No Use For A Name Biography

Hardcore punks No Use for a Name formed in Sunnydale, CA, in 1987, originally comprising singer/guitarist Tony Sly, guitarist Chris Dodge, ba**ist Steve Papoutsis, and drummer Rory Koff. Making their recorded debut later that year with "Turn It Around" -- their contribution to a double 7" released by Maximum Rock'n'Roll magazine -- NUFAN next resurfaced in 1989 with the single "Let 'Em Out," followed a year later by their full-length debut Incognito. After 1991's Don't Miss the Train, the group signed with Fat Wreck Chords for 1993's The Daily Grind; lineup changes regularly plagued No Use for a Name, and by the middle of the decade only Sly and Koff remained from the original roster. After 1994's Leche Con Carne, the band kept a relatively low profile before resurfacing three years later with Making Friends, recorded with new guitarist Chris Shiflett and ba**ist Matt Riddle. Shortly after completing 1999's More Betterness!, Shiflett exited NUFAN to join Foo Fighters; he was replaced by former Suicidal Tendencies guitarist Dave Na**ie. The NRA Years followed in 2000, and the following tour was promoted with a live album a few months later. The band stepped back into the studio at the end of 2001 and reappeared the next year with Hard Rock Bottom. Keep Them Confused followed in 2005. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
