While certainly not a metal tour, the 2006 Vans Warped Tour does feature a handful of relevant bands including Bullet For My Valentine, Underoath, From Autumn To Ashes and headliners Helmet.

Billboard.com reports: The 2006 Vans Warped Tour will feature performances by AFI, Saves The Day, Against Me, Helmet, Less Than Jake, Say Anything, Senses Fail, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, the Academy Is, Underoath, the Living End and, as previously reported, Rise Against, Thursday, Motion City Soundtrack, From First To Last and NOFX.

The 12th edition of the tour will kick off June 15 in Columbia, Md., and run through Aug. 13 in Montreal. Tickets for some shows begin going on sale Wednesday (March 15). During this pre-sale, tickets will be sold for just over $20 (including a double-disc tour compilation CD); the ticket price will rise to about $25 afterward.

Among the other artists that will perform on at least a portion of the tour are the Buzzcocks, Anti-Flag, the Germs, Bouncing Souls, From Autumn To Ashes, Mute Math, Reggie & the Full Effect, Bullet For My Valentine, Silverstein and the Sounds.

The 2005 edition of the trek featured the Offspring, My Chemical Romance, Thrice and Hawthorne Heights, among others.

NOFX, Less than Jake and AFI have my respect just for bringing something new to a stale genre.

From Authumn to Ashes have to be the most technical, heavy, interesting and least punk band on the bill....Senses Fail are snotty little elitist punks though so f*** them....And Saves the Day is emo bullsh** garbage that makes Weezer sound like the best band ever....

Every other band on the tour falls somewhere between decent and total whale sh**.

Helmet...it's almost worth it just for them. NOFX were pioneers in modern punk...and put on quite a good show...and c'mon...Joan Jett and the Blackhearts...who doesn't want to hold their lighters up to "Crimson and Clover" or pump their fist in the air to "I Love Rock n' Roll?" Hmmmm...did Joan Jett ever have a hit that wasn't a cover? (just a small knock on her...because in actuality she is quite a good guitar player...Dave Mustaine called her the female Chuck Berry). Anyway...I'm not saying I would go...but I could see myself hanging out for a few bands on that list. Yeah, yeah, yeah...I know that makes me suck...and I guess I'll have to live with that.

That's why it's on here. Clearly not for the rest of the band on the bill.

from autum to ashes: emocore/screamo/ridiculous
underoath=every other hardcore crossover killswitch wannabe
bullet for my valentine=sh**
helmet= ok i'll give you helmet is pretty cool

In a post that was quickly deleted by Dave Mustaine on the MEGADETH Message Board, the following was posted:
Droogies!

I am very, very, VERY happy to announce that I have finally decided on the final line-up for this year's Gigantour! I know you Droogs have been going ape-sh** with lists and such, and I have been paying attention! And as you all know, I found God recently as well. In the past, I did something stupid; I refused to play on the same bill as a band of current devil worshipers. It was a foolish thing to do, and as of now, I am now putting that behind me! Regardless or religion, I have picked this year's Gigantour line-up of the best of the best! Yeah, a lot of other bands are tied up with other tours and such, but this is going to be a great tour!

Main Stage:
MEGADETH
VENOM
ANTHRAX
DIAMOND HEAD

Second Stage:
OVERKILL
TESTAMENT
AMEN

This is going to be a great tour and I and the rest of the bands can't wait to see you on The Killing Road!

MSGD!

Besides, when it comes down to it, they're on tour, living it up playing music, while you're just another guy on a forum hating on them but secretly wishing you could have their lives.
