Bonnaroo may be known for its jammy tendencies, but that didn't stop agit-rockers Against Me! from playing a set that was as economical as it was appropriately thrashing.Before their set, SPIN.com's William Goodman spoke to lead singer Tom Gabel about working on the follow-up to Spin's 2007 Record of the Year, New Wave, and what he thinks the important issues -- not to mention candidates -- are for the upcoming election.
