Stone Temple Pilots Added To Welcome To Rockville Lineup

The folks responsible for throwing the biggest hard rock show in the state “Welcome To Rockville” raised some eyebrows last week when they revealed their full lineup, with one glaring omission to the Saturday bands listed...

We now know who the mysterious question-marked band is, and why they couldn’t be announced last week. 

Joining the over 30 bands that will be playing Jacksonville on April 27th, 28th, and 29th will be Stone Temple Pilots with their new lead singer Jeff Gutt. 

STP announced they had hired Gutt on Wednesday making the timing of the Rockville lineup announce a near-miss for their inclusion. 

The band introduced their front man by releasing a new track titled Meadow for fans to sample:

Welcome To Rockville has also announced that for the first time in the festival’s history, they’ll be opening up a camp grounds for attendees to stay overnight and enjoy the festival atmosphere all night long. For more info on camping and vehicle passes, click here.

Tickets are available right now, but prices will be going up as we get closer to the festival.

Warped Tour, No More?

The music industry's last major touring festival is calling it quits.

Organizers behind the Vans Warped Tour have announced that next year's summer festival will be the last one.

The Warped Tour was founded in 1995, and featured a lineup that included Sublime, No Doubt, and the Deftones. 

This year will mark the 24th year of the largest traveling music festival in the United States. No bands have been announced yet, but there will be some sort of 25th anniversary celebration in 2019. The festival promoters say it won't be a traditional traveling Warped Tour.

On a related note, "Rolling Stone" has a new list of the '50 Greatest Pop-Punk Albums.'

Here is their Top 5:

"Dookie", Green Day, 1994 

"Enema of the State", Blink-182, 1999 

"Rocket to Russia", The Ramones, 1977 

"Milo Goes to College", The Descendents, 1982 

"Take This to Your Grave", Fall Out Boy, 2003

Stone Temple Pilots Might Have a New Lead Singer

Stone Temple Pilots are apparently moving forward despite losing two lead singers in the past two years, to death.

Their original singer Scott Weiland died of an overdose in 2015, and his replacement Chester Bennington killed himself earlier this year. 

STP has a gig lined up for November 14th in West Hollywood. It's their first time hitting the stage since Chester's death. According to reports, they WILL have a new lead singer, but no one has any idea who it is. 

Last month, bassist Robert DeLeo said, "We've been working with someone, I don't want to name names yet. We're making music. I don't know if he's well-known or unknown...I don't look at him as 'well-known.'" 

One rumored name is former "X Factor" contestant Jeff Gutt. Watch some of his work below: 

There's also been talk that they could go the "Journey" route, because there's a Filipino guy they've supposedly been looking at named John Borja. Here's John doing his thing on YouTube: 

The last time the band was in town for Big Ticket, Tank sat down with band member Erik Kretz to talk about the latest on STP:

Are These The 10 Greatest Jock Jams of All Time?

Everyone who has ever been to Everbank Field knows there is a tight playlist of “go-to” songs to get the crowd amped up as the Jags attempt to do anything besides go three-and-out.

Chances are if you grew up in the 90’s you owned some of these songs on one of the “Jock Jams” CDs that were so popular during that decade.

There’s always been heavy debate on these tracks though: Do they do the trick of making tens of thousands of fans rise to their feet, or are they too corny to accomplish anything outside of a embarrassing memory or two?

Billboard.com has decided to add fuel to the fire by ranking what they think are the "The 100 Greatest Jock Jams of All Time."

There were five official volumes of the "Jock Jams" series with a total of 107 songs, but this list isn't limited to those. There are even some recent 'jock jams' on the list. 

Here's the Top 10: 

1. "We Will Rock You", Queen, 1977 

2. "Welcome to the Jungle", Guns N' Roses, 1987 

3. "Hip Hop Hooray", Naughty By Nature, 1993 

 

4. "Kernkraft 400", Zombie Nation, 1999 

 

5. "Seven Nation Army", The White Stripes, 2003 

 

6. "Eye of the Tiger", Survivor, 1982 

 

7. "Rock and Roll Part 2", Gary Glitter, 1972 

 

8. "Jump Around", House of Pain, 1992 

 

9. "Crazy Train", Ozzy Osbourne, 1981 

 

10. "Get Ready for This", 2 Unlimited, 1991 

Other songs on the list that feel slightly dated at this point: "Whoomp! (There It Is)", "The Final Countdown", and the 90’s techno mega-hit "Sandstorm"

Since you're probably wondering, C&C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)" is at #25. 

You can check out the full list over at Billboard.com.

Linkin Park Is Performing a Chester Bennington Tribute Concert

The future of Linkin Park is still in doubt, but they've announced their first show since Chester Bennington's death.

It'll be a "celebration" of Chester on October 27th at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

They're planning on having an all-star roster of guests join them, and Linkin Park says they will donate all their fees to Music for Relief's 'One More Light Fund.'

It's possible that this could be the FINAL Linkin Park show. They haven't said anything official about that, but after Chester's death, the band hinted that they may split. LP implied that they'd never replace Bennington, so it's unclear how they'll continue.

The band also just released a video for "One More Light" that honors Chester. Watch it below:

A Day To Remember

Modest Mouse At The St. Augustine Amphitheatre

X102.9 is very proud to present Modest Mouse LIVE at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, September 7th at 7pm!

Listen every day beginning September 4th at 5pm for your chance to win your way in to the show! You can also win you way in by entering on the X1029 app, available at the iTunes app store, and the Google Play store:

Modest Mouse is an American rock band formed in 1992 in Issaquah, Washington (a suburb of Seattle), and currently based in Portland, Oregon. Strongly influenced by groups Pavement, the Pixies, XTC, and Talking Heads, the band rehearsed, rearranged, and recorded demos for almost two years before finally signing with small-town indie label, K Records, and releasing numerous singles.

The band's name is derived from a passage from the Virginia Woolf story "The Mark on the Wall," which reads, "I wish I could hit upon a pleasant track of thought, a track indirectly reflecting credit upon myself, for those are the pleasantest thoughts, and very frequent even in the minds of modest mouse-coloured people, who believe genuinely that they dislike to hear their own praises."
