Judas Priest And Slipknot Rumored For Ozzfest 2004

According to a reliable industry source, JUDAS PRIEST are "90 percent a go" for this year's Ozzfest, which is tentatively expected to kick off late June/early July. OZZY OSBOURNE, who is recovering from a nasty all-terrain-vehicle crash, will reportedly try to headline the festival once again, although any complications with his recovery may indefinitely postpone his return to the live stage. SLIPKNOT are believed to be in talks to co-headline the festival's second stage with HATEBREED, while DAMAGEPLAN and VELVET REVOLVER are also said to be strong possibilities. Says our source: "The thinking is that not enough people have been coming early so [the festival organizers] may lay off the newer acts and get more established acts for the second stage."

While I'm not a particularly big Slipknot fan, I do agree that they belong on the main stage, whileveteran performers, the new bands such as Damageplan, Velvet Revolver would be good second stage headliners. (probably Hatebreed too, since they aren't very mainstream)

My biggest issue with the second stage is the 15-20 minute sets. I was realy disappointed seeing Chimaira play such a short set last year (only like 5 songs).

Slipknot should not be on second stage they should be first stage and Cradle of Filth should be at Ozzfest again this year, Chevelle if they show up at ozzfest again they need to be kicked in the a$$ for trying to be like Korn too much {GET YOUR OWN MATTERIAL CHEVELLE}also for not learning their lession at Darian lake when nobody even payed attention to them and threw mud at them.Ozzfest is about heavy metal not pansy a$$ punky mix of heavy and sh**. {no offence to those who like punk} I hope Ozzy gets better and stuff cuz ozzfest isent ozzfest without the king of rock and heavy metal. Btw i hope ozzfest 2004 will come back to Buffalo New York We need it

I never really cared for Chevelle, but I thought they played pretty damn well at last year's Ozzfest. But I'm tired of the same bands returning each year anyway - except Rob Zombie when he did his 3 years in a row - he's a damn good performer. Ozzfest needs some new blood, and not some nu blood.

I understand that ozzy has to play on the mainstage and i respect that. He has earned the right to do that. But putting Slipknot on the second stage is a huge mistake. Three years ago they had Disturbed on the the second stage. The crowds got so big that the security couldn't handle it and after a few shows they got bumped up to the main stage. This was after the first came out. This well be after Slipknots 3rd album. There is no way that they would be able to handle Slipknot on the second stage. I agree there needs to be some new blood. We need on the second stage 40 Below Summer, Soil, Mushroomhead, Drowning Pool(with new singer), Chimaira, Killswitch Engage, 36 Crazy Fists, Deamon Hunter, and OTEP to name a few. Opening on the main stage we need Flaw, then Mudvayne, Rammstein, Rob Zombie, and System of a Down. Then to finish the night off Ozzy Osbourne.

P.S. Judas Priest SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

they make a good point bringing energy to second stage early but dont use slip to do it slip shouldnt play in middle of they day their mood would sound better at night send sum sh**ty stuff to second stage that could still attract attention like chevelle honestly they are a heavier hanson they dont know how 2 put on a show and their music sounds like crap but it would draw attention also that (new) drowning pool isnt drowning pool without dave drowning pool rip with dave they want a new band get a new name if they think they can sound as good as dave then they need 2 proove it their place is second stage 4 now.

ANd if they play on the second stage you can get a closer look for less money.... so please put them on the second stage. ANd do Bring Cradle Back!!!! and also (mindless self indulgence ) should be on ozzfest... I know they are not metal... But come on they put Chevelle on the main stage and you all know that Mindless self indulgence is way better than that p***y a$$ band Chevelle!!! they suck ass..........

I love the fact that Ozzfest '04 is going to bring Slipknot back to us Maggots. 1 problem with them on the second stage however. . . EVERYONE WILL DIE!!! Its called the biggest scariest f***ing mosh pit ever. I agree with alot of you with 40 Below on the second stage possibly being the new co-headliners with Hatebreed. And as for some more Mainstage Mayhem. . . How bout some Sevendust. I saw them and ill Nino last week and they f***ing tore the Pagent down!

