    I'll keep my fingers crossed for "not going" but if they end up going I'll just not watch them. Definitely not headlining material either way.
    Nothing to see here, folks - just move along

    But "Human" has the best lyric's ever. How about Coldplay and Killers, then we can vote for which band is trying the hardest to be original and trendy at the same time.

    I saw this on Pitchfork, so I had that feeling too. Friday night headliner, maybe?

    This won't happen. After the failure of a headline that Jack Johnson was, Paul Tollet would never grab The Killers as headliners. If he could grab them for a good price as subheadliners, I wouldn't doubt them being there. But NEVER as headliners.

    I would bet that christmas fest is on 12/13, the day after the SF show, and that the killers will be there.

    The fact that The Killers are playing smaller venues on this tour means they will not be headlining at all (if they are even at Coachella)

    The Killers on CD are not that bad, but I agree, their live show sucks donkey cock. Brandon Flowers (worst name in rock n roll) has no stage presence or charisma. He always looks like a dear in the headlights and tries way to hard to act like a frontman.

    The Killers probably will go to Coachella if they're not going to play L.A., but no way are they going to headline. Not even Friday.

    And U2 would make an awesome Coachella, frozen pilgrim, if they played the correct things.

    Yeah, but what would make them suck is that they wouldn't, Alchemy. They don't know what's good any more.

    True. Which is why somebody needs to threaten a country on the periphery with additional famine and poverty for a Joshua Tree performance at Coachella.

    Also, threatening Bono that small children will be attacked every time he's seen wearing sunglasses if he doesn't play at Coachella.

    I don't think so. but that's because I think u2 is one of those bands that can't go backwards. bono's new superhuman ego and douchebaggery and the crappiness of their last offerings eclipses the potential for them playing to be good. so I guess you're right. it'd be ok if they played the right things, but there's no way they would. and bono would create such a big cloud of smug that it'd block out the sun.

    No, Ardentbiscuit, it's best not to. Remember always, when you look into the abyss, the abyss looks right back.

    Also:

    And now that the lyrics are finished, Im really proud of the lyrics on this album.

    If it is, it's even worse. I dunno, I was just going by what my ears.

    Thinking about it, I've heard that song twice today, and I cannot for the life of me remember the tune. Damn, Killers, I really didn't want you to be another one-good-album band.

    I'd say in those couple of posts, we've already given that lyric more thought than it deserves.

    A Blowchella poster consisting of nothing but disappointing or just plain bad acts from top to bottom would be awesome. But FEASIBLE acts, so yes to the Killers, and no to Creed.
