Vans Warped Tour ’11 Compilation CD – The annual compilation CD of Vans Warped Tour was released on June 7th, 2011, on SideOneDummy Records. This 2011 Tour Compilation edition is a double CD Digipak that contains 50 songs from 50 bands! The record label world known for it’s stable of Punk Rock bands along with Vans Warped Tour has released what quite possibly may be the greatest bargain in the Rock Music industry once again. For fans of Alternative Metal, Alternative Rock, Hardcore, Metalcore and Punk Rock, this 2 CD compilation is like a double jolt of Rockin’ lightning, caught in an F’n empty bottle of Guiness.

From PARAMORE  to ELWAY, with A DAY TO REMEMBER in-between, this compilation covers the bands that have recently kept this Vans Warped Tour as a legit leader in the touring Rock festival industry. With the presence of The Devil Wears Prada (Anatomy) and Asking Alexandria (Closure), this compilation is represented fiercely by two young and Extremely Heavy bands that are on the F’n rise.

Rock fans not familiar with the bands affiliated with the ongoing Vans Warped Tour, should benefit immensely from picking up this 2 CD compilation. I picked up my copy new for $5.99 (U.S.) and couldn’t be more satisfied with the overall package of bands and songs. With more Heavy and Extreme bands being added to the bill for Vans Warped Tour in recent years, coupled with the diversity of Alternative, Hardcore and mainstay Punk Rock representation, this is a touring Rock festival that truly knows how to unite Rock genres with one goal in mind: To spread the word of Rock by playing loud, proud and with F’n attitude!
