This year, you can ring in the Fourth of July with a juicy metal, hardcore and screamo burger when the The Rockstar Mayhem Festival fires up its grills at Nampa's Idaho Center.

One of the festival's headliners is metal band Slipknot, which will perform a tribute to founding member and bassist Paul Gray, who passed away in 2010.

Another Mayhem Festival headliner, Anthrax, has promised a more "bare bones, guerilla" set at this year's show.

"We decided to pattern the Mayhem set on the kind of shows The Ramones used to do. ... No lulls, no filler, totally in your face," Anthrax's Charlie Benante said in a press release.

Rockstar Mayhem will also include performances by Slayer, Motorhead, The Devil Wears Prada, White Chapel, Betraying the Martyrs, Asking Alexandria and As I lay Dying.
