Worse than Bonnaroo. That's pretty damn rare.

Unless there's a Coldplay/Mountain Goats/Phantogram/Girl Talk/DFA 1979/The Cars/Cee-Lo day, I don't give a shit.

Where the hell is Okkervil?

I can't believe Okkervil wasn't on the list. They were all but confirmed tonight at the lineup release party. Someone is a damn liar. That fucker Bono must've been there.

Well, Eminem has had a pretty damn successful career resurgence, at least in terms of album sales/popularity/radio hits. So, that one makes sense I think.

But, yes, Coldplay listed behind Foo Fighters is a bit off. No matter what one thinks of them, Coldplay are a bigger band than Foo Fighters, without question. They should have probably gotten top billing.

Four top line acts? Seven bands scrolling on the Lolla page? I'm so confused as to what's going on.

Foo Fighters have been around longer.

Plus there's Grohl's pedigree.

It's not that cut-and-dried.

I guess I'm more referring to the idea that his last two albums have been two of his worst, I feel like in general he's just not as well regarded as he's been in the past, especially with the Lolla crowd.

The Perry Ferrell of '91 would have overdosed had he known Coldplay was headlining his festival, let alone over a rawk band.

He's become the Al Davis of music festivals now though. I'm not sure he knows what year it is, which would explain the lack of ANYTHING relating to the anniversary, like, I dunno, Smashing Pumpkins or Pearl Jam. Vedder is doing shit, anyway.

Lolla is just a breeding ground for sin. Sex, drugs, under-age drinking, over-age drinking, GAF, etc....you name it, and if it's morally wrong or just irresponsible, it's happening at Lolla. Look at this photo I took there a few years ago:



Fucking heathens.

I'm campaigning against Lolla, definitely. Not because of the sin though, unless you count this lineup as one.

You don't leave a baby within reach of a can of Coke. The Sprite and water, sure. But caffeine? No.

Not really a Foo Fighters fan, either, aside from that first album.

Exactly. Of course, I don't think fucking Metallica headlining in 1996 was part of his original vision, either. That's the year I stopped going.
