5. Three Doors Down on the RNC Main Stage

At the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, the MC5 kicked out the jams while hippies, radicals, and student activists -- revved up by their passion for Civil Rights and ending the Vietnam War -- brawled in the streets with riot cops. At the 2012 Republican National Convention, a sausage-faced opponent of gay marriage will purchase an extra large order of nacho freedom fries, and spill Cheez Whiz all over his foam "Paul Ryan #1" hand, while Three Doors Down plays "Kryptonite." Compare, contrast, and draw your own conclusions.





4. Lynyrd Skynyrd Serenades Ann the Mormon Honky

Although the Southern rock legends had an RNC appearance canceled yesterday due to Tropical Storm Isaac, Lynyrd Skynyrd are still scheduled to pay tribute to Mitt the Mormon Honky's beloved wife, Ann Romney, with the title track from their latest album, "Last of a Dyin' Breed." The band will also be performing the Republican National Convention's theme song: "Sweet Home Alabama."
