Riot Fest Chicago Day 2: Blink-182, Public Enemy, Violent Femmes

Riot Fest Day Two Humboldt Park, Chicago Saturday, September 14 The Fall Out Boy craziness of the festival's first day carried over to Blink-182's set on Day 2. For about 15 minutes before the band took the stage, fans chanted the lyrics to songs like "What's My Age Again," "All the Small Things" and Blink's adaptation of George Carlin's seven dirty words.

Things also got a little violent--Chicago police report that at least eight people were injured at the festival.
