My musical tastes were forged in the late 90s and early 2000s - I distinctly remember my dear mother getting fussed when the colossal line, "my friend's got a girlfriend, man he hates that bitch," flew forth from the television. From that point on, the Offspring and I were buds.
Glad to have you back :). Its always hectic here too, never enough time lol.
I'm a fan of all of the above. I own Americana, my guitar teacher taught me songs off Suffer, and The Vandals were among the many concert DVDs my friends and I would watch (because we lived in a tiny town with no live music). Those bands were huge parts of my life in late elementary/early highschool.
How was it? It seems like it would be an awesome lineup.
