    I agree... too much Beastie hate. Although, I have seen them twice in the last year ( near the front at the "secret" Fonda show last year, and the first of the two Greek Theatre shows last week ), so I'm not ready to see them as a Coachella headliner until at least 2009, just because I'd like to, you know, mix it up a bit and see bands I don't get to see all the time.

    If I had to not see a band up on the Coachella main stage again, it'd be Rage and Coldplay.

    But I do agree with PassiveTheory... this is a pretty damn negative thread.

    Pshh, you know you guys would be down to see Dookie or some old Green Day material, that is if they decide to play without dressing like complete idiot scenesters.

    Beastie Boys already stunk up Coachella with their hour of inane political ranting sandwiched in between non-classic, crap new songs and records flying all over the place.

    I for some reason believe that Foo Fighters are going to be at Coachella in 08. I dont know if they are going to headline but i have a feeling they are going to be there.

    Basically, the only people I dont want to see there next year are... The Smashing Pumkins and Coldplay. Fuck both of them!

    Why all the hate for No Doubt? Did you all hate them before Gwen went solo?

    No Doubt arent amazing or anything, they are just a really fun band. I wouldn't freak out and buy tickets to one of their shows if the reunited and went on tour... but if they were at Coachella, I would definately go see them.

    And I dont know if GV would book Foo Fighters to headline... but it wouldnt surprise me if they were on it next year. I wouldnt complain either. The Foo Fighters put on a kick ass show! Both electric and acoustic.

    I have heard even from fans on the Beasties message boards that their Coachella performance was not very good at all. Although every time I have seen them, they have been awesome, not to mention pretty funny.

    Interesting to note, but that same year ( 2003 ), the Black Eyed Peas played. I kept the flyer from the show ( being a Beasties fan, but not being able to attend ), and that shit floored me.
