Review: Warped Tour 2002 Compilation

Various Artists
“Warped Tour 2002 Compilation”
(Side One Dummy Records)

Fifty bands on two CD’s. Fun! What’s it for? Bands that are appearing on this years Warped Tour, I guess. This would be cool for someone who is going to the tour but only knows like four bands, and wants to plan the whole day. See, the Warped Tour has a shitload of bands over 4-5 stages, so you really can’t see all of them unless you just keep walking in a big circle for eight hours. It’s kind of handy to at least know the bands so when you get there and see the scedule, you can adjust according to who is playing where and at what time. And who exactly is on this double album? NOFX, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, SUM 41, Midtown, Good Charlotte, Swingin’ Utters, The Casualties, Lawrence Arms, Manic Hispanic, Finch, Avoid One Thing, Antifreeze, Glassjaw, Tsunami Bomb, Reach The Sky, No Use For A Name, Sloppy Meat Eaters, Slick Shoes, Taking Back Sunday, From Autumn To Ashes, Unsung Zeros, Divit,  Throw Rag, Too Rude, Ozma, Alkaline Trio, Madcap, Flogging Molly, The Briggs, One Man Army, Auto Pilot, Thursday, Kill Your Idols, Breathe In, The Movielife, The Damned, The Eyeliners, Lagwagon,  Murphy’s Law, Mi6, Throwdown, Against All Authority, The Used, Dag Nasty, Avenged Sevenfold, Name Taken, Death On Wednesday, Vendetta Red, Destruction Made Simple, and The Ataris. Thankfully, the website ( had someone type all that up so I could just cut and paste it. This compilation’s five bucks, which is pretty cheap, especially for two CD’s. Then again, that’s an order of rolled taco’s with beans and rice. Hmm.
