About MR. NOBODY

Joe and the Shitboys return for 2024 with storming new single ‘MR. NOBODY’.

The single ushers in a new era for the vegan bisexual four piece from the remote Faroe Islands, whose brand of self proclaimed “Shitpunk” has seen a wealth of critical acclaim from the likes of The Guardian, NME, Clash, DIY, Dork as well as gaining a fan in punk icon Iggy Pop.

‘MR. NOBODY’ is the first taste of what promises to be another bumper year for the quartet, and comes ahead of a big summer of festivals as well as headline dates in the UK and mainland Europe.

Effortlessly encapsulating the band’s no nonsense approach to writing, ‘MR. NOBODY’ is a groovy and emotive call to arms that is centered on calling out the forces that hold you back and the conservative backdrop of Faroese culture.

Speaking about ‘MR. NOBODY’, frontman Joe said:

“I wanted to write about a subject that’s already been done to death, which is giving the middle finger to those who don’t believe in you. In the Nordic countries, we have a thing called “the law of Jante” which are ten commandments that represent the dark side of egalitarianism. The commandments are all rooted in staying in your lane and not thinking you’re anything special. The smaller the society, the more powerful the law of Jante is. Trying to breakout of this echo chamber of negativity was tough, as the doubts of the ignorant can be deafening, and I was always comparing myself to those who I perceived as more successful than me. What changed it for me, was the realization that everybody is a nobody in some circles. Everybody is the ugly duckling in some sense. None of us will be remembered in 10.000 years. So, you’re just a nobody, but so fucking what?”

It won’t get you to the top, but speak the fuck up
Don’t apologize to assholes
Fuck them and their dark souls
Fuck fake ass friends
Fuck shitty trends

Cuz you’re not just a nobody
You’re Mr. fucking Nobody
You’re not just a nobody

No one wants you to sing, but you do your own thing
When no one believes in you
You stay true
Fuck all their lies
Fuck shitty vibes
Keep your integrity
Mr. Nobody

Cuz you’re not just a nobody
You’re Mr. fucking Nobody
You’re not just a nobody
You’re Mr. fucking Nobody

You’re not just a nobody
You’re Mr. fucking Nobody
You’re not just a nobody
You’re Mr. fucking Nobody
You’re not just a nobody
You’re Mr. fucking Nobody
You’re not just a nobody
You’re Mr. fucking Nobody
