Marsala did introduce Bad Religion as "the best punk rock band ever," and Bad Religion owned up to at least being the best punk rock band on this year's Warped Tour. "21st Century (Digital Boy)" lacked the boost that punk needs to take off. Just as singer Greg Graffin can explode with confidence and proper delivery, he also sometimes can fizzle into the expected.
He ditched the funk with the poetic "Epiphany" and the rousing, old-school "Recipe for Hate." The band's 2002 hit "Sorrow" closed the 30-minute set with the sing-along moment of the entire day, and it set the stage for New Found Glory, the evening's much-adored headliner.
And suddenly there was a crude sense of d?j vu.
Back in June of 2002, Bad Religion put forth a steady set at Warped Tour, then held at Adams County Fairgrounds, and led the crowd to a climax before handing the stage over to a few acts, one of whom was New Found Glory.
