And those new boobs just aren’t you
