Yeah, I like all of them, except for Simple Plan, haha. But even then I have to give them props for contributing. Pretty sure Reset played shows with NUFAN way back in the day, but I could be wrong because I wasn't old enough to be there.

This is going to be awesome and a great way to celebrate Tony.

Love that Karina is on there... Shame there's no NFG that would have been fun. That being said, there are more than enough amazing bands I didn't expect to see there!

I don't think they've ever officially confirmed because it's not really any of our business, but I did one of the last interviews with Tony and he admitted he was mixing alcohol and painkillers to help ease his back pain.

I can't believe today marks the one year anniversary of Tony's passing. I miss his voice more and more. I love how www.fatwreck.com brings you right to the tribute page.

Lots of great artists. Yellowcard, The Gaslight Anthem and Rise Against should be particularly great.

They also mention bonus tracks will be included with every purchase as I know some bands recorded more than one song. Such a great tribute!

Man, that looks fucking great. I can't wait for this, so many great artists on this record. Also, I can't believe that it's been one year since Tony Sly passed away.

what a great bunch of bands to honour an amazing dude. surprised to see no swellers though, that video nick put out of himself covering 'international you day' on the day tony died still makes me tear up a bit.
