In a universe where bands come and go as buzz and trends come and go, sticking around and remaining relevant almost feels like an impossible feat. When you're Goldfinger, however, it comes naturally...20 years of it, in fact.

The California ska punk band played an early slot at Day One of Amnesia Rockfest, powering through beloved '90s hits and concluding with their cover of "99 Red Balloons," complete with "This is an anti-war song," cheers.

Watching frontman John Feldmann is like watching a master at their craft. He knows how to make even the most casual of fans feel die-hard, as if they know all the lyrics, all the records. He kept thanking the audience for their band's legacy ("Twenty years later and I'm still here!") 

When it was time to perform their hit, "Superman," best known for it's place as one of the more iconic tunes on Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Feldy cheered, "Who could've known the power of a video game?" We're not sure, but when the song is good, people follow.
