f***ing fallout boy...

God awful Panic! at the Disco.....

This music gives people terminal diseases.

But on the otherhand: Slayer, KSE and Mastadon are probably worth the price of admission alone...

And the other bands on the list aren't quite so fantastic but they're high energy live(High on Fire, and Sick of it All especially)......

I'd go if the Atlantic ocean wasn't in my f***ing way.

lol, bloody oceans need to learn their place! :P

I think I heard a Panic! song that I didn't mind once...other than that, they suck almost as much as Fallout Boy.

I'd definitely go to see Slayer, KsE and Mastadon, though. and I certainly wouldnt mind catching Sick of it All live. high on fire are another band I need to check out, when I get around to it.
