#186 – March 2010

The Most Anticipated Releases of 2004

Before we get too obsessed with blowing through boxes of legal pads to compile our end-of-year Best Of 2003 lists, we set our sights ahead to what kinda rock is in store for 2004. We catch up with GOOD CHARLOTTE, THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS, NINE INCH NAILS, WEEZER, JIMMY EAT WORLD, THE STARTING LINE, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, FLOGGING MOLLY, THE CASUALTIES, GLASSJAW, HOT HOT HEAT and GREEN DAY, among many others, so we may help you plan the soundtrack of your lives.



We preview the latest from Phantom Planet, Firewater, Air, Starsailor, Horrorpops and Challenger; go In The Studio with Cave In, onelinedrawing and Clinic; and list over 100 discs to be thankful for this holiday season. 


The AP Poll reveals the truth behind your CD collection; Low Profile checks out Bleeding Through, Maxeen and Pelican; Kelly Osbourne dishes on working with Tim Armstrong; Thrice’s Riley Breckenridge gives us a drum lesson; Senses Fail take us to Mom’s house; and we scope the latest in all-star side projects. All that plus gossip, rock-star jewelry you’ve gotta have, and part three in the year-long AP History. 


Elijah Wood grows up; Estella Warren exhibits model behavior; meanwhile, Now Showing excavates the latest movies raiding theaters and DVD players. 


The AP Record Store is the only place you can get the real deal on new releases from the Offspring, Hatebreed, the Living End, KMFDM, U.S. Maple, Against Me! and more; In-Store Sessions with Snapcase and Ryan Adams; the lowdown on reissues, box sets and best-ofs in Collector’s Corner; and find out which 10 CDs our editors wouldn’t mind finding under their Christmas tree (or Chanukah bush) in Listening Station. 


The last-ever 10 Essential finds your AP editors revealing all the good, bad, dumb and dumber music that kept them sane enough to bring you this magazine all year.
