    Question The Strokes 2010?

    This says that the strokes are headlining isle of wight and that they will probably be doing some festivals in North America and Europe next year. Plus they are putting out a new album next year! Any chance that they'll be at coachella?

    I like the Strokes a lot, but the one time I saw them live I thought they were sort of weak. But I guess I'd see them if they weren't playing at the same time as someone good.

    Isn't Julian usually drunk off his ass when they play live? That might have had something to do with it.

    Not trying to bust your buttons, but the Strokes would subheadline at most.

    Even if it was a reunion? I picture the Strokes having a bigger draw than say, Gorillaz. Just a bigger, more well-known band.

    Well when looking at a headliner like Jack Johnson and comparing him to the Strokes, you're right, they could headline, because they are a well known band. My argument now is that their proper slot should be a subheadliner.

    Easily a headliner.

    Arctic Monkeys is to the UK as The Strokes are to the States.

    Meaning the Strokes are huge here but never made it big across the pond?

    You guys are both wrong. The Strokes are bigger in the UK than the US and Gorillaz are bigger than the Strokes anywhere.

    Don't the big Coachella reunions usually get really high billing? That's the train of thought I was using - big band + reunion rarity = headliner.

    Strokes kick ass.

    Saw Casablancas and the Roots performing the SNL Christmas song on Jimmy Fallon recently. Sounded pretty sweet.

    Seriously. I'm thinking to myself that these people who say the Gorillaz are not headliners are living in Population:37 rural West Virginia or something.

    the Good the Bad and the Queen were listed as #5 on the 2007 and had only JUST released their first and only album. I know I know the 'are they headliners' argument is old, but if Gorillaz show up, we can let it die, they'll either headline or not. I'm still of the not going to happen camp though.

    The Strokes and Muse headlining Coachella 2010=WIN!

    Default Re: The Strokes 2010?

    The Strokes are in the odd category of "too big to be a subheadliner but too small to headline", I think. I guess Daft Punk subheadlined in 2006, but that is a little different as they were in the Dance Tent.

    It would be interesting. I could see them headlining, especially with a new album, but I think they are borderline too small to be a huge draw.

    Muse/Strokes/Gorillaz in 2010 would probably be the closest to having 3 modern, relevant, popular headliners, though. Maybe Muse/White Stripes/Gorillaz morseso...

    The Strokes probably could headline but it all depends on if there is a bigger act playing on that day.
    I am neither foxy, nor a lady.

    The Jimmy Fallon song was awesome.

    Julian's got it.

    And for the clowns who say...'I saw them in x and in y and it sucked' Get lost. Thats like saying 'I saw Jordan at the Garden in '93 and he only dropped 22, he sucked'.

    Get a clue. They're a great band, and those who deny it can stay in Gobi watching the next band trying to emulate The Strokes success.

    Gorillaz more popular than The Strokes? Stop smoking xmas wreaths.

    Thank God for this ^^^...For a second there I thought I was losing it. I'm not going to rag on the Strokes. They're a good band, but I would be amazed and embarrassed if they headlined.