If you ask me (which no one is) whether or not what band should be on the first or second stage isnt an issue.A big issue to me is why the f*** has ozzfest been on a wednsday for the last 3 years here in pittsburgh.Some of us metalheads have to work on weekdays how bout a friday or saturday date for once.Some of the bands im hoping to see that no one has mentioned is motograter,skinlab,dry kill logic,maybe type-o again.just wish we could have the ozzfest of the late 90's back.

i am happy to hear that a lot of you want to see 40 below summer, i also would like to see korn on the main stage also, but korn won't be there. they were there last year and this year they will be doing a stadium tour. we need mudvayne on the main stage. i can't believe that alot you people don't include flaw , drowning pool, and even deamon hunter. i agree the second stage needs some more life to it but there are many different ways of doing that rather than putting slipknot on the second stage. you can put flaw, 40 below summer, mushroomhead, or even mudvayne as co-headlining the second stage. they could take about 5 less bands on the second stage and extend the set times. also i am getting tired of seeing hatebreed on the bill year after year.

This comment is for chuck, just because they have been out of it for a while doesn't mean that they don't deserve to be there. they are making an album right now that is going to blow our heads off and you think they deserve to be on the second stage. Let me ask you a question. When is the last time that Ozzy put out an album? Should he get bumped to the second stage??????????????

Hell no he is the GODFATHER of Metal, and Slipknot are his children!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

slipknot is an awesome band but i know that there set will be much better with them on the 2nd stage than it would be if they were on main stage... the 2nd stage crowd will become one massive pit where on the main stage a few small pits would happen in the lawn seats.... id much rather be up in front to see slipknot rather than way in back in the seats or the lawn....

I don't care which stage Slipknot is on or if Judas Priest plays or not. I just hope that there will still be an Ozzfest this year. Cuz Ozzy's getting old and with his accident and all, there might not be to many more Ozzfests. I wanna see Slayer on the main stage and American Head Charge or Soilwork on the second stage. All and all, I just hope they have more truely good metal and not just what is popular at the time.

Egos egos egos. Man alive, would everyone please check the actual size of your d***. You all have to realize that you are not the only one at the f***ing concert and not everyone is going to like the same bands. (maybe thats why they have 2 stages????)

I mean sure...a band like Crazy town doesnt fit anywhere in Ozzfest. They were one hit wonders that had nothing to do with metal at all. But bands like Chevelle are pretty good compared to some the bands they have had on the bill in recent years. Yes, i realize I am being hippocritacle with that last comment, but that is one of the more obvious of truths if you think about it. Im just saying, quit b****ing about the little things that you hate about bands and focus on the really sh**ty ones. Sure Slipknot isnt neccessarily like all the old school metal, but if there was no change....music would get dull really fast. And so what if they are popular. Does that take anything away from the music?....because there are more people out there listening to the same things you are? Believe me...there is alot of sh**tier music around than what you all are complaining about.

IF ITS HEAVY...LET IT ROCK!!!

Seriously this Slipknot bull sukz!!!! They put on one of the best shows I've ever seen in my life! I've been going to the ozzfest concerts for a couple years now and I wanted to know why they haven't had Slipknot on the main stage already. 2003 was a great year for Ozzfest with Cradle of Filth, Korn, Nothingface, Disturbed, Marilyn Manson ... c'mon the show f***in' rocked. But let's face it with the addition of Judas Priest and Slipknot the show would be monumental for 2004.
As far as some of the other comments on here about Ozzy you guys are nuckin futz! I'm only 23 but if bands like Ozzy and Alice Cooper, Kiss and Megadeath hadn't been around then we never would have had the bands that headline at Ozzfest today. So for you morons out there that don't realize those bands are there to pay homage to Ozzy for his impact on the music industry ... you have no buisness even going to the great shows that this man puts on. You wan't to cut down on him, then lets see you put on a better show .... yeah, that's what I thought.

Slipknot on the 2nd stage will be pure brutality. a great idea but not very smart. Everyone will be killed. and so what if they are on 2nd stage. In my opinion the greatest shows i have seen have been in 1-3000 capacity venues. You are closer to the band. and by tyhe end of the day, you have had a good f***in time. So whats the f***ing difference. As fare as this year goes. Bring back Cradle of f***ing Filth. They f***ing rule. Judas Preist sounds good to me. Hatebreed and Damageplan will kick a$$ too. But what i would really like to see this year is Type O Negative, there new Cd is awesome. They deserve a shot more than anyone. And whoever disses Ozzy disses Metal in general. If you go to OzzFest looking for some backstreet boy wannabe (Linkin Park) whining about how his girlfriend dumped him or a bunch of idiots with facepaint and thats all you care about. YOu are simply not a metalhead. Go back to f***ing school and listen to some Pantera or Slayer. Get wiht the f***ing program.

