They've done Taste of Chaos, and Ozzfest twice. They're on a big fest type tour every year, it's for exposure.

Warped tour...??? I hate the Warped Tour, it's for kids who are too intimidated by Ozzfest because they think only satanists go to Ozzfest. Definitely for a less hardcore audience. I'd probably fall asleep at the Warped tour, especially when NoFX plays, god they're annoying and sh@#$.

They're able to do it because they have that melodic element in their music that makes them able to appeal to more crowds than just metal.

I really enjoyed their Ferret self title (remastered was worth it) and AOJB....Leech was the better vocalist, though Jones is no slouch.

I streamed the new one and had to pass though, while End of Heartache was a bit too catchy-poppy(I still liked enough of it) something about their latest just went too far for me.

Throwdown was just added to headline Warped Tour's second stage. I feel f***ing retarded for wanting to go to see these two bands. I don't know if I'll go though, don't really like any of the other bands that are coming to Chicago

This tour confuses me! Are these bands becoming less metal or is Warped becoming more metal? It's like the "is the glass half empty or half full" question!

I thought they were good live but they're definitely missing a lot without Adam D. right now. Pat Lachman definitely held his own but Adam D. needs to be there.

It sonds to me like most of you people are close minded about music. There are some sweet hardcore bands on Warped Tour. Kse is pretty good, and they will be playing with Norma Jean, Haste The Day, As I Lay Dying, Still Remains, Underoath, The Chariot, The Fall Of Troy, Maylene And The Sons of Disaster, and Throwdown. I don't know what your talkin about, but that is a SICK Hadcore lineup, and Im guessing all hall will break loose in the mosh pits for those bands. And no offense to metaheads, HXC kids will KILL THE CRAP ou of a metalhead.

LLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLL ^^^ You're hilarious! The only bands that I like at Warped Tour are Throwdown and Killswitch Engage, Still Remains is okay. And I'm not being close minded I just don't like the other bands. I've seen Norma Jean, AILD, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster live and I didn't like them. That's not being close minded. And how the hell do hardcore kids "KILL THE CRAP ou of a metalhead"? You don't think it would depend on the person? Dumbass.

when killswitch brings in songs like to the sons of man and other good songs into their set...and puts out a cd which tops alive or just breathing...ill pay attention to them, now they basically are a step away from gel-ing their hair infront of their faces and putting on girl pants and sh** liek that.

i remember reading a revolver from like 2005 it had velvet revolver on it if anyone cares...but in one section it had adam saying something about emo kids always crying and sh** like that...now look at them. bands come and go i guess

there is only one hardcore band on that list, Andrew. the rest are metalcore or screamo. and as i lay dying, haste the day and maylene are the only other decent bands there. i don't like throwdown but i don't think they suck unlike all the other bands.

and to take back metal, dude they are NO where near that

I'm with Diamond Oz. I saw them at Ozzfest a few summers ago and I didn't even recognize their sound. Howard Jones cannot sing. They're definitely a studio band, but they're a good studio band. I enjoy all their ALBUMS.

Andrew are u f***ing crazy none of the bands u mentioned are Hardcore Punk, NONE, except throwdown in my opinion. I might just go to see KSE, and Bad Religion. And DeathInEye every band has their off days live, plus u have to realize half these bands are sh** faced out of their minds.
