Thread: Best heavy band for Coachella

  1. #1

    Default Best heavy band for Coachella

    Granted, heavy bands are a rare occurance at Coachella so I tried to make the choices realistic by keeping it to bands that may somehow fit the vibe of Coachella. What heavy band would you rather see?

    Fuck 2002 and earlier, I want to hear all of it.

    I would've picked Isis, but how can I when I've never seen System either? System first, and every Coachella after that I'll say Isis.

    I agree, I can never take that band seriously. The appeal is beyond me.

    Dear God. Rammstein? Really? Anyone who'd willingly line up to see those disgusting, talentless krauts chase each other around with with their rubber penises flopping out of their pants and squirting fake semen into the crowd certainly deserve a load in the eye. Y'all are the reason heavy music has a bad name these days. Mastadon or Fucked Up - all the way.

    You must be joking. Rammstein puts on ass-kickingly fantastic live shows. Sorry if the homoerotic humor gave you a boner. Make sure you clear out the pipes before the show next time.

    We need Rammstein with full pyro for Coachella. Fucking sick.

    Out of these, KMFDM, because it's danceable, and they have a sense of humor. If an average Coachella kid who had never heard of them was camped out at their stage waiting for someone else, they would still have a good time.

    Rammstein would have too much backlash, even though they are probably the best option.

    I like Mastodon, but I don't understand how they keep getting booked for these kind of things. They seemed really out of place at Vegoose.
