    We are picking back up where we left off before the early 90’s neutralization. It’s ON. I knew when they closed the Grammys with Welcome to the Terrordome this was going to be a huge year for social change/revolution.


  • No Philly stops so disappointed

  • grownup

    I saw PE in September. I still talk about it every chance I get. It was my first time seeing them live, even though I’ve been a fan since I was 12 (and I’m 34 now). It was the best show I’ve ever seen.

    Ll performing “Headsprung” n “Accidental Racist” is worth the price tag alone. LOL
