    they may not fall in with the manes above, but we've had iggy pop and the stooges, and we've had flogging molly

    edit:
    and I am hoping and praying that we'll get bad religion this year.

    I think you should go to the Warped Tour... and Rancid is not old school.

    they're an incredibly good live act, and they just keep getting better. I've seen them five times, and each time was better than the last. them having a nighttime outdoor theater slot (presumably against a substantial conflict, akin to flogging molly) would be fucking fantastic. I promise you.

    Have you looked at Warped Tour line ups in the last 5 or so years? Basically no one goes to Warped Tour to see the bands listen in this thread anymore. The Vandals and GBH both had pittifully small attendance this year. But everyone there was shitting their pants waiting in anticipation for Motion City Soundtrack.
    With that being said, The Vandals should be a at Coachella. They are a blast live. Rancid would also be awesome at Coachella.

    I lost interest in the Warped Tour a long time ago. The Vandals are fun live and yes, Rancid is awesome live as well. I was just getting back to my roots as an elitest punk by saying Rancid wasn't old school. Gang of Four is post-punk. Ok, I'm done.

    I bet. They look like it. There were also tons of other douchebag bands at Warped Tour... but lets not get into that.

    We had Tony James and Mick Jones this year. Doesn't get any more old school punk than that.

    (Too bad it was so meh.)

    EDIT And Paul Simenon the year before.

    Angry Samoans would also be nice.

    dk with biafra or misfits with danzig would be insane but it will never happen. sex pistols would be cool i guess. bad religion or rancid would just seem out of place, i wouldnt consider them oldschool anyway

    We could have Bad Religion always a class act. Generation X, Something truly Coachella would be to get Poly Styrene to do X Ray Spex. the Adolescents are on tour but i doubt they would go over big at Coachella but maybe in California who knows. Bad Brains would be awesome and maybe some Fugazi or something Sex Pistols blew when i saw them in 96 so nix that Rotten could barely keep up.

    Bad Religion not old school? They are in their 28th year they started roughly in 1980 approximately 3years after the 77 explosion. So they are second wave or new school?

    I was just about to say... bad religion is one of the last true veteran punk bands. as in real veterans, and real punk rock. how are they not old school?! because they didn't run out of material after four albums?

    I don't think that they have had any.

    Operation Ivy would be great.

    Always thought of them as more pure old fashioned rock n roll more than punk.

    Yes, it was a sentence, you illiterate shitbag. Interjection, dash, noun, verb, noun.
