FUN FUN FUN FEST PICKS: NOT METAL

Fun Fun Fun Fest is more than just about metal. It's about...fun? Fun is a pretty broad word. Here's some of the best stuff not going down on the Black Stage.

RUN DMC

Run DMC didn't invent hip-hop, but it's hard to imagine what the genre would be like without them. They invented swag with their Addidas, leather jackets, fedoras, and gold chains, and few have looked cooler since then. Friday, Orange Stage, 8:35.

"King of Rock"

ARAABMUZIK

You might have caught me lamenting his absence from the Austin Sleigh Bells date, and for good reason. Check him chopping up some Cannibal Corpse. Sunday, Blue Stage, 7:05.

"Digital Glitch (Pt. 2)"

BUN B

C'mon. If you know our love of Houston Hip-Hop, this is an obvious choice. Friday, Blue Stage, 7:55.

"Get Throwed" ft. Pimp C, Z-Ro, and Young Jeezy

EUGENE MIRMAN

Because God is just a 12-year-old boy with Asperger's. Sunday, Yellow Stage, 4:40.

Hampshire College 2012 Commencement Keynote Speach

KREAYSHAWN

You know this is gonna be a shitshow. Saturday, Blue Stage, 4:00 AND at ND 11:00.

"Summertime" ft. V-Nasty

Also, check our boy Justin from Axeslasher covering "Gucci Gucci."

BOB MOULD PERFORMING COPPER BLUE

As Minnesota's second greatest musical export (Prince can't be topped), Bob Mould help lay the foundation for modern punk and alternative rock, for better or worse. Friday, Orange Stage, 5:05.

Sugar - "The Act We Act"

NICKY DA B

Big Freedia brought the bounce to FFF last year, now it's Nicky Da B's turn. There will still be plenty of azz to go around. Saturday, The Belmont, 11:00 AND Sunday, Blue Stage, 2:25.

"Express Yourself" w/ Diplo

NOMEANSNO

Like punk, but also like technicality? Nomeansno are for you! Saturday, Yellow Stage, 6:45.

"Sex Mad"

DE LA SOUL

"Me, Myself, and I"

GIRL TALK

He ain't no DJ Shadow, but Gregg Gillis knows how to make some Franken-club-bangers you can't not sweat to. Saturday, Orange Stage, 8:50.

"Get It Get It"

PUBLIC IMAGE LTD.

That Johnny Lydon sure does have a big mouth, doesn't he? Saturday, Orange Stage, 7:50.
