^ considering you lock yourself in your room jerking off to women over 40 porn while your mom knocks on your door to let you know your bagel bites are ready, should you really be judging?

Homewrecker, Incendiary, Nails, No zodiac, Exodus, I'd say there are enough great bands on here to offset the shitty ones.


anonymous 12/11/2014 8:15:27 AM

"Homewrecker, Incendiary, Nails, No zodiac, Exodus, I'd say there are enough great bands on here to offset the shitty ones." I hope you mean those are the shitty bands. Because they all have terrible vocals and recycled Hardcore riffs. Music flip.

anonymous 12/18/2014 1:07:26 PM

GROSS!!! All of the bands on Sunday are shitty excuses of music. I guess the NEMF is selling out now. So disappointing.
