The lineup comes out and Green Day and REM are headlining?

Be fine with it as long as the rest of the lineup was good. It would be like Coachella this year: One headliner I wouldn't want to see, another I would catch for a little. It's all about the smaller acts.

WOW!
There would have to be some really strong sub headliners/ secondary acts.

Guy add a third act since coach is 3 days.

I am coming all the way from chicago- so I would probably be holding out for the third headliner to be someone really huge,to make the trip out West.

Honestly- with the music festivals out here like lolla, vfest,vinefest, & pitchfork. I think I might take a pass on coach '08.

There would have to be some really superb supporting acts.

Wait where did greenday rumors get started?
I thought it was no doubt rumored to headline.
WOW! I am getting nervous now.

Could you imagine Green Day and No Doubt headlining?

I would but I can't think of any bands on the level of those two.

Yeah for Chicago!

Right on faxman. Band A has one of the greatest guitarists, bassists, and songwriters all in the same band, and Bands B & C have, ummm....well...they have....

I wouldn't mind REM as an outdoor stage headliner but not a main stage headliner!

Green Day and No Doubt! :(

Oh man, that would suck. I would have to watch other stages. I try to stick to music that is still relevant to the modern world.

If they did turn out to be headliners I would have faith that there would plenty of other stuff to watch on other stages! There always is! Coachella hasn't let me down yet.

im thinking the trenchcoat bit has to do with the supposed trenchcoat mafia. green day/REM headlining=columbine/trenchcoat
lets go bowling was my play on the movie "bowling for columbine." also a band.

You are insane. So you put R.E.M. on par with the Lemonheads who haven't had a hit in 15 years!

I'll say it again. You are insane.



Green Day and No Doubt! :(

Oh man, that would suck. I would have to watch other stages. I try to stick to music that is still relevant to the modern world.

How is Green Day not relevant? I guess that dismisses every reunion as well since whatever band reunites certainly isn't relevant.

Ardentbiscuit

You are comparing that to the Lemonheads?? They went on at like 1 pm. I wouldn't put R.E.M. on that early.

I love the band! And they would be fine on the main stage. I just don't think they would have a huge impact as an end of the day headliner. That's all I am saying!

I used to be a huge fan of Green Day. When I first heard them back in the look out days I found them to quite revolutionary. As time evolved and my taste in music changed and by the time they had major label success I had moved on to other generes of music.

Lots of bands have this problem (at least to me) where they start out revolutionary and then end up in a fixed pattern and rarely experiment or take chances.

There are certain artists out there who seem to always be able to re invent themselves (eg. David Bowie) and stay interesting even as the years progress.

Plus, Green Day will bring more Kroq types.

1. What's wrong with R.E.M.?

2. The main stage SUXXXXX anyways! You'll have way more fun with me. Intimate fun.

Did you read my response?? Nothing is wrong with R.E.M.

I think they are fantastic.

Both better than the Chili Peppers. I'll take it!

Amen. Neither one seem a good fit, but neither was Rage and RHCP. As long as the undercard is strong, that's all most people care about.

I haven't seen Green Day in about 14 years, but they were great then, and they've only gotten better musically since then. I would be a little iffier on REM, since they seem so far past their prime.

No Doubt would have been fine a couple years ago, but Gwen's solo stuff is too embarrassing to overcome. Seems like they wouldn't headline anyway, but maybe I'm underestimating the So-Cal draw.

No, they headlined the outdoor stage.

Ardentbiscuit

Wow, Lemonheads did headline the outdoor stage. I never even stopped by that stage that night! :)

I guess I should pay more attention.

They definitely should not have been headlining. The few times I have seen them I almost fell asleep. I find their music pretty boring.

I just remember when they first came out girls were after Evan Dando kind like that Jared Leto from 30 Seconds to Mars. That's his name right? I'm too lazy to look it up.

But M Sparks, you totally explained in what I was unable to explain why I am on the fence about R.E.M. at Coachella.

Thanks for posting that!

Honestly for me it's always been about the undercards and early day acts. The headliners are a bonus if they're good.

Every year I have this war with my friends because they want to get there between 5 and 7pm and I want to be there for the opening acts.

We always end up in separate cars. :)

I totally agree and frankly Greenday is a good live band to see and if its not your thing I'm sure alternative activities can be found :)

I wouldn't mind REM at all.

In '07 I missed Bjork (for Gogol) and RCHP (for LCD Soundsystem) and I was perfectly fine with skipping the headliners.

Ardentbiscuit
01-05-2008, 12:42 PM
I can miss the headliners too like my friends who sat through Coldplay while I was watching Chemical Brothers.

Those fools!

I don't mind R.E.M. at all. I would love to see them. They just don't make me really giddy like previous Coachella rumors.

And now that they are playing SXSW and Langerado it seems even less exciting.

I'm used to festivals copying Coachella not the other way around. :)

I think we can count REM out if they are doing 2 fests before Coachella...maybe they will do Sasquatch or Bonnaroo...

I am not paying full price if No Doubt is headlining, I am just not going to do it.
