Ladies and Gentlemen,

I implore you all to boo Kanye West off the stage during his performance Sunday night. Coachella and Kanye West should never mix. We must unite to prevent this travesty from ever occurring again.

…best case scenario, delicate Kanye’s fragile ego is damaged after he catches wind that at least one person will be booing him causing him to decide not to perform and opening up a spot for Daft Punk in the .000000000000001% chance that they change their minds and want to perform at Coachella. Yes, a .000000000000001% that Daft Punk will attend is better than a 100% chance that Kanye will attend.

You can't hear 1% of the crowd booing while 99% of the crowd is cheering. People get so riled up when they hate a headliner, yet, people rarely watch a big act that they hate while there's 4-6 other acts on at other stages.

Was on the fence about Kanye til I heard his new album. It really is as good as everyone is making it out to be. I really hope he plays BLAME GAME, best song on the album IMO. Kanye really does have good music in his hip-hop. All the douches will be at KOL, the hipsters will be at Arcade Fire, and a little bit of both will be at Kanye, so there's no getting around either of those crowds really.

I am sure there are several artists have completely tanked and fucked up their performances over the years. Sly Stone is notorious for this (see: Coachella 2010). I hear stories of rock stars going on stage and completely screwing up and pissing off the crowd because they were strung out on heroin, drunk, etc.

The point is that there are plenty of people - like myself - who enjoy music from all genres and couldn't give a fuck less if an artist is "mainstream".

Kanye West is the shit and has been for a decade or so. Is there plenty of crap he released in the process? Of course. But what great musical artist hasn't released their fair portion of crap? Most of the ones that didn't either retired young or died young.

Paul McCartney released a lot of absolute crap after the Beatles, but he is still viewed as a legend. The evolution of Jefferson Airplane into the Starrship trash it became in the 80's was an embarrassment, but Grace Slick is still regarded as amazing in most music-lover's eyes.

There are plenty of people who have been perceived as tools, docuhebags, morons or whatever name/insult you want to put in place there. Thom Yorke has been referred to as a cold, arrogant prick by some. Same with Noel/Liam Gallaghers.

Personally, I don't give a shit if the artist is a douche. If he/she/they create music I enjoy, I listen. Kanye West has been one of my favorite producers in hip hop since the early 2000's. I still have (somewhere) a ten minute (approximate timeframe) freestyle of Kanye and Common going back and forth that's still one of the best sessions I have heard up to this day.

Not to mention, anyone who can go into a studio with their mouth wired shut after getting into a car accident that nearly killed them and create an EXCELLENT hip hop track like "Through the Wire" gets a lifetime of respect from me.

Most of the hate towards Kanye, comes from his antics, not his music. He has made some really good hip hop albums, IMO and this is coming from a guy that grew up on Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, NWA, Too Short, Brotha Lynch, Wu Tang, Nas, Jay-Z, 2 Pac, Biggie, A Tribe Called Quest, Pharcyde etc.... I have a wide variety of taste in hip hop and to me, Kanye West is a very legit artist that is on the road to becoming one of the biggest names and acts to ever grace hip hop culture.

So, in short, Kanye is legit and if you don't believe so, don't watch him. Plenty of people, like myself, will enjoy watching him.

So you're saying that I should take time out of a festival that occurs once a year to go and boo someone who I may not particularly care for?

You could just go see someone else who is playing at the same time across the field.

Sucks that you have to waste time in your limited life to stress out and hate someone because they don't sing songs you like.

I'm not a Kanye fan but I'm not gonna take time out of my life, especially at Coachella, to stress out and hate on the guy. He will win anyway...lol

Last year when I walked away from the bore fest sunday night that was the Gorillaz I found no other acts (Sly Stone doesn't count as a real act). Hopefully GV learns from their mistake last year and puts on other acts during the Sunday headliner so I have something to wander to.

I'm not even really a fan, but I have to admit that Kanye West is a totally legitimate headliner. He's been a superstar for nearly a decade and his work has been consistently popular, influential, and well-received. Sure he's a douche, but I honestly don't care and if you do you don't have to watch him. You'll find something else to enjoy at that time, or you can just head to your car early. If you'd rather boo someone you don't care for than try to enjoy something else I question why you even want to attend this festival.

