Vans Warped Tour

Recently Rolling Stone held a readers' poll to crown history's best punk band. A pointless award to begin with, but the results were even more ridiculous. Included in the top 10 were the Clash, the Ramones, the Sex Pistols, and Dead Kennedys. That's fine. But who was the winner? Black Flag? The Misfits? Wire? No. No, friends, the winner was motherfucking Green Day. And that is exactly why the Warped Tour will never die: Because there are people in this world (the majority of people, even) who think that commercial pop punk written for 15-year-old boys is one of the best things to ever happen in the history of music.
