    I think I speak for everyone when I say…Design the Skyline, Legeia & Stillwell.

    In no particular order.

    • monkeywithagun

      yeah there will be the usual shitlist of bands on warped this year but, Come on at least lets hope for some good bands are booked as well.

      • D. Ron Hubbard

        Yeah, that’s not gonna happen.

  • TheBDanAbstract

    For some Ungodly reason I went last year. Waste of money. The only bands that I wanted to see were August Burns Red, Relient K, The Acacia Strain, A Day To Remember(yes, I do like them), Set Your Goals, and The Wonder Years, and The Wonder Years, Set Your Goals, and A Day To Remember played at the same damn time, so I only saw A Day To Remember. This festival is planned horribly. 3 bands in relatively the same genre and relatively the same fan base playing at the SAME TIME. Who though that was a good idea? I saw more bands I can’t fucking stand than ones I wanted to see.

      Set Your Goals is fucking terrible. I want to powerbomb that midget lead singer through a table.

      • nickygoods

        but thumbs up for the “a day to remember” comment too they’re fuckin’ tits mcghee!!!

  • nickygoods

    warped tour 2012 will bring about the appocalypse, only thing worse would be a festival thrown by hellyeah (new most hated band, welcome to the big leagues boys)

  • Weird_White_Dude

    Warped Tour has to be the ABSOLUTE worst setting to see a band you like in. Such a shit show.

    • adamonfire

      It used to not be bad at all here in Detroit, but for some reason they made the footprint smaller this past summer and left an entire area empty that they previously had a large stage in before. I’ve seen numerous layouts in the same spot over the years, including having both main stages next to one another, but this year was by far the worst. I don’t mind the 30-minute set times and of course everyone misses a band (or a few) that they want to see due to having to choose, but that’s to be expected for a $35 show. Could they set it up better? I completely agree.

  • Darkdevout

    August Burns Red, As I Lay Dying, The Devil Wears Prada, they need to get trapped under ice to play, haven’t heard hardcore that good since black flag!

  • Surly

    A good read – Dennis’s (Refused, The International Noise Conspiracy) opinion on a lot of bands that will probably be on this tour – HERE

    • adamonfire

      I saw T(I)NC back at Warped Tour 2004, great show. Other bands from that time that I saw at that show included (yes, I keep track of the shows I’ve been to):

      - Anti-Flag
      - A7X (coming off of Waking the Fallen)
      - Bad Religion
      - Billy Talent (awesome live)
      - Coheed & Cambria
      - Rufio
      - Story of the Year (also awesome live)
      - Taking Back Sunday

      It was a lot more favorable to alternative than pop-metal in those days.

  • Surly

    Warped only came to AU in 1998 and 1999. I got to both, for me, most importantly for the Deftones. Yes, times have changed for the most part….

    -Unwritten Law
    -Suicidal Tendencies
    -Less Than Jake
    -The Vandals
    -Living End
    -Blink 182
    -Frenzal Rhomb
    -Toe to Toe
    -Mighty Mighty Bosstones
    -Nancy Vandal
    -22 Jacks

    • adamonfire

      I would most certainly be happy with this line-up in 2012.

      • Surly

        Without a doubt.
