Ever since Blink-182 sang, "Couldnt wait for the summer and the Warped Tour, I remember it's the first time that I saw her there," the two-month-long pop-punk extravaganza known as the Warped Tour was immortalized as the ultimate teenage summer tradition. The music festival has been the event of the summer for high school students and punk rock enthusiasts around the country. It's a place to see your favorite bands, hang out with your friends, bake in the sun, and, of course, find your summer fling.
The tour started last Saturday and will make its way around the country until early August. Of the over 90 acts performing at the tour this summer -- from veterans like The Used and New Found Glory to newer acts like Breathe Carolina and Tonight Alive -- we've picked the eight bands we're most excited to see when the tour hits NYC in late July.
Check out the videos in the slideshow below to get pumped up for the shows!

We Are The In Crowd
The Paramore-esque radio-friendly fare of We Are The In Crowd smacks of summer. It's the perfect show for jumping up and down with your friends and celebrating three months of freedom.
So these guys may not have come out with anything new, but still, "Ocean Avenue" is still one of the best summer anthems out there, so it's a performance we won't want to miss.
These high-energy electro-pop rockers know how to get the crowd on their feet -- and their performance is sure to be one of the most dance-worthy shows of the tour.
A Day To Remember
Florida pop-rockers A Day To Remember know how to get the audience going, and they can be counted on for a solid set.
