Dunno if I see any highlights on the list--Rancid, I guess, by virtue of the fact that band's sense of history goes back at least to the Carter-Thatcher era. Would have endorsed Vendetta Red, till I heard the album; same goes for The Ataris and Poison the Well, who should have stopped at the name. I do know some 14-year-olds who love Dropkick Murphys, but what do they know? They didn't recognize the name Joe Strummer, much less why his death was such a big deal ("What's the big deal, dude?" they asked, little shits). Says here in my latest Rolling Stone or maybe FHM that S.T.U.N.'s among the Hot Picks to Click at Warped; Christ, if this is your best, a Rage Against the Machine rip without the lefty politics and engaging front man and primo guitarist and everything else interesting about that defunct band, then by what criteria do you judge the worst? They shoot at you from the stage? Or just sound like A.F.I.? Anyone says that's a good band is a relative or just collects a DreamWorks paycheck. Goth-metal, the worst thing I've heard since the doctor said, "Mr. Jablonski, the test results came back positive." Is this thing on?
