Mayhem Festival Promoter Has Approached Pantera for a Reunion

Here's a bad idea:

The producer behind the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival has approached the surviving members of Pantera about reuniting, to 'get them out there'. He thinks it would be totally 'bad ass'...and people would have a chance to see Pantera, and of course he would make a s***-ton of money selling tickets.

I know, a lot of people never got to see Pantera during their heyday, and would really like a chance to see them. I totally get it.

But guess what? It's NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN!

Gathering of the Juggalos 2015 Books In This Moment, Mushroomhead, Puddle of Mudd, and More! [Video]

I have never been to the Gathering of the Juggalos, and frankly I don't plan on going anytime soon. I have been to a couple of like festivals, and unless I have a camper with some sort of shower, I'm good!

The Gathering is a huge music festival that goes on for 3 days and it ran by one of the most hated groups ever, Insane Clown Posse.

Besides all the rap and horror-core groups, a few different rock and metal acts will be on the bill too!
