Riding back to the Danger zone Six years ago, Harvey Danger was playing the KROQ Weenie Roast, with the Seattle foursome's bouncy "Flagpole Sitta" reaching No. 1 that summer on the modern rock giant. This week, frontman Sean Nelson is fretting that nobody will show up Saturday night when the group plays the Troubadour. "The moment we were newsworthy seems like a long time ago," he concedes.

A summer rock festival seems like a good place to forget about the world's troubles. But for punk rock guru Louis Posen, it's another chance to make the world a little better. As guitars wailed at the Warped Tour's stop in Ventura on Wednesday, Posen talked about how the annual rock festival is a good forum to educate young people about social responsibility. He said everyone should give back to the community, and his way of doing that is through music.

Is mindless metal being replaced by a more profound kind of moshin' music? Geoff Rickly of the melodic hard-core band Thursday isn't so sure. "I thought it was just a general trend that music was getting smarter and that it seemed to be going to a more compassionate place," reflects the singer-lyricist. "Like it wasn't just our little movement, but rock in general. Then the new Limp Bizkit song came out, and I was like, well, maybe not."

But John Lydon, who has been unsatisfied with portrayals of him in such films as "Sid and Nancy," is giving the matter serious thought these days.
