No Use For A Name

Profile:
No Use For A Name (sometimes abbreviated NUFAN or No Use) was a punk rock band from San Jose, California. Starting out in 1986 as a hardcore punk band, the group went through a number of early members until a lineup coalesced around singer/songwriter/guitarist Tony Sly and founding drummer Rory Koff. Their first two albums were released through the New Red Archives label, after which they signed to Fat Wreck Chords where they would remain, releasing seven studio albums and shifting to a melodic punk rock sound.

Bassist Matt Riddle (ex-Face To Face and Pulley) joined in 1995, and guitarist Dave Nassie (ex-22 Jacks) replaced Chris Shiflett (who left to join Foo Fighters) in 1999, cementing a lineup that would remain in place for ten years. Nassie left in 2009 and was replaced by Chris Rest (also of Rich Kids On LSD and Lagwagon), while Koff bowed out in 2010 and was replaced by Boz Rivera (ex-Rich Kids On LSD and Mad Caddies). No Use For A Name disbanded following Sly's sudden death in July 2012 at the age of 41.
