Since launching in 1994, much has changed about the Warped Tour. For everything that's different about the annual traveling punk-rock caravan now, some things such as the hairdos have, for the most part, stayed refreshingly the same -- surprising, considering that the majority of attendees this year were babies when this thing was birthed. To wit, there were a number of dudes sporting liberty spikes. (Granted, most of them were older -- the younger fellas seem to prefer the swoop -- but still.) Have a look.
