I remember hearing one good song from them on an old NHL All-Star game commercial (Meant to Live). I know that's random, but I know it because it's on my MP3 player.

This'll help.

They had a big(ish) hit a while back with Meant to Live, which is just as awful and whiny now as I remembered it. Bleh.

Thats also the only song of theirs I know. Their only shows this year are all at big rock festivals, which again doesnt help me determine if theyre popular or not.

I assume Six Flags booked them because their christian roots mean they wont swear at the kiddies

Are they that band that gets super pissed when you call them a Christian rock band even though they’re totally a Christian rock band?

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

I saw Switchfoot. Of the 2 concerts my friend won tickets to, it was by far the better one, did kind of like them. Odd crowd, they definitely have a fan base that's really enthusiastic even though most of them don't drink or anything (I think; the club did serve drinks to those who wanted them). The guitarist was into a nasty fuzzy sound that seemed unusual for that genre.

Just got back from a great night at the park. Didn't arrive til around 4:30 and was greeted by the lovely sight of the multitude of school and charter buses loading up and shipping out, which set the tone.

Finally got to ride El Toro for the first time this year, and she was running at top form. Anyone who says it's gotten rough is out of their mind.

Also, I was pleasantly surprised that two separate employees went out of their way to be helpful. One of the guards at the front gate opened up another metal detector for us when he saw we were stuck behind multiple families with bags and strollers. Another guard got on his walkie and asked if Kingda Ka was open after he saw me straining my eyes to determine same.

I know I shouldn't be surprised by employees helping guests, but we all know how most Six Flags employees can be.

I used to like 'em, or at least the popular album that featured "Meant to Live"...I just considered them pop rock, though.

How badly will I hate myself if I try Hurricane Harbor this Saturday?

Last time I went the experience was outrageously bad. Felt like sardines in a sewage plant
