The All-American Rejects
Leslie Simon gets on the bus and dodges manly girls, Hatorade drinkers and beer bottles with Oklahoma’s hit sensation to find a whole lotta life outside of the indie scene. And to think it all started with a 17-year-old high-school girl. 

Dropkick Murphys
Journalist fright, transvestites and flaming pubic hair. These are the Dropkick Murphys’ stories, and they’re sticking to ’em. The rock of the Irish starts here. 

America’s finest emo-rock mathematicians have as much in common with Duran Duran as they do with Metallica. Jason Pettigrew sorts through the weirdness (and the time changes).
