A Week In Punk: Last Week’s Top Stories Recapped (2/17/13)

A Week In Punk: Last Week’s Top Stories Recapped (2/17/13)

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. We gave you a list of the ten best love songs of 2012. Apparently it was Valentine’s Day or whatever.

2. Blink 182 is set to tour Australia without Travis Barker. They’d hoped he’d overcome his (totally justified) fear of flying, but Barker had to bow out in the end. On a brighter note, Pacific Ridge Records put out A Tribute to Blink 182 this week.

3. Fletcher Dragge of Pennywise talked about the return of original vocalist, Jim Lindberg.

4. Members of Street Dogs and Continental started a new band. They’re called FM359 and are currently working on their debut album.

5. Tim McIlrath of Rise Against covered “For Fiona” by No Use For A Name.

6. Streetlight Manifesto finally quit playing games and gave us a release date for  The Hands That Thieve. Let’s just hope we’re not being Punk’d.

7. Tim Timebomband Friends covered “Summer of ’69” by Bryan Adams. Do you think these guys take requests?

8. Standford’s marching band covered Rancid’s “Ruby Soho.” We did it, you guys! We finally made band geeks cool!

9. Fall Out Boy performed at the NBA Slam Dunk Contest. Tune in next week, where they’ll be touring with the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile.

10. The Vandals are releasing their first album in eight years next month. Rejoice!

This week on Sacred Cow Saturday: Green Day’s Dookie.

Those were just some of the most read stories from last week, but there were plenty more little gems covered.  Let us know what what you loved, what you hated and what your personal favorite story was in the comments.
