      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

      holy shit if less than jake streetlight big d bad religion nofx and antiflag aren't in dc. i will cry. alot.

      Anti-flag, Bad Religion, AKAs, Ataris, NOFX, POS.... yeah, I'll be going if they all come to Houston. They're worth the price of admission and even the major hassle of wading through a sea of Hot Topic clad, spoon-fed, oxygen thieving adolescent (and adult) jackasses armed with daddy's charge card. As for people commenting about how much the line-up, warped tour and even punk- with its numerous genres- suck: why are you here? If its not your scene then you're the bigger jackass for reading articles dealing with the punk world- and then commenting on them! If you're upset because Hall & Oates or Lionel Richie aren't coming then don't go. Start your own tour for everyone to call sh!tty. Do many or most of the bands suck? IMO yeah, I'm more old school punk but I'm not close-minded. Maybe everyone here thinks YOU suck. So keep your "you suck" to yourself. 'cause you suck.

      worst line-up ive ever seen. period. Black Tide is the best band on their by far and they are like 12 and only have 1 album worth of material to play. so if I went i'd be there for about 30 minutes.

      Wow, no one I'm even remotely interested in seeing. That's a first for Warped Tour, I'm kinda disappointed.

      the tour 02 was freaking amazing.. glad to see NOFX on the bill ;] gd ol' NOFX
      gr1170
      brokencyde.....seriouslly???? Because I would be in the same town as them I will not be going. There was a time when even terrible bands could still be considered performing an art, even if it was contrived and done for money. What has happened to music?
      badreligion17
      the only good bands are Bad Religion, Anti-Flag,and NoFX but i'll prolly go since i haven't seen BR live yet. and wow underoath and 3oh3 they are really gay

      that'd be sweet, you know Streetlight manifesto is gonna be in orlando in February?
      MetalorDIE
      warped tour is so gay, especially when u have poser bands like I set my friends on fire
      KickOutTheJamsX
      Surprisingly decent amount of good bands this year.. anti-flag, big d, bouncing souls, bad religion.. some of my favorite bands and real warped tour music. not to mention some good ska acts as well.
      ZakkRox90
      no protest the hero this year =/ good thing i saw and met them last year. lol line up looks amazing cant wait
      MAXPAYNE4664
      Bad Religion The Devil Wears Prada Senses Fail Silverstein Thrice Underoath Hopefully Rise Against and Sum 41 are in 09's lineup too.
      radioplay
      good to see NoFX back on the bill. I heard this list the other day. Overall,its crap. But its far better than the past two years, those were awful. NoFX,Bad Religion,Flogging Molly,Streetlight Manifesto,Big D& the Kids Table are 5 of my favorite bands. And, more bands will probably be added later.Hopefully good ones,some old punk bands (i personally would highly enjoy the Adicts).
      QuantumMechanix
      I'd go just for Alexisonfire. Throw in Silverstein, Senses Fail, Saosin, ISMFOF, Bayside, Chiodos, Escape the Fate and The Devil Wears Prada and its not too bad of a show
      Colgate Total
      Brokencyde, Jefferee Star, and 3OH!3? I hear these guys enough at home, now they're gonna be at Warped Tour?
      chewychuckels
      yeah! there's less emo bands than last year! i want to see all the bands the guy above me wants too!

      I agree. The year I went was decent. KSE and AILD were there and A7X suprised everyone with a secret show. Bad Religion and Social D were great too. This year is a bunch of weiner bands for teenage girls and depressed children.
      Captain Insano
      Anti-Flag Bad Religion Big D and the Kids Table Less Than Jake NOFX Flogging Molly I'd see them...
      chipmunksurfer
      this has got to be the worst warped tour lineup ever. truly terrible. I advise all to stay away from this crap.
      tdrules
      lol its "Architects" not "The Architects", unless this isnt the Brighton band
      EclipseNine
      hmmmm, black tide. thats the only one i would want to see, definitely not worth wasting money on a whole festival.
      RequiemofDemons
      sick nasty, I hope Bad Religion hits Calgary again, that will sell the warped tour for me. Pretty stoked if i get to see less than jake again as well, they were pretty awesome. This line-up isnt the most remarkable thing in the world but it's not the worst..I'v been to waay worse. Oh well maybe some more like big name headliners will show up, not sure how many flamers are going to pop out at this statement but if KSE decides to show up again I would be in heaven >

      I actually like the lineup... Chiodos Silverstein Escape the Fate 3OH!3 A Day to Remember A Skylit Drive Alexisonfire Breathe Carolina Senses Fail Underoath The Devil Wears Prada... Love all of 'em

      Epic fail.
      Jersey_Zombie
      Streetlight Manifesto, Thrice, TAT, Saosin, NOFX, Less Than Jake, Flogging Molly, Bad Religion and A Day to Remember. I'll definately be there.
