This week, we go back to the summer of 2001, and Stereophonics are the cover stars of Kerrang, as they get ready to perform at Donnington.

Meanwhile, the surviving members of Nirvana are in a dispute with Courtney Love over the proposed release of unreleased Nirvana material. This story gets a double page feature with Kerrang even invite Nirvana fans to voice their opinion.
Anyone is predicted for great things. If you’re trying to keep up, that’s a band called Anyone.
It’s all about tours in this edition, as Kerrang goes on one massive tour with Rancid, Pennywise, AFI, New Found Glory, Alien Ant Farm and The Ataris, and joins Medadeth for their first ever concert in Poland.
Cover stars Stereophonics get eight pages, profiling their ten year journey from formation to performing at Donnington, a journey which Kerrang says had several mistakes, countless arguments and one near riot.
In concert reviews, Kerrang went to see Weezer, supported by Jimmy Eat World, whose album gets reviewed.
