The Billboard
No Use for a Name (Abbreviated NUFAN) is a Punk rock band from San Jose, California, United States, formed in 1987 by Tony Sly and Rory Koff. The band is highly praised in the Skate punk and Hardcore punk scenes, though the band's sound has evolved considerably through its career, taking on a much lighter and poppier brand of melodic punk as the years passed.

The band was first featured on Maximum RocknRoll's 1987 Turn It Around compilation, with the song Gang Way. A year later, the band's debut EP, Let 'em Out, was released through Slap-A-Ham Records.

NUFAN's debut album, Incognito, was released in 1990 through New Red Archives. The band has released a single and one more full-length on this label, until breaking into the mainstream and signing up with Fat Mike's label, Fat Wreck Chords, on 1993. At that year, No Use For a Name released its first record on Fat, The Daily Grind, which turned to be a highly successful album.

In 1995, After the release of Leche Con Carne, their fourth full-length, Chris Shiflett and Matt Riddle joined the band to play Guitar and Bass, respectively. In 1997, after the success of Making Friends, the band went on a worldwide tour through U.S., Europe, Australia, Canada, and Japan.

Chris Shiflett left the band on 1999 to join the successful Foo Fighters, being replaced by Dave Nassie.

The band released their 10th full-length titled Keep Them Confused June 14th, 2005. It takes a more political position than earlier releases.
