Seriously, its like every year they include exactly one band that makes everyone scratch their heads. Sort of amusing, actually.

I'd rather listen to Jupiter's Rings.

Yeah, they always have their token "Emo"/Pop-Punk group in there. Didn't Jack's Mannequin or whoever play last year?

How does Cloud Cult rate being in a Billy Talent thread? This is just so wrong.

Pretty sure Jack Mannequin was '07.

*edit* I saw Billy Talent back in '04 when Metric and Death From Above were the supporting acts. I went for the openers, not expecting much from Billy Talent. They surprised me. Big time.

Bullshit... and is one of their band members that guy from N'sync

I'll definitely be skipping cloud cult. They just suck anyway

Billy Talent play stadiums in Canada and a few countries in Europe. So when I saw them on the second to last line on Saturday I was like... "WTF?"

With that being said, Billy Talent are one of the acts I am most looking forward to on Saturday. They are a blast live. So full of energy, and the lead singer Benjamin and his onstage antics remind me a lot of Iggy Pop. When I saw them back in 2004 they actually blew the sound system. It was a ton of fun.

Never heard of him/it.

Sounds like he should be opening for Johnny Bravo.

Billy Talent are a "they." Their name is taken from a character in a Canadian movie called Hardcore Logo.

I think many people overlook Billy Talent. They are awesome live and have opened up for the Buzzcocks.