This Ryan. is the biggest idiot I've ever come across. First of all Kanye is the most talented artist at Coachella this year hands down. Now I don't mean to offend the other artists by any means but Kanye is special, he is Michael Jackson special, as in he will go down as the greatest R&B musician of our generation. I not only will not stand for anyone booing him at Coachella, I will actually physically harm anyone within 20 feet of me who is. I'm not usually a confrontational person but things change when people don't respect some of the Greatest ever. I would honestly do the same if someone booed the Beatles, the Stones, the Who, Nirvana, Radiohead and others. I find it appalling that some people have such a small depth of music that they cannot appreciate other genres. Guys music comes in all shapes and sizes and no matter who someones' ideas, political beliefs, color, creed, or religion are, if their music is great then we should just sit back and enjoy the ride. Who is with me to fight back at anyone that agrees with the thread starter and give Kanye the respect he deserves.

While I cannot deny Kanye has talent, it pains me to think he is considered by some one of the greatest musicians of our generation. He's just such a douchebag, I don't care how many awards he has won it can't take away from that fact. And he is definitely not the most talented artist at Coachella, don't even start with that. He is maybe the most talented producer, but the guy is not an exceptional lyricist or rapper.

All that being said though his show will still be a thousand times more interested than the also douchebag Kings of Leon. Something just burns me inside that these assholes get to headline Coachella, but I guess it's their time.

His live shows are amazing from what I've heard and he does ALL of this while still being attacked by the media and idiot haters like a lot of people on this forum. PLEASE someone explain how this guy sucks & doesn't deserve to be a headliner for Coachella? I'm starting to think Coachella doesn't deserve to have Kanye West and get stuck with some band from the 70's who half the band members are dead.

Kanye doesn't make horrible music, but what you're saying that he's going down as the best rnb artist of our time might be true; only because true R&B is dead and this crap that we are producing right now could hardly be called music. I'm sorry to be the old man here but our generation's music sucks, last good bands and artists were in the nineties and I am 100% sure all of this 2000 era crap will all fade away never to return again, it's music that wasn't constructed to last, most music today is only made to make fast money cashing in on trends and gimmicks. In 50 years time you'll ask some kid "you know Kanye?" the answer will be "what is a Kanye?"

I'm sorry to be the old man here but our generation's music sucks, last good bands and artists were in the nineties and I am 100% sure all of this 2000 era crap will all fade away never to return again, it's music that wasn't constructed to last, most music today is only made to make fast money cashing in on trends and gimmicks. In 50 years time you'll ask some kid "you know Kanye?" the answer will be "what is a Kanye?"

There were probably tons of old people in the 50s - 90s that were saying the same things you are, during those times. Music is always changing and evolving, we as fans have to decide if we are going to stay stagnant or change with it. I prefer the latter but I guess I understand the "when I was your age I walked through ten feet of snow..." method as well

The last big superstars we had were Kurt Cobain, Michael jackson, Prince, Tupac and Biggie.

We had a bit of an Eminem Epidemic there for a while in the early 2000s and since then there has been nothing that has warrented that kind of starpower or innovation.

I'm sure i've missed a few, but there hasnt been something like a phenomenon :) for a very, very long time.

Other than a drunken mistake on an irrelevant cable awards show, I can't figure out for the life of me why people are so repulsed by Kanye. He has an ego? That is fundamentally unique to him, right?

Jay-z is not a superstar of that caliber to you? Not going to argue against the premise that the oughts were short of lasting musical personalities, but it would appear to me that Jay-z may be the only one that catapulted himself to that level during that decade.

I think your nostalgia for the 90s may be hamstringing your judgment then bro.

I don't have any nostalgia for the nineties, one of my least favorite decades of music actually. I'm not dissing Jay-z, I saw his set at coachella and loved it. I'm just simply stating that he is not a phenomenon, he's just really good.

Kanye fans are like highschool students that try too hard to be popular. They inflate the cool kid's ego and tell him he's talented, just so they can experience the illusion of being cool by wearing shutter shades and dissing little girls.

You're pretty talented at creating analogies that make absolutely no sense. And if high school memories bother you, I recommend seeking professional therapy.

Did you go to high school? Because if that doesn't make sense to you, i'm severely doubting you received that calibre of education.

I do better as a pessimist, always prepared for the worst. And let's face it, 80% of the people here get off on being assholes, if anything it cheers them up.

I shouldn't have chuckled at this, but I did. Maybe the special guest is the guy who performed plastic surgery on his mother?

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I implore you all to boo Kanye West off the stage during his performance Sunday night. Coachella and Kanye West should never mix. We must unite to prevent this travesty from ever occurring again.

…best case scenario, delicate Kanye’s fragile ego is damaged after he catches wind that at least one person will be booing him causing him to decide not to perform and opening up a spot for Daft Punk in the .000000000000001% chance that they change their minds and want to perform at Coachella. Yes, a .000000000000001% that Daft Punk will attend is better than a 100% chance that Kanye will attend.

..God I despise people like you. When I'm at Coachella, I'll be dancing with a rainbow flag - please stay away from me. Thank you,
