I was REALLY into them. Even saw them in concert once.

But after they broke up the first time, I moved on. But I'm glad they've patched up their differences. Hope the reunion shows go well.

They had a good run but they were also very much of their time - liked them then, still like them now, but not going to pretend that they're doing a few shows to play old songs is going to change the world.

If they dropped a (good) new album then hit the road -- I might be more interested.

I think this may lack the impact you're talking about because they have already reunited before.

For me personally, I've always loved the concept of RATM more than the actual music itself. I dig what they did/represented, and I certainly recognize the impact they had and the influence and the live show is pretty fucking out of control, but I'd be lying if I said I was ever able to listen to a full LP from front-to-back.

If they had put out one EP of the best songs from their first two albums and then never done anything else, I'd probably think they were legends lol.

If they had done a shadow drop on a song and announced tourdates at the same time the hype overall would be way bigger IMO.

...and it was like a 17K sized mosh pit.

I sat in the stands, right where the floor met the side of the stands. The crowd on the floor got so intense that folks were climbing the walls and then fans to get in the stands to escape the intensity of the moshing.

Not that I expected a Rage concert to be a quiet, intimate experience but the anarchy was noticeable and a bit frightening.

Hope it's a great time tho! Ha!

In response to Reply # 14


          

I was like 5 "rows" back (in quotes because there were no seats, it was Rock the Bells so any organization was crowd-made) for Wu-Tang at Rock the Bells on Randall's Island in ... 2007 or 2008 when RATM was headlining. So Wu finished and Rage was next. I *thought* I wanted to remain where I was for Rage, so I stayed put while a good majority of the crowd went and apparently drank all the water while they flipped the stage for RATM.

Big mistake. As it got closer to showtime the savages came and staked their position. I was still cool at first cuz I was high as fuck and was really psyched to be so close for that RATM reunion. But then after the excitement of the first like 5 songs had run its course, and we'd run out of weed, I had a fucking fierce case of dry mouth and needed liquids stat.

Tried to make my way through the crowd and found myself on the outer circle of a psychotic mob/mosh pit beating the fuck out of eachother. Unless I wanted to walk like 100 yards to my left or right to avoid it I had no choice but to fight my way thru.

So I threw up my hands on some white flag shit trying to find whatever space I could. Couple kids almost came to destroy me but once they saw that I was not one of them they played nice and let me thru.

Dodged that bullet basically unscatched; I only caught a couple shoves and low elbows to the midsection as I rushed thru.

...... only to find that there was no water left anywhere. Fuck.

Watched the rest of the show from the back of that first huge sea of humans, which was fine. At least I caught Wu up close and the first few Rage songs too.

That was fun as hell but I doubt I'd do it again unless I had some kind of water apparatus attached to me lol.

Yeah, outdoor festivals are not made for people over 35 unless there are either seats, benches, or allow for picnic baskets.

24 actually, lol. But to be fair my situation then was mostly due to the weed.

So to your point, at my current age you're right - weed or no weed, I'm good with the festival scene now haha.

lol @ picnic baskets. That's a mental picture.

You know those drunk friends who would grab you, put their arm around your shoulder all rough and shit as a greeting? Nah. I never went for that. Don’t grab me. And that was the case in my early 20s even.

Walking through a mosh pit as a grown ass man? Lol. I would’ve walked that extra 100 yards ALL the way around that. These dumb asses punch each other and it’s all good? SMH. Fuck all that.

There's the bullshit you describe above for sure, then there's just the abject nightmare of going to the bar for the next round at a crowded bar. Not only am I just generally uncomfortable with folks in my personal space, but a huge part of that is cuz I naturally run hot, I'm always fucking hot, so it doesn't take much for me to sweat under those conditions.

Fuuuuck all that is right. Was never my scene, I've never understood it.

Steroid prices will spike a few days before the concert.

RATM and Fishbone are excuses for people to hit each other.
