311, The Offspring hit the road


Considering the recent efforts of 311 and The Offspring happen to be the bands’ worst, it only makes sense that the two would hit the road together this summer and celebrate their respected mediocrity. But wouldn’t you know, that’s what they plan to do with this year’s incarnation of 311’s annual “Unity Tour.”*

Fans should be excited to know that the two will be co-headlining the whole shebang, with Pepper tagging along, meaning it’s going to be one truly rad extravaganza. You might want to let your FB friends know about it. Like now. To play the Devil’s advocate though, you can’t blame folks for being interested; after all, while the bands might give you stomach pains on record these days, they’re sure to play all the hits and favorites. Who doesn’t want to hear “Amber” and “Self-Esteem” again? You know, without turning on modern rock radio, right?
