NOFX, Bad Religion. Flogging Molly, and maybe Senses Fail for my own liking. Nowhere near as heavy as it has been, more back to basics.

To be honest...I'd rather stay home and watch an entire episode of "Saved By The Bell" rather than attending this festival. I'm not bashing on the bands or anything but, none of them grab my interest.

LOL I heard the Black Tide kids (I say that since they are so young can kinda be d***s if thats the case then they will for sure get kicked off of Warped early) Warped is the one concert tour I know of that if you start sh** or cause drama you get kicked off of it or called out on it real quick,Looks like a good lineup,and I wil def be going to this years,and I would go to mayhem fest if I knew more about it,I heard last year you basically payed one flat fee and could sit anywhere you want like warped which if thats true I will consider that since it would be nice to be front row to see a band like Slayer if their indeed on it.

Yea... I'm not really a punk guy anyway, but this doesnt even seem like many of the really good punk bands. I'm not really psyched for any tours that have been announced, hopefully Ozzfest sucks less this year or Sounds is good. Doubtful, but i can dream, cant i?

As for Black Tide, i saw them at Ozzfest that first year and thought they were ok, and then picked up their album and was sorely disappointed. Maybe with some maturity but... yea. Suckfest now.

1 good band. Flogging Molly will wipe the drunken butts with every other band on this line-up. Yeah, I think I'll stay home and masturbate instead. I'll get more enjoyment out of it, and it'll be a whole lot cheaper.

I'm with Wiggles/Bruno on this one. I've never seen NOFX but I've heard they put on a bad a$$ show. Flogging Molly... Of course! Bad Religion - it's been a while but could they ever suck? I've never heard of Gallows before but i'm willing to give it a shot. Black Tide was a total joke at Mayem last year.

Brokencyde. Just heard them. I'm at a f***ing loss here. How does this exist? My faith in music is shaken once again and the last time it was Enuff Z'Nuff. I need whiskey, weed and Sabbath. Hopefully it can wash away this foul taste. In the words of Eddie Morgan Blake, "God help us all..."
