The discs are obviously long gone, but we crammed the pics into a filing cabinet and forgot about 'em. Until yesterday. We flipped through a few drawers and found a treasure trove of choice stuff, including the one above of Kid Rock in braids, plus a shot of Blink-182 without Travis Barker, a portrait of the late Aaliyah, a shaggy version of Kings of Leon looking like Nazarath or something and tons of other goodness.
