Thread: Hard punk/metal act for Coachella...

  1. #1

    Default Hard punk/metal act for Coachella...

    Who would you like to see as this year's hard punk/metal act?



    i'd say all these are better choices than Enter Shikari, Scars on Broadway, & Serj Tankian...

    I think Ministry or Sex Pistols would maybe be the best fit.

    Killswitch Engage is the joke of the joke genre of metalcore.

    Yeah, sorry but this list sucks. One of the only decent bands on it (Ministry) broke up for good so they have about a 0% chance of playing.

    i like otep and i'd say no to coachella for them but i'd say sex pistols off the list would be the most likely...

    I didn't know. So, Ministry was basically Al Jourgensen, just like NiN is Trent Reznor?

    Not sure how you are putting Dir en grey in the same category as Killswitch Engage and Otep.

    By the way, it's Dir en grey not Dir En Grey.

    Heh...

    I am 48. My daughter started listening to them years ago, and I got hooked.

    There is a lot of emotion and the music is actually more complex than you might think at first.

    I know a majority of their fans are teenage girls...

    They are very good live.

    I've heard Bad Brains still kick ass live. And The Sex Pistols would be awesome for many reasons. I dont think there is anyone who would be indifferent towards The Sex Pistols at Coachella. People would either love it or hate it.

    Bad Brains live are cool , just to say you've seen them, but no they're not very enthusiastic. Still play a lot of classics, "I Against I," etc.

    oh god please fucking no

    some of the worst bands I've ever seen live:

    inflames
    children of bodom
    as I lay dying
    killswitch engage
    american head charge
    from first to last


    some GOOD live metal:
    megadeth have greatly improved their live show. not saying they're coachella material. they'd have to go on at night on an outdoor stage- no other way they'd do it

    mudvayne, although rather outside of most coachella audience's realm, are an incredibly technical, very tight live band. their bass player absolutely can not be human. there's just no way. he's at least part machine. they've got two really good albums, one 50/50, and one I haven't heard yet. they're also not averse to smaller venues (nighttime gobi against a headliner maybe?), as I saw them in a small club right after they did the main stage at rock am ring

    gwar are impossibly tight live. I don't know HOW they manage to shred like that in those costumes, but they do it. the sound is absolutely punishing.