You all worry too much. Slipknot is so f***ing HUGE, that there is no way they will be on second stage. Although when I seen Ozzfest in '99 w/ Slayer, Rob Zombie, etc., Slipknot Headlined the second stage, but they were not that big yet. A great Band for Second stage would be Celtic Frost www.celticfrost.com/, who are getting back together with their best line-up (Warrior, Ain, + To mega Therion/ into the Pandemonium era members) + A member of Apollyon's Sun (Tom Warriors newer Band.) Another Great act would be Jucifer (a super heavy 2 piece duo- girl and guy) who every time I see them get Heavier and Heavier. They are at http://www.jucifer.com/.
I never got to see Celtic Frost back in the day, it would be awesome. And Jucifer I seen 5x, and they get better and better. You would have the best of the old and new. Ozzfest last year seemed like a repeat of the same old sh**. Most of those bands have played there already. Also check out Dave Grhols new album Probot, which is collaberations between Dave and all of his favourite Black Metal/Punk singers. Artists include King Diamond, Chronos- of Venom, Tom Warrior- Celtic Frost, Lemmy- of Motorhead, guys from Dri, COC, Sepultura, etc... Any of these guys would be perfect for the second stage. f*** bands like Chevelle and sh**!!!

It is understandable that none of the younger people out there want to see judas priest. They didnt listen to them cause they were too young. Back in the day , i was a huge priest/maiden fan. that was the 80's. its 2004 now and i think the headliner, if ozzy cant make it,should be a newer band that is popular with everyone. priest will be good if they are on the tour but i do think it should be a band that is up to date with todays metal ........thanks

Ok, there are a lot of good bands to choose from, and no matter how you look at it, Slipknot is only a last or second to last slot on main stage which would be the same amount of time they would get Headlining second stage. I think they will be more at home on the Second stage. As for the main stage, they perfect Ozzfest would be In no specific order, Ozzy, Rammstein, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest(since Rob Halford is back), Disturbed, Korn, Rob Zombie, and Zack Wyldes Black Label Society. Second stage Headliner Slipknot/Cradle of Filth , nothing face, voivod, OTEP, Mushroom Head, etc etc. I think this would be the ultimate set-up for Ozzfest, it would be worth three times the price of the ticket. That show would be absolutely ridiculous, It would be getting back enough into the roots of great bands while also exploring and bringing out the best of the new bands of the age.

The perfect Ozzfest right there folks.

Slipknot is not worth putting on main stage, they will do a healine on second stage, some of the bigger bands, wont take second stage and will only take main stage. If Slipknot goes they will headline second stage and get the same amount of time as the first 2 main stage acts. There is no point of having them on main stage, that is just taking away from another good band that could be there.

Also, Meshuggah is crap, all they do is scream, it is death metal not rock or metal. It has no place in being second to last on Second stage.

Megadeath is also coming with a reunion type tour, it would be great to get this line-up
Ozzy
Rob Zombie
Judas Priest
Zack Wylde's BLS
Iron Maiden
Megadeath
Disturbed for the first stage. I think that would be great. That is the kind of music they need to get back too, let all the nu-metal be on the second stage if anywhere.

If anyone is going to headline the Concert besides Ozzy it should either be Rob Zombie or Black Label Society. They are the other best two alternative. If they dont want to do it, I would always settle for Judas Priest. I am 17 and still listen to Priest, the old stuff anyway, all the new crap that Ripper guy did sucks. Who cant love Livin after Midnight, Breaken the Law, You got another thing comming, Painkiller, Nightcrawler, etc etc. They have so many great songs, and they just sound like the perfect band. I am sure they will sound the same because Halford had his own band up until the time he rejoined. Halford was good by himself, and sounds exactly the same as before. I think if Judas Priest, Ozzy, and
Zack Wyldes BLS are there it is worth it just for that.

O-k. Sarah Sadistic's list would make a great show, but it's like no Ozzfest that's ever been or ever will be. Get real. Ozzfest has always been more nu-metal with some good "real metal" and old-school headliners. Relative to last years, a return to that would be an improvement.

