Liberal Animation is the debut album by the American punk rock band NOFX.


Fat Mike wrote the majority of the album on a guitar he bought from Lynn Strait of Snot.[2]

The track "Shut Up Already" borrows a riff from the Led Zeppelin song "Black Dog".


It was originally released in 1988 through Wassail Records. It was re-released through Epitaph Records in 1991. The title is a spoonerism of "animal liberation" and the cover artwork is a reflection of that. Amateur style music videos were made for the tracks "Shut Up Already" and "Mr. Jones".[1][3]
