I'd agree with you Wholeheartedly!!!!
Again, those bands have "the look" I think that fits the HR image. Tim with his 5 pointer, Fat Mike from NOFX, and the Cramps! They just keep getting better with age! That was the band I used to tick-off my mom back in High School! I would play Bad Music fo Bad People as loud as my Audiovox 1 piece "Stereophonic" system would go. Around "Goo Goo Muck" time, my mom would beg me to turn it off. Mission accomplished :-)
I saw them in the early 90's, maybe 91 or 92. It was a very disturbing show. While I loved the music, even I was a little uneasy with the crowd. I wasn't sure of gender in most of the people, and when Lux cam out in 5 inch heels and a rubber jumpsuit, I knew it was going to get rough. He only wore the suit for about 15 minutes and then he stripped down to his thong underwear and a t-shirt, which he later took off and wrung out the sweat into his own mouth. Hmmmmmm. I loved the show and I'm glad I went, but will take a good old Punk Rock show anyday.
You can keep your Moby & Kid Rock, I'd take Lux & Poision Ivy any day of the year.
Do you live in Las Vegas? My wife and I wanted to go see NOFX at Mandalay Bay this summer, but we couldn't get time off. And I couldn't tell if it was the Warped Tour or if they were on their own.
Oh well, I could go on and on, but I think I already have!
