Welcome to Renegade Radio

since our inception somewhere around 2002, renegaderadio.net has been about what you don’t hear on the radio. those of us who started this trip and have come and gone over the years were all about music you just can’t hear anywhere else. we’d be out in the scene and hear some incredible stuff and think “any day this will be on FM”.

you see, FM was relevant back then.

but like reel to reel tapes, 8 tracks, am, and the CD, FM really has drifted from relevance. napster in this time has come and gone and song sharing had morphed into the culture overall. we’ve seen a lot of amazing things at renegade and even helped drive a few. but there has always been one constant in that regardless of the medium, the best of the best found it’s way to the top.

it’s defining “best of the best” that gets confusing.

Bad Wolves, Nothing More, Breaking Benjamin and Five Finger Death Punch

Starplex Pavilion, Dallas

I have to think many people are a lot like me. We hear what’s on the radio for the most part and think what we hear represents the bands style and sound. To say that is not always the case is of course an understatement but rarely has it ever been so true than for the band who opened up for The Five Finger Death Punch Tour that also had Breaking Benjamin and Nothing More. I’m referring of course to Bad Wolves. (more)
