Avenged Sevenfold guests in the new music video for NOFX’s “Linewleum.” The song is a new version of the NOFX tune “Linoleum,” which has become one of the band’s most high-profile songs.

NOFX’s Fat Mike says he had the idea for “Linewleum” during a late night of watching covers of “Linoleum” on YouTube.

“I decided to write a song that was a shout-out to all those people that learned those four chords and remembered the non-rhyming lyrics,” Mike said in a statement.

He added, “Then I asked the biggest of all the bands (Avenged Sevenfold) to play some leads on the song. Then M. Shadows suggested we do a video together. Then I figured I should put all of the bands in the video. Well, I couldn’t fit all the bands, but I picked a bunch of cool ones!”

“Linewleum” will arrive on NOFX’s upcoming “Single Album,” set to arrive on Feb. 26.
