ozzfest20071@ZackTeibloom I don’t think Andy or I ever considered entertaining the idea of going to Ozzfest, but it’s now officially canceled. I do respect that they made the festival free in 2007 b/c of heavy sponsors. We haven’t paid for a festival in years, but I think it would be nice if more festivals could pull that off. Would you believe that I was at Ozzfest 2002? It’s true.I mostly came to Ozzfest ’02 because I was really into System of a Down at the time. I’ll remember that festival as one of the least friendly crowds I’ve ever been apart of.

They especially took their anger out on P.O.D. a “hard rocking” Christian band that was just not hard enough for them. The image that sticks in my head is everytime P.O.D. would sing/yell their chorus of “Boom! Here comes the Boom!” the crowd would give them the finger right on the boom. Classy.

They really loved Rob Zombie and showed their appreciation by having a massive mud/sod fight, tearing up most of the grass from the lawn seating and heaving it into the pavillion. I recall getting smacked in the face by a breadbox sized lump of sod. Good times. Good times. Give me hippies over metal heads anytime.

I still think System of a Down was a hell of a show in 2002. Oh well. Sorry Ozzfest.
