Yes, folks — it’s that time of year again. It’s time to find out how a bunch of lazy festival organizers have been wasting their time.
The 2012 Rocklahoma lineup has been announced, and let me just say this: It’s awe-inspiringly bad.
Sure, there’s the usual suspects, like Rob Zombie, Queensryche, Slash, and Megadeth. While nothing to write home about, I have no problem with the ‘Ryche or Megadeth or Zombie or Slash.
But then, the three-day camp and rock festival set for May 25 to May 27 at “Catch the Fever” Festival Grounds in Pryor, Oklahoma, boasts Creed and fucking Chevelle.
Do this: In your mind, think of three shitty rock bands. If they are on the following list, you could book Rocklahoma.
Others on the lineup: Chickenfoot, Theory of a Deadman, Jackyl, Puddle of Mudd, HellYeah, P.O.D., Volbeat, 10 Years, Cavo, Adelitas Way, Black Stone Cherry, Pop Evil, Red, The Darkness, Art of Dying, Trivium, James Durbin, Janus, and more.
