Rancid's entire history has been based on the "Corporate Rock Still Sucks" premise. The group landed on MTV and made gold records without having to suck on the corporate pole. It jump-started the careers of the now-legendary Distillers and the Dropkick Murphys. But times have changed: Rancid signed with Warner Bros. With a single ink stain, more than a decade of shit-talking became irrelevant. But there's no glamour in stalled careers, and divorce lawyers are expensive. It's best to look upon this episode as a lesson for the mall-punk throng that'll melt their Mohawks in the heat this weekend as the Warped Tour visits the Pompano Beach Amphitheatre, 1801 NE Sixth St., Pompano Beach, on Saturday, July 26. Gates open at 11 a.m. Call 954-946-2402.
