    The lineup comes out and Green Day and REM are headlining?

    Be fine with it as long as the rest of the lineup was good. It would be like Coachella this year: One headliner I wouldn't want to see, another I would catch for a little. It's all about the smaller acts.

    WOW!
    There would have to be some really strong sub headliners/ secondary acts.

    Guy add a third act since coach is 3 days.

    I am coming all the way from chicago- so I would probably be holding out for the third headliner to be someone really huge,to make the trip out West.

    Honestly- with the music festivals out here like lolla, vfest,vinefest, & pitchfork. I think I might take a pass on coach '08.

    I would but I can't think of any bands on the level of those two.

    Yeah for Chicago!

    Right on faxman. Band A has one of the greatest guitarists, bassists, and songwriters all in the same band, and Bands B & C have, ummm....well...they have....

    I wouldn't mind REM as an outdoor stage headliner but not a main stage headliner!

    Green Day and No Doubt!

    Oh man, that would suck. I would have to watch other stages. I try to stick to music that is still relevant to the modern world.

    If they did turn out to be headliners I would have faith that there would plenty of other stuff to watch on other stages! There always is! Coachella hasn't let me down yet.

    You are insane. So you put R.E.M. on par with the Lemonheads who haven't had a hit in 15 years!

    I'll say it again. You are insane.

    Green Day and No Doubt!

    How is Green Day not relevant? I guess that dismisses every reunion as well since whatever band reunites certainly isn't relevant.

    You are comparing that to the Lemonheads?? They went on at like 1 pm. I wouldn't put R.E.M. on that early.

    I love the band! And they would be fine on the main stage. I just don't think they would have a huge impact as an end of the day headliner. That's all I am saying!

    I used to be a huge fan of Green Day. When I first heard them back in the look out days I found them to quite revolutionary. As time evolved and my taste in music changed and by the time they had major label success I had moved on to other generes of music.

    Lots of bands have this problem (at least to me) where they start out revolutionary and then end up in a fixed pattern and rarely experiment or take chances.

    There are certain artists out there who seem to always be able to re invent themselves (eg. David Bowie) and stay interesting even as the years progress.

    Plus, Green Day will bring more Kroq types.

    1. What's wrong with R.E.M.?

    2. The main stage SUXXXXX anyways! You'll have way more fun with me. Intimate fun.
    Hi! I'm Outdoor Theatre! You might remember me from such performances as Arcade Fire, At the Drive-in, Broken Social Scene, Jarvis Cocker, DJ Shadow, Mogwai, Sonic Youth, the Swell Season, and Underworld.

    Amen. Neither one seem a good fit, but neither was Rage and RHCP. As long as the undercard is strong, that's all most people care about.

    I haven't seen Green Day in about 14 years, but they were great then, and they've only gotten better musically since then. I would be a little iffier on REM, since they seem so far past their prime.

    No Doubt would have been fine a couple years ago, but Gwen's solo stuff is too embarrassing to overcome. Seems like they wouldn't headline anyway, but maybe I'm underestimating the So-Cal draw.
