I don't know how you are mentally preparing for the Loudwire Music Festival, but I've been rolling with a playlist that includes some mainline stuff everyone knows. Then, there are a few choices that many may find...odd. Too bad, it's my playlist. Rob Zombie and Halestorm are a couple of my favorites so they're very well represented here. The fact that I have "Dear Daughter" in a playlist of predominantly heavy stuff even scares my wife.

You will also find cuts from Hinder, who I think are very underrated. Although, I will admit it's hard to listen to "American Nightmare" and feel like a bad ass when you look like the guy on the cover of Mad Magazine.

Here it is in all it's confusing glory...my pre-Loudwire playlist:
