Survival of the Fattest is one of the many periodic samplers put out by Fat Wreck Chords with the aim of enticing consumers to acquaint themselves with the label's roster by offering a great deal of music from as many of their artists as possible, at a very low price. As a listen, Survival of the Fattest is somewhat inconsistent, since not all of the bands on the label are at the same level, but there are quite a few catchy moments that will most likely interest punk and ska fans in checking out some of these groups further. Some of the artists here include NOFX, Good Riddance, Lag Wagon, Frenzal Rhomb, No Use for a Name, SNuff, and Diesel Boy.
