As shameful as it is some of you readers don’t actually check Dying Scene every hour of every day.  For you slackers we’ve put together a list of last week’s biggest stories to help you stay in the loop and maintain your punk cred.  You’re welcome.

1. Here’s a list of ten punks who are way richer than you think. How’s that minimum wage job treating you?

3. Itching to know more about dearly departed Sublime frontman Brad Nowell? Here you go!

4. Cozy up to this interview with Boston badass Lenny Lashley.

5. We reviewed this year’s Warped Tour compilation. Spoiler alert: It’s terrible.

6. A Wilhelm Scream is pumping out some new music. “Number One,” a single off of their upcoming album,  Partycrasher, dropped this week.

7. Triana Figueroa (previously credited as “some chick”) put out some top notch ukulele covers of some classic Lagwagon songs. A+!
