Most overrated, NOT WORST. We all know everybody and their uncle's would vote JJ on that one.

this thread is stupid. half of these bands aren't even over-hyped to begin with.

Um... My vote goes for JJ because he shouldn't headline anything.

Having Jack Johnson headline is like if Woodstock had had Dan Fogelberg headline...

I agree. I just voted Jack Johnson, because I think Coachella could have gotten a much better headliner than him. I wouldn't mind catching some of his set, though. Unfortuneately, I think I'll be all tied up in the Sahara.

Uh, really? JJ headlining 4 world class festivals this year, being on the cover of a handful of magazines (including RS), and having a soon to be multi-platinum album is not "over-hyped"?

JJ is the absolute epitome of over-hyped. He's not awful, he doesn't make me want to kill my dog, but he's not good either and is not worthy of the praise and accolades that he's receiving.


edit: my bad. I just realized you said "half of those bands..." I'm assuming JJ is in the other half? My reading skills are terrible so early in the morning.

Jack Johnson isn't rock star status.. so he's not exciting to be a headliner. But.. and no matter how weak this sounds, his songs are about peace, loving relationships, and consciousness/awareness. ..

...and killing people. he's a pretty angry guy.

I like how Justice is in italics because they are the ones that really deserve to win.

I went Death Cab cause I think they got lucky off of a lame ass hit that inspired the minds of aspiring 12 year old indie kids across the globe. Plus they're billed so god damn high. 2 or 3 lines down would be appropriate.

justice is in italics because thats how vBulletin lets you know who you voted for. fatboy slim was in italics for me because hey, thats who i voted for. his set was pretty boring to me. justice didnt impress me much either. i did leave a bit early but the first 20 mins just felt like the set was going nowhere


Hot Chip is fucking awful.

i havent heard their album just a few songs but that nerdy little devo wannabe singer has the most annoying fucking voice i have heard on the radio in years

oh and tegan and sara also suck. im sure they're real inspiring and deep if you are a 15 year old lesbian trying to find your place in the world, but every song of theirs i've heard just bores me.

Yup.

Yup.


DCFC. Hands down.

But since the above 2 weren't on the poll, I voted for them too.

Hot Chip is alright. Just got old a bit fast. I wish I could have seen their set, but missing their set allowed me to be 3-4 rows back for the epic saturday mainstage finish starting at 7 PM.

Overrated? Justice.

They are good, no doubt about it.

But not the gods that their fans put them out to be.

I didn't bump it, it was at the top because someone voted apparently.
