      I'll go for Chiodos, Dear and the Headlights and Bad Religion, but I'm really unimpressed. I'll wait for the full lineup though.

      how can anyone say "oh well, where's the punk?" but complain about bands such as bad religion, nofx, anti-flag, flogging molly, ltj, bouncing souls, gallows a.s.o.? what better punk than BR or NOFX is out there? but it's true that there are a lot of shitty emo pop bands on the list... BR should take the time to record their new album instead of playing 30 minutes on this tour's shows... or tour with NOFX for a real allstar tour *dream*

Yeah I agree Warped used to be about all the GOOD punk, ska and other skate bands getting together and playing kickass shows, but now we have to wade through a sea of emos and abercrombie wearing posers. Its a sad sad day in music
      i'll just destroy the emo and scene kids in teh mosh pit!

      I wonder what Against Me! will be doing this year instead? It's about time they left this shit.

      Ok so I'm from Australia and don't know that much about the warped tour. It looks ok because of Flogging Molly, Anti-Flag, The Bouncing Souls, NOFX and Bad Religion. But can someone please explain to me what the **** bands like brokencyde and silverstein are doing on this tour. I thought this was meant to be a punk tour. Even though I wouldnt be going anyway, this really dissapoints me

      I love Warped Tour for it's ridiculously named bands. I would only go to see Thrice, nothing else catches my interest. But last time I went to Warped (some 4 years ago) I remember Thrice were set to play first, even before they let everyone in. So I saw them play a song and a half.

      can ppl stop complaing about there being emo bands up there? there arent any, at least that I am aware of
      pyritmann
      they really should add in a more diverse selection on bands,, like this is only punk/emo/metalcore basically... there's a lot of good bands up there, though im surprised norma jean isnt there after they co- headlined this year... if they added some metal and like breaking benjamin type rock on there they'd get a much larger crowd i think Jefree star??? are you kidding me? seriously what sane person would go see some pink tranny sing high notes by squeezing his balls.. i hope that is not the future of music.

      Checked. I'm only going if Bouncing Souls are at my date. There's other bands that I'd watch if I was there though.

      Gallows, Saosin, Thrice, Silverstien, The Devil Wears Prada, Scaring Kids Scaring kids, and Flogging molly, ftw >.>

      There is a serious lack of punk. I mean, flogging molly, anti flag, bad religion, bouncing souls, LTJ, NOFX, Big D, theyre all good, punk dudes. But alexisonfire? every avenue? jeffree ****ing starr? are you ****ing kidding me? maybe the scene kids will get beat up by the anti flag fans. thatd be awesome. then jeffree starr wouyld have no fans. fingers crossed.

      Because you don't listen to enough un-talented, mainstream, terrible musicians who can't hold a candle up to the soul of the 90's, the originality of the 80's, or the musicianship of the 70's. right? Seriously, Warped tour is a joke. There is annualy two, MAYBE three talented bands (see Thrice, Flogging Molly, Saosin), with a slew of the dregs of the punk industry who are desperate to ride the coattails of the few decent bands. If you're over the age of 15 and you go to Warped tour, you must have bathed in asbestos as a child.

      On the good side: Anti-Flag and Bad Religion (kind of), Big D and the Kids Table, Bouncing Souls, Flogging Molly (a little), Less Than Jake, NOFX, and Streetlight Manifesto On the shitty side: The other 25 bad bands plus all the scene kids...

      Sounds like a kinda weak lineup. Really, the only bands I want to see are NOFX, Bad Religion, and Flogging Molly. May not go this year.

      lol @ whoever said "music has evolved since zeppelin, hendrix, etc."... you forgot the capital D in front of the word "evolved".

      I think this'll be the first Warped Tour I'll go to Of course, unlike the rest of this thread, I want to expand my musical horizon

      Seems like an Improvement from last year. Even though I only liked a couple of the bands, it was still a good time.
      David_Bowie=GOD
      is it just me or does warped tour get worse every year? I might not even go this year, every year its less punk bands and more emo bands.
      TMF128
      Sick, I might go this year if I get the chance, I want to see NOFX, Bad Religion, and Flogging Molly mostly.

      Some good ska bands on there but other than that Warped Tour has gone to shit since all these emo fags started getting booked.
      Lopez72
      seriously? this is like, terrible. Anti Flag, Bad Religion, and Thrice are the only bands worth seeing. I thought warped tour was about punk music? Not all these emo, scene bands.