As for Slipknot not being big enough for the second stage - regardless of what you think about them, they will have 3 albums out and deserve the main stage. Wake up and look at the bands who have already done the main stage with far fewer albums or credentials.

on the second stage their should be coal chamber, union underground, shadows fall, killswitch engage, endo, chimaira, spineshank, in flames, lamb of god, and powerman 5000. ozzfest should also be longer, last years was supposed to be 14 hours long, 10am-12pm, but it ended at ten, and ozzy didnt even play all the songs on his list. it should start at 8am and go to 12pm. the more the better, right?

First of all lollapalooza is for pissants who dont know anything about good music. Secondly, there is no way Deftones can be at ozzfest, let them go to lollapalooza, even though they may be good, they are not what the crowd is looking for. And for those of you who think that Judas Priest being at Ozzfest is a joke, you have to be some of the most ignorant people I have ever seen.
What can be better than the Judas Priest that started it all back in 73' They still have the same ability as before if not more, Rob Halford didnt lose any talent since he went off on his own, and I think they should be the ones Headlining the whole thing if Ozzy cant make it.

I mean lets look at the facts here people, Slipknot just isnt going to be worth a main stage act. If they get on main stage they will only get 45 minutes, because they will be the opener or the second act. If they headline the second stage, the still get 45 minutes, and allow for more unruly moshing in the pits. If you place them on main stage you are just taking away from another more talented band being up there.

Just face the fact that Slipknot is probably going to be on second stage, just so that the people attending the concert get more for their money with another big name band on the first stage.

I think everyone needs to stop complaining about who is going to be there and everything, because if you dont like what is going on, dont go, its that simple.

Go to lollapaloser then man, doesnt bother me. And also for anyone who thinks that I said Judas Priest should headline over all they are wrong. If ozzy is there I said they should, only because Rob Zombie is not going to be there, If he were going to be there, and ozzy wasnt going to make it, Then Rob Zombie should headline. But since Rob Zombie isnt going to be there, if Ozzy i unable to do the show, I see no reason why Judas Priest should not headline. They have plenty of great songs they could play, that a lot of people know, and some people dont know. Dont forget it is not the Judas Priest of the 90's, they were bad, it is the Original Judas Priest with Rob Halford. Also instead of Priest, if ozzy cant make it after Rob Zombie, Zack Wyldes band should be next, then priest. But I dont think Zombie or Zack Wylde BLS will be there this year, which is unfortunate. The first one I went to was the one with Ozzy, Rob Zombie, System of a Down, BLS, P.O.D, and Ademma, Ademma really stunk up the show though, no one was into it. Kind of like Chevelle last yea.

I think this will be the best Ozzfest to date.I really hope Ozzy does every show,granted he'll be hurting but he's a soldier of metal like Emmit Smith (of the cowboys/cardinals ) he'll keep playing hurt.But I think he should quit while he's on top.Keep giving us music but work at home,Ozzy I love ya,Fan from Delaware.See you at Ozzfest At the tweeter in Camden,NJ.

I dont know who these people are who are putting metallica and deftones at ozzfest. They only way metallica belongs there is if they play their old stuff, and Deftones are just not metal, and dont deserve to be there. Second of all, Judas Priest and Ozzy wil be the best there, without a doubt, unless of course Rob Zombie is there, then it is a toss up between them. If all three of those guys go, just seeing them alone is worth the price of admission. All of you complaining about stuff should shut up, and not go if you have a problem. You dont like it, you can shove it and stay home.

If they are at second stage ppl can get close to them and meet them. Why would you pay a whole crap load of money for pit tickets just to get close to them, When you can buy cheap tickets and get closer to them than u could in the pit !!!

The new line up will be (I know. Ozzy is my uncle); 1. Queens of stonage, 2. P.O.D.(First half of tour) replaced by Perfect Circle (Second half, the first night of the N.J. appearence), 3. A risen from the dead "Alice in Chains" & a replacement of a passed on member who will rock the metal world and cause many, many rumors. 4. Followed by a duet clash of Rob Zombie and Mr. M. Manson (Who are collaberating as we speak on the album.). 5. An absolute contractual 57 minutes of AC/Friggin DC. A twenty three minute hysterical movie (Finished last night) of "Master Sgt. Ozzy" and his platoon of pimple faced headbangin soldiers in Iraq and on the hunt for osama Dirtbag bin laden. 6. OZZY
Moreover, In Ozzy's familar play on words. He has clearly stated he wants to pay homage to good old music as well as new. OZZFEST2004 will play out as follows; OZZFEST 4 THEELDERS will include the above bands. OZZFEST 4 THEYOUNGINS will include all those wanna be bands you kids think perform music. The youngins concert will play on the night before the elder concert. This will be announced (Approx.) April 15 th., 2004 in Ozzy's (Spoof) post war State of the union address to the Nation of Heavy Metal. Look for a sneak preview on The MTV's Last season premiere. It will be playing on the T.V. in the background (The last 5 minutes of the show). If you record the episode and turn the volume up during replay. You will be sure to pee u'r pants and find that this is all true.

