Today we welcome Gavin Lloyd back for his column on pop-punk, nu-metal, metalcore, and anything other microgenre you were into as a teenager that you’re secretly not nearly as embarrassed about as you like to make out you are on social media.

Blink 182 on Thrash Hits
August 10th, 2014
Bloody hell, there’s an awful lot of nonsense on the Reading and Leeds 2014 festival line-up, isn’t there? I mean, we know this isn’t a bona fide heavy music festival like Download and Sonisphere, but sweet flippin’ Jesus is there some pony stinking up the bill this year. That’s because it’s enormous – literally 100s of bands – but, as such, there are also a whole load of bloody excellent bands and this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist cuts through all that and brings you the very best of the heavy stuff that you can find if you sniff around the schedule a little bit.

By pretty much any metric we care to think about, 2013 was a great year for Thrash Hits. If we look over the raw numbers, it was our most successful year ever, with more people reading the site, more people coming back to the site, and more people sticking around and actually reading our stuff than ever before. Seeing how every other website these days seems to be degenerating to nothing more than clickbait listicles with “You won’t believe…”-style headlines, we think that last point is of particular importance.
Before we really get our teeth into 2014, we thought we’d make our holiday slacking last another couple of days by looking back at the content from the last twelve months that helped make it our best ever year. First up: our top 6 opinion pieces.

When the Reading & Leeds Festival line-up was announced and Blink 182 were the first headliners to be unveiled, a lot of people were grateful that it was a rock-oriented band even if they are a reformed dinosaur rather than anything fresh. Tomas Doyle, however, didn’t take any positives from it at all and so he mounted his soapbox once again…
I fucking hate Blink 182. “Oh how can you hate Blink 182, Tom? They’re a really big and important band and that.” First things first, loads of stuff is big, that doesn’t make it important. Michael McIntyre is big but at an artistic level he is colossally unimportant and colossally unfunny – just like Blink 182.

Believe it or not, Reading & Leeds Festival 2010 have already announced a more controversial line-up than Download and Sonisphere put together. Hugh Platt explains why.
Holy fuck! We guess you’ve seen the initial Reading and Leeds Festival line-up announcements by now, and we’ll admit that we are surprised. We normally like to smugly stroke our beards at impending festival announcements, safe in the knowledge of what’s about to be revealed is either a) underwhelming, b) already pre-leaked to near-pointlessness, or c) of absolutely no interest whatsoever.
But Reading and Leeds Festivals this year have already gone beyond expectations.

The Learjet was travelling from Columbia, South Carolina when it crashed in the same state, killing four people and injuring two.
Also travelling in the private jet was Adam ‘DJ AM‘ Goldstein – a current collaborator with Barker. Both have been taken to a burns centre in Augustus, Georgia.
