People are entitled to their own opinions on what year they believe was the best of Vans Warped Tour. There are only two years I consider my absolute favorite of all Vans Warped Tours I've attended. Now you may or may not agree with the years I personally loved.

There were only two years I absolutely loved attending the Vans Warped Tour in Las Cruces. Everyone always remembers their first Vans Warped Tour as do I. The first Vans Warped Tour I ever attended was in 2005.

In 2005 was when Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Dropkick Murphys, Transplants, Underoath, and The Offspring performed. It happened to be the same year Fall Out Boy released "Sugar, We're Goin Down" which is a favorite of mine. Another favorite was when Vans Warped Tour came to Las Cruces in 2011.

That year I got to see a lot of action go down with the bands and co-workers. Many years ago we filmed a video to show you exactly what it takes to set up a live broadcast. Funny story, if you attended Vans Warped Tour in 2011 then you may have seen Dubba G getting busted by the law.

But if you didn't, then you can see what I am talking about by watching above. Plus, 2011 was the year A Day to Remember was set to perform which went amazingly well. You can see the proof from the Las Cruces show from AntonioSosa211's YouTube video (below).

My favorite performance to see A Day to Remember perform was "All I Want" which is below. I remember cranking up the music when their song "Better Off This Way" came on in the studio. It's a bummer we won't be seeing any in Las Cruces but thankful we have past memories from some.
