Fun Factoid Friday: Fear of angry grandfather forces NOFX to change album name

nofx-white-trash-two-heebs-and-a-beanEvery Friday the punk rock geniuses here at Dying Scene are going to unleash a little bit of punk scene trivia all over your asses.  Today’s “fun factoid” is about one of the best punk albums of the 90’s:

The NOFX album White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean gets its name from the ethnic or religious background of NOFX band members – Eric Melvin (guitar) and Mike (bass/vocals) are both Jewish and Hefe (guitar) is Hispanic.  But that’s not the “fun factoid” because everybody knows that.  What you probably didn’t know is that White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean was originally going to be named White Trash, Two Kikes and a Spic but Melvin’s mother was offended and threatened to tell his grandfather, so they changed it.
