96.5 the Buzz is starting beef with Kanrocksas

Uh, ever hear of a little song called "Swallowed," Kanrocksas?

Oh, snap! The Buzz Beach Ball 2011 announcement is up on the 96.5 the Buzz website, and it opens with a thinly veiled shot at Kanrocksas


Sezz the Buzz: 

Now, there are a lot of things we would spend 200 bucks on ... a high class call girl, a shopping spree at Forever 21 or Valtrex ... but camping on a race track, pissin' in a portapotty and watching a white rapper ain't one of 'em....  

It's obviously a jab at Kanrocksas, which is charging $179 for a two-day pass and boasts Eminem as a headliner. The Buzz's Beach Ball thing -- which is happening at LiveStrong Sporting Park on Friday, August 19, two weeks after Kanrocksas -- has a predictably '90s lineup with headliners Incubus, Jane's Addiction and Bush

I'm conflicted. Kanrocksas is a bit overpriced; there's just not enough big draws to justify that ticket price ($225 the day of the event). But the Buzz's show ($45 and on sale Friday at 10 a.m.) isn't exactly looking like a barnburner. I mean, Bush reunion? Don't get me wrong, I bumped Sixteen Stone when I was 12, but I don't know anybody who's been waiting 15 years to hear them play "Swallowed" live. 

And what's with hatin' on Eminem? What do you guys think? Buzz just being grouchy? Or are they doing the right thing calling out those high ticket prices?
