The "all access" pass for Fat Wreck Chords' 25 Year Tour is apparently a photo of Bill Cosby. A variety of women that work at the label have posted on Facebook that they are "fucking pissed" this happened.

We recently chatted with Fat Mike and Erin Burkett about the 25th anniversary of Fat Wreck Chords.
I think Rise Against is the only band that never really partied much. That’s the label I want. A label with a bunch of drunk, drug using, non-religious fuck ups. Those are the people who will always play music because they love it.