First of all, as others have said, you owe respect to Ozzy so give it to him whether you stay for his show or not, I don't know why you wouldn't stay but that is your choice. Anyway, I will not claim this line up to be 100% confirmed, although it seems very likelyl right now, but this is what Ozzfest 2004 is shaping up to be according to information from a reliable source who has been correct in the past about this:
Main:
Ozzy
Judas Priest
Slayer
The Darkness
Dimmu Borgir
Superjoint Ritual
Black Label Society
Second:
Slipknot
Hatebreed
Unearth
Every Time I Die
Lamb of God
Atreyu
Bleeding Through
and it has been said In Flames, Fear Factory, and Lacuna Coil have been in talks about doing it. There's a reason why Slipknot is on second stage and not main. If you've forgotten they did main in 2001 so yes it has been established that they deserve main...they have already been there. They are on second stage, as some of you have realized, because they can tear sh** up with nastier pits playing for roughly the same amount of time as they would on main and it leaves other spots open on main. You get to have BLS, SJR, Dimmu, Slayer, Priest, and Ozzy on main, and personally I don't mind The Darkness. So, if you don't like it, just quit your b****ing and don't go and if you do, then go and have the time of your life, but either way just recognize that Ozzy is the reason why all this is possible. This is the best line up for any year of the fest IMO.

Come on People open your ears and realize that slipknot isn't that good. I thought they were decent a few years ago cause I thought they were all hardcore but now I've realized that there is alot better metal out there. Judas Priest first of all is the creators of our metal if it wasn't for them you wouldn't know what metal sounds like. So please don't insult the gods of metal. Slipknot deserves second stage for one reason........ NO ONE LIKE THEM ANYMORE! I'll admit they USED to be good but now they are just bland and basically repeat what they did off their first album. Ozz Fest has to have Slayer though. I might be a huge Priest fan but Slayer took the foundations Priest made and put a new twist on it. Lets see what else can I b**** about? umm wheres Hammerfall on this tour. They most likely will be the next big thing in metal but I guess they were simply over looked. Now not all metal has to be Heavy if people haven't realized yet but I guess not alot of people have. Music envolves singing and not random screaming into a mic to make up for the ability to not carry a tune. Lets hear some Megaherz and Rammstein and have a huge party people!

Thats it I'm done b****ing and I hope some people take into consideration that Slipknot actually isn't that damn good and some less heavy music is better then just yelling into a mic.

Thank you and goodnight

If these forums are here for metal fans then you clearly do not belong here since your taste in music has very little metal in it. You can call the bands you like metal if you wish, you could call Britney Spears, Korn, or Mogwai metal but it doesn't make it so. Just because your only exposure to metal is from Pantera making it into the mallcore 15 year old punk scene with their 80's stolen over simplified riffs doesn't make you a listener of metal. Sure you may be able to name drop a couple of the most popular metal bands, but are you even able to tell the difference of which are metal and which aren't? Sorry to disappoint you but your precious Korn collection is not metal in the slightest bit. I definitely would never break in to steal your teenage angst music collection as so much as to break in to gut you. Metal is dying thanks for childish punk teenages like you who are so anxious to call anything metal so that they can say they like metal. Hail the return of true metal. Korn, Slipknot, and Nu-metal is on it's decline. The victory shall be ours. True metal is now in battle with metalcore. Grab your axes and ride into battle, oh brothers of metal.

Unstable? I may very well be. Eviserating nu-metal kids with Pantera shirts on? I may very well be. Connecting my lead pipe with the faces of Korn kiddies? I may very well be. Insanity clouding my metal judgement. False. I live and breathe metal. Korn and Slipknot are not metal. You are not metal nor do you know anything about the subject.

