Bands I Want to See at M3 Rock Festival 2012 

According to Facebook, M3 rock festival is definitely happening again. I don't have any more details, but I'm assuming it will once again be in May at Merriweather Post Pavilion, just outside of Baltimore, Maryland.

So who do I want to see? Here's my dream list:

Europe (headliner)
Poison (headliner)
Bang Tango
Night Ranger
Saigon Kick
Lillian Axe
Dangerous Toys
Danger Danger

So, what do you think of my lineup? Who do you agree with? And who would you add?

Excellent line up. Europe is my top choice as well. But I would also love to see some new blood like Crash Diet, Wig Wam and more

I'd like to see some of the Euro bands like Crash Diet, Wig Wam, and Crazy Lixx as well. Would really love to see Enuff Z'Nuff this time.

I'd add Junkyard, Rock City Angels and Tora Tora.

Steel Panther would be nice again. Airbourne, Reckless Love, Hammerfall, Wild Street, Keel, Def Lep as Headliner.
Chicken Foot would rock out, too.

I'll actually go with RNR, Brian L and Snoot!

Def and Europe as the two "biggies".

Then Junkyard, Rock City Angels and Tora Tora.

I had the chance to see Rock City Angels in Fort Lauderdale last year. Absolutely love that band. But it turned out to be the same night Shipknot! set sail from there. Believe me when I heard about it, I was tempted to skip Shipsanked! But then I would have missed all the fun I had messin' with Vince Neil.

I was fortunate enuff to see Junkyard twice back in the day at The Cat Club off of the first two albums. Two of the best shows I've ever seen! They ARE Rock'n'Roll!

Nigel has some great suggestions, too, that also make me want to add to the list of bands the promoters will never add -- Reckless Love, Hansel and Danger Avenue.

Also my ex-lead guitarist suggests Saxon but I just don't believe they think of them as fitting and same goes with my earlier pick of Priest.

Why not throw Poison in, too?

I'd love to see Junkyard, they tour quite a lot in Spain, might have to get down there one fine day.

RCA front man Bobby Durango's got a new band called Mondophonics you might wanna check out.

I would be there for that lineup Allyson.

That is, providing I have any money left after the monsters of rock cruise.

Here is a list that I put together:


Lita Ford
Black 'N Blue
Charm City Devils


(Main Stage)

Alice Cooper
Night Ranger
Michael Schenker
L.A. Guns (Phil)
Danger Danger

(Back Stage)

Pretty Boy Floyd
Faster Pussycat
Rhino Bucket
Charm City Devils


I tried to make my list realistic.. I'd love to see bands like Crazy Lixx and Crashdiet but I just don't see it happening.

Scratch Charm City Devils on Friday.. :)
November 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRock-It
Van Halen

Can't wait for M3 2012....curious how they will top previous years. I hope they stick with the Friday night and all day Saturday. BRING BACK STEEL PANTHER (to headline the 2nd stage)!!!!

Sorry, I don't think Europe is headline material but I think it would be cool to see them play (and definatley different)!

I have heard a few ppl mention poison but personally, I don't think the money should be spent on them and a high guarantee just to hear the same set list. they bring nothing new to the table at this point.

Here are some of my predictions and wishes:
Spread Eagle
Dio Disciples
Lynch Mob
Jeff Scott Soto!!!

I do hope KIX AND LA GUNS (PHIL) RETURNS. Give LA GUNS the slot right before KIX. They deserve more than 20 minutes at this point. they are M3 STAPLES!!!

Jetboy-UGH! Please no. new singer is awful!

Please dear Lord, I hope Lita doesn't return. I've seen her WAY too many times in the last few years and she's just not worth it!

I love the idea of CHICKENFOOT headlining!

As for Triumph, I saw them headline the Friday night of Rocklahoma in 2009 and talk about SNOOZEFEST! Great Band, just not festival worthy!

I would much prefer to have UFO on that stage!!!

Billy Idol! :)

Good list Allyson. I sure Hope Kix as the hometown hero's are now a staple in the lineup, but you never know. I really want Damn Yankees, but also realize a reunion probably is not happening. I also would like to see Steelheart, Europe, Alice Cooper, and another local favorite Child's Play! They are awesome and are playing a ruinion show in baltimore with all four members (John and Nicky are taking time away from Charm City Devils to do the show) on December 30 so maybe they can do M3 as well.
November 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKixRules
Airbourne, Reckless Love
Definitely Hardcore Superstar
Rhino Bucket, L.A.Guns (Phil)
Bang Tango(new cd kick azz)
Steel Panther
Dangerous Toys, D'Molls, Keel
The Band- 77 from Spain (Awesome ac/dc sound)
Did I leave one out?
