I'm not that into the Strokes, in fact I know probably 2 songs by them, but I was thoroughly impressed by their Melbourne gig earlier this year. They don't put on a show, but they sound amazing. Easily one of the best sounding live bands I've seen.

Would be keen to see them again at Coachella.

If Outside Lands deemed the Strokes as less than headlining status (i.e. less than Tenacious D, Jack Johnson, and two surviving GD members hosting a jam session), then there is no way they can headline Coachella. Now let's just move on with our lives.

What's your point? If you're going by how many albums they've released, The Strokes will have 4 albums out versus 3 from Arcade Fire. If it took the bands 10 years or 5 years is pretty irrelevant when it comes if either of them should headline or not.

That said, as much as I love the Strokes, they only should go as high as an LCD Soundsystem or Pavement sub headlining slot. Then again, the Killers headlined Saturday in 09 so anything could happen.

Maybe Coachella is going into a trend or pattern where Saturday's headliner is lackluster (killers, muse) after Prince brain fucked the polo field. If that's the case I'd rather have the Strokes or Arcade Fire headline that day instead of the beastie boys or a lady Gaga set.

After seeing The Strokes at outside lands this year, they are easily a headliner. Just because arcade fire has a gigantic billboard projection screen and a gigantic light pole for their background on stage doesnt make them god like headliners. Each band has a bland album "first impressions of the earth" and Arcade Fires "neon bible" has 1 or 2 good songs just like first impressions. The Strokes hands down deserves to be at the polo fields this year as much as Arcade Fire does this year.

the Strokes and Arcade will both be there... simma dwn plzzzzz.

met Julian, worked two of his cali shows when he was doin the solo thing. Good guy, actualy enjoyed that material as much as any of the strokes stuff. If this was the UK then this argument would easily go their way, and yes i know this isnt canada either... but i feel Arcade has a much bigger draw these days, and the latest album has had a bit more running room, who knows how the new Strokes albums going to sound.

and not to discredit the Strokes one bit, i believe if they do perform, itll be closing the outdoor one of the nights.

The Strokes headlining huh? Maybe if the already planned headliner got food poisoning and they needed a last minute replacement or something.

Also, I know The Strokes headlined Outside Lands and Lolla. That does not make them Coachella headliners. Phoenix(headined Lolla) are not Coachella headliners. At least not in 2010. Further(headlined Outside Lands) would NEVER headline Coachella.

My point is that The Strokes have fallen off of the map completely in the time that it's taken Arcade Fire's career to form, be heard of, and be huge. That's very relevant. I also like The Strokes and agree that the 2nd/3rd spot is as high as you will see them on the bill. Hopefully.

My point is that The Strokes have fallen off of the map completely in the time that it's taken Arcade Fire's career to form, be heard of, and be huge. That's very relevant. I also like The Strokes and agree that the 2nd/3rd spot is as high as you will see them on the bill. Hopefully.

that's what we're saying, they could make a good comeback in coachella after 5 years without a new album, that could be the first festival where they debut their new material...its almost the same deal with bright eyes but i think the strokes could get a better spot than them

Do people care about new material from the Strokes? it's nice, but not essential. Sorta like the first DEVO album in 20 years.

For a "comeback" like that to generate some kind of pull, they'd need to have left people wanting more with their last releases last time around. I don't think they really did.

They wont be headliners but...who cares? :) Being able to see The Strokes and it not being the end of a Coachella night is awesome.

Here's their setlist from ACL. I would be more than happy with this, possibly with an added new song from their upcoming album.

Is This It
Hard to Explain
You Only Live Once
Someday
Under Control
Juicebox
Trying Your Luck
Evening Sun
Reptilia
Last Nite
New York City Cops
Vision of Division
Between Love & Hate
Take It or Leave It

Can you people stop grouping Jay-Z with these other acts? The guy was a legit headliner. He's arguably the biggest hip hop artist of the past two decades. Just stop it already.

What idiots are comparing Arcade Fire to The Strokes?

Two COMPLETELY different styles. It'd be like comparing TV On the Radio to The White Stripes.

I understand if you're comparing their "headliner" status, but honestly, who gives a FUCK who gets to be at the top of the bill? Everybody's gonna see who THEY wanna see at the end of the day. Just because you like AF or the Strokes more doesn't mean that they're gonna be headliners.

On the one hand, AF has been BIG this past year. You don't get to number one on the billboards without getting popular. They're this year's Phoenix in terms of popularity and shit.

On the other, The Strokes ARE the biggest rock band of the new millenium, hands down. Though 2001 was a long time ago, Is This It and Room on Fire still hold their own as some of the best ROCK albums of the past decade.

At the end of the day, none of you guys set up the lineup for Coachella, so none of you will ever know who is more likely to headline.


Aaaaand YES. People DO care about new Strokes material. Julian Casablancas ALONE was on the 4th line of the bill last year. He sold out a lot of shows on his tour. If ONE member can generate such a pull, imagine the whole fucking band.

So they have this totally awesome commercial, for the show, on both local alternative radio stations (it must have been made by the peps at the Cosmo). It just mashes up a bunch of sweet songs. Anyways, I was listening to the radio station this morning and they had a giveaway were the 10th caller could decide between 2 free The Strokes tickets or 2 free 311 tickets. The caller picked the 311 tickets.

Yeah. I couldn't believe it. I'm hoping that ticket prices will be too expensive for a lot of people and/or some fools will think that they are too cool to pay 50 bucks for the Strokes. Also, I hope that a lot of the younger kids don't know who the Strokes are because they have been MIA for the last few years. IDK. I just want the tickets in my hand. The Cosmo has really won me over.