Thanks Chimaira is the gayest band ever....if posting one's taste in music on this message board is stupid, why did you post under the name chimaira is the gayest band ever? I didn't realize this message board was for writing my thesis on the decay of metal music...which I can send to you if you want. I understand that everyone has their opinions...but seriously if you think that posting our opinions is so gay...why post yours?

Clearly your craving for c** in your mouth has not ceased since you continue to suck. Without even taking the time to read your post, which i won't because I already know I am on a higher level of existence than you are, I know you are a very troubled and confused homosexual overweight child sitting using his mother's AOL account to read about "cool" music on metalunderground.com where you think people will accept your pathetic waste of a life form from the MTV style posts you make attempting to show how your opinions match the ones of the cool children. You fail. And by the way, what I post is fact, not opinion. I am metal. You are not. You have zero authority over any thoughts, facts, or opinions in any area involving in the slightest bit metal (not that this site has much to do with metal).

Fine, you win. I've come to the conclusion that you are actually the late GG Allin. You are sitting in a great abyss that is twice the size of the sun with a notebook hooked up to a nice 1.5 Mbps dsl net hook-up and you refuse to believe that the type of "metal" that you listen to is just like yourself to the rest of the world: Dead and buried, never to return.

Which brings me to my 64000 dollar question: what is metal? This question goes into a special list to join other great unanswerable queries such as:

What is the meaning of life?
Is there are god?
Did OJ really do it?

A straight answer for the question "what is metal" will never be given that everyone can accept. So I say to everyone who reads this:
Love your music, its all we have left.
Don't succumb to hatred and violence, it only leads to sadness.

I yield this battle of words and knoledge. I conclude this post with the happy notion that, in my opinion and the opinion of many, many others, that Ozzfest 2004 will be one of the best yet and I'll be their having a great time. Wearing one of my 3 Pantera shirts, waiting to be eviserated. However, that won't stop me from loving the music I listen to.

The most 12798 popular metal bands are on www.metal-archives.com with a few excusions that are explained. Other than very local underground bands in your hometown (which in most cases are not metal either), if you've heard of any band and its not on there, it is not metal. Metal mostly fall under the following sub-genres: death, black, doom/gothic, power, thrash/speed, traditional, and progressive each sounding different each with their own definitions that make them fall into their own sub-genre. Since these genres sound so different from each other, it is impossible to give metal one simple definition. A question of say "what is power metal" would be vastly easier to answer since most power metal has a distinct sound, use of scales, song stucture, guitar distortion timbre, chord progressions, lyrical content, overall aesthetic, etc. Obviously bands bend and mix these different "requirements" of these genres but they still have enough of the specific requirements to remain metal.

Mind you, that is years and years of learning "what metal is" summed up in a webpage and a paragraph.

Oh, and there is no meaning of life (scientific laws have no "greater" meaning), there is no god, and OJ did do it.

I love OZZY! I just hope he performs alright, poor guy is starting to get old and show it. I would like to see SYSTEM OF A DOWN rock the stage this year! They are awesome! Cradle of Filth does a good show too. And sorry to all you SLIPKNOT fans, but they can stay at second stage, you get away with acting a little more crazy at second stage, maybe you should think about that!! And I would be soooo happy if OTEP came back, both times they have been I missed it both times because we were late getting there, but if they came back I KNOW I would be on time for sure!!!!!

Priest rules, Knot rules, Slayer rules. All you who thinks otherwise sure as hell must listen to that pop/ alternative sh+t like Linkin Park, new Korn, Limp Bizkit, Chevelle, Disturbed, The Darkness, etc. These bands sound like some American idol winners and you know what, I'm here to listen to rock music. Not no boybands in disguise. You want crappy pop music, go to an Nsync concert you muthaf***as.......

Last years Ozzfest was a joke. Pop sensations Korn Chevelle and Disturb co-headlining? Gimme a break. Mainstream success and albums sold don't make a band better. Now this year there is actually some hope of actually having a good Ozzfest (which rarely happens). Judas Priest bringing some older favor, Slayer causing havoc, and of course the return of Slipknot. You mutha f***as who think these bands suc can eat a c** burrito.

I've never really been to Ozzfest, but I think SlipKnoT should be on the main stage. They should also bring KoRn in the mix, but last I head of them they were over in Austrailia.
