The Wrecking Yard Salutes “Woodstock 99″ [VIDEO]

I have had this conversation many times with curious people on why the U.S. does not host weekend long Rock Festivals. My greatest example is Woodstock ’99. The final day of celebrating came to a shameful close on this day in rock history.

It was an over priced event that went for $150 per ticket, along with $12 slices of pizza and $4 20 oz. bottles of water with over 200,000 people showing up to throw down at Woodstock ’99 you think that there would be enough bathroom’s to accommodate this many people but sadly there wasn’t.

Woodstock ’99 should be remembered for all the sick bands that preformed that weekend including: Metallica, Limp Bizkit, Buckcherry, Lit, Korn, DMX, Bush, The Offspring, The Chemical Brothers, Kid Rock, Rage Against The Machine, Godsmack, Megadeth, Red Hot Chili Peppers and many more.

But when you take the heat and OVER PRICED EVERYTHING people will take their aggression out on whatever they can. When Limp Bizkit took the stage on the second day, you could see the crowd getting restless when they preformed their hit “Break Stuff.” It wasn’t until the final night of the festival when the Red Hot Chili Peppers took the stage and fires started breaking out everywhere including an audio tower catching fire.

Woodstock ’99 is a dark mark in rock and roll history. As long as there is OVERPRICED EVERYTHING, including the ticket price, I don’t see a weekend long festival happening anytime soon.
