Every year on this day, May 16th, punk fans across the nation celebrate Lagwagon and the song May 16th.
Why? Maybe it’s because it’s a really good song? Or maybe it had a deeper meaning?
May 16th was actually the wedding day of a friend of the lead singer, Joey Cape. They had a falling out and he wasn’t invited. During the wedding, Cape was at a friend’s house and heard about the wedding ceremony. That date should have been meaningful, yet it ended up being “just another Saturday”.
