    Default its that time!! pick your 3 top tier headliners!

    ok we have all been trying to figure out the lineup but not alot of info has come out on headliners this year so go ahead and make your final top 3 predictions!

    for me its hard this year but i narrowed it down to 10( its 6am here so i probably missed some but oh well;

    here are the 3 i think will headline and im not going by preference.
    COLDPLAY
    REM
    THE SMASHING PUMPKINS

    here are the 3 i want to see:
    PRINCE
    REM
    RADIOHEAD

    here are 3 that are possible also:

    PEARL JAM
    THE BEASTIE BOYS
    OASIS

    finally here are 4 that might be ready to graduate to become top tier headliners:
    MUSE
    THE KILLERS
    THE WHITE STRIPES
    KANYE WEST

    pick whoever but try to stick to actual top tier headliners. i know some of u will say "i hate coldplay!" and i might be one of them, but they could very well headline so lets see! remember headliners only....... 100 days till coachella!!

    Portishead needs one more stellar album before becoming a headliner IMO.

    I love how ever since my thread about Pearl Jam, people are suddenly guessing they'll headline (whereas they were rarely mentioned before).

    Goes to show how throwing a name out with a little research to back up your guess goes a long way on this board.

    Anyway, here's my wish:
    Pearl Jam
    R.E.M.
    Radiohead

    But my prediction is:
    R.E.M.
    two others I won't really care about (perhaps No Doubt and somebody like Portishead?)

    With Eddie Vedder doing a solo, non-headliner set.

    Why do people keep talking about Kanye West? He fucking sucks. This thread begins and ends with MassiveChemicalPunk's post. Also Pearl Jam would be spectacular, anyone who says different should be beat in the head with a bag of rusty nails.

    It has not dawn on my yet of what contribution Kanye has made to the alternative/inde genre...he's fucking lame as far as I'm concerned but I did have fun during his 06 performance.
