The Punk Rock Museum will open in Vegas on January 13

We’ve got a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. There’s a Country Music Hall of Fame. A hip hop hall of fame is being built. Why not a punk rock museum?

Fat Mike of NOFX, along with a collective of punk rock experts and obsessives (the Punk Rock Collective), have put together a 12,000 square-foot facility at 1422 Western Avenue, right next to a strip club (Little Darlings, if you’re a Vegas person) in the downtown area. When it opens on January 13, 2023, visitors will find the following:

  • Artifacts from five decades of punk (Devo’s “energy dome” helmets, a green chainsaw from Sum 41, Deborah Harry’s Vultures t-shirt, etc.)
  • The Wall of Insignificant and Unknown Bands that shows how far and wide punk has spread.
  • The Jam Room where we’ll be able to play the actual guitars through the actual amps from bands like Rise Against, NOFX, Pennywise, and more.
  • Daily tours by members of NOFX, Suicidal Tendencies, Fishbone, and many others.
  • A tattoo shop where you can get inked by Fletcher of Pennywise, Mike from TSOL, or Brian from Bouncing Souls
  • A wedding chapel

The face/ambassador will be Toronto’s own punk rock legend, Talli Osbourne.

Pre-sale bundles are available now. Read more about what’s happening here.
