Oh, I saw Boxcar Racer last week at BuzzFest here in Houston, and boy were they awful. They played everything WAY too fast compared to the CD, Tom Delonge can't sing outside of a studio to save his life, and the other musicians are just poor punk fellas who happened into a big gig because they are friends with Tom. Travis Barker is a heckava drummer, but that band is awful. Everyone started leaving after they began playing because it was such an assault on the ears.
I'll tell you who was awesome though, that was Saliva. They were the best band all day, and that's saying something considering Hoobastanka, Audiovent, The Exies, Hometown Hero, and OK Go played. OK Go was pretty great even on the nasty side stage.
I'd still take ANY song in your Bottom 10 to that shit known as the Vines.
Utilizing the belief system and work ethic (Mattributes) of THE Matt Hardy to create a better life for yourself by fulfilling your goals and dreams. Mattitude is a quality that can help anyone -- regardless of background or past -- to achieve success. You just have to make it a lifestyle, a mindset, a religion. Mattitude, is something that can not be taught or learned. Mattitude is something that burns within. In the ring, Mattitude is the intangible, the x-factor, that gives me an advantage over everyone else.

I never thought I'd say it, but "I Am Mine" is nearing overplayed status here. It's sad, actually. Not bad, but just not THAT good. Maybe they could make some room for some JJG?
But enough of that, what'd they do right?

Oh yes, Loudermilk has earned that slot. 'Specially because they get no play on the radio... had to resort to Music Choice to hear that. Same with the Exies. And the nearby college station (WUNH) gives me my Johnny Cash fix.
And in the category of "Haven't heard them, but I'm sure they're good":

And where the hell is 30 Seconds to Mars? I can't believe Jared Leto's actually IN that band. They can't be THAT good with any celebrity in there in any capacity.
ENOUGH WITH THE PEARL JAM. "I Am Mine" has officially reached overkill, and since that's their first song I like in well, forever, be happy they MADE it. Pearl Jam can really annoy the hell out of me. Loudermilk doesn't get any play, but the Exies are actually slowly gaining a lot of national radio play. And 30 Seconds To Mars was on the FTF a lot over the summer, but I've slowly grown sick of the song. And after buying the CD, trust me, they AREN'T that good.
Review Number One-Ninety-Nine was supposed to be Mounties. A Canadian indie-rock supergroup of sorts, Mounties (is? are?) my favourite guy Hawksley Workman, Steve Bays from Hot Hot Heat, and Ryan Dahle from Limblifter and Age of Electric.
