I thought WARPED was a stricktly alternative/punk show.They do have the occasional hip hop or rap performer but people don't realize Hip Hop and american Punk both started right around the same time in the same place CBGB's in new york all those years ago.In any event it may be good to see what happen's with them branching out.

Believe it or not I know a guy who got into hardcore and metal by being a fan of the Offspring....

He went to their shows when they were still pretty unknown (early and mid 90's) he ended up seeing bands like snapcase, dropkick murphys and hatebreed (not a fan of hatebreed myself but theres a point to this) and now he's into grind, metalcore and death metal bands and weirdly he has the offspring to thank...

What I'm getting to is: If this tour does well with heavier bands on it, there maybe more fans getting into bands we like, supporting those bands who can pay to make their next record or even get signed to a major....Most of the bands on this bill suck cat shiit, but like deathbringer said, some bands can be "gateway" bands like pot is a "gateway" drug.

The tour is better this year than some years (i.e. when Papa Roach, Eminem, and Snoop were on the bill).

I didn't think the Transplants were gpoing to be on the tour this year, I thought Rancid were working on their new album?

I care about punk because it's an offshoot of metal. That and I happen to like it. I like almost every kind of music, metal being my main love. I listen to Raavi Shankar and Cream also, are you going to yell at me about that?
