Five guys in Fresno take a pledge to bring The Dictators music to life, even though there isn't a White Castle within 2000 miles. Manifest Destiny has been touted as the World's Greatest Tribute to The World's Greatest Band Who You Never Heard Of. But, in fact, the Dictators are represented in The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's punk section. Rolling Stone described them as the missing link between 70's glam and punk rock. And members of Manifest Destiny have actually done 2 tours as support act with The Dictators! Manifest Destiny... SWORN TO FUN AND LOYAL TO NONE!!! DFFD (Dictators Forever, Forever Dictators!)
